You cannot use a cheater, studdor or mechanical vent or an AAV on any Saniflo product. As they are considered one way vents, they only allow air to flow one way. Saniflo pumps must have an 1 1/2" vent pipe vented to the open air, air must flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times, otherwise the pump will short cycle and the solids will not leave the toilet. You will have to flush it several times to get rid of the waste and eventually the motor will go bad. Make sure is vented properly.

This system can be put on a studor (AAV ) vent if vent can not be reached.

Any approved vent through Lowes , Home Depot or any plumbing supply house. Are allowable to use per plumbing codes in all states.

Vent on top is blowing bubbles and toilet pan is filling up with effluent


If you have a Saniplus model then the vent connection is on the top right side of the pump casing if you are facing the toilet with pump sitting behind. The vent pipe needs to be minimum 1 1/2" and must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out at all times. To the left side of the vent connection is the discharge pipe which should be a 3/4" or 1" discharge pipe. You can try disconnecting the vent pipe and run it with the vent pipe open, also you can disconnect the discharge pipe and put a bucket at the end of the discharge elbow and flush the toilet into the bucket, it will free flow into the bucket and there are no restrictions. That way you can tell if the problem is the pump or the installation set up.

Typically when solids don't leave the toilet after one flush or if it short cycles like is doing, then is definitely a pressure problem. Is the unit vented via an 1 1/2" vent pipe to the open air? Please disconnect the vent pipe and leave the vent connection open to the room, flush the toilet and check if it makes a difference. Air must flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times so it can work properly. An obstruction on the vent pipe can cause this issue. Also could be calcium build up inside the rim of the bowl. Pour a few cups of vinegar on the toilet tank and then flush the toilet, it should get rid of calcium right away.

Check the vent pipe, most of the Saniflo products require an 1 1/2" vent pipe vented to the open air for air flow purposes. Air must flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times.

Saniplus draining in pulses


When you flush the toilet, the Saniplus will turn on and off once or twice, this is normal. If it turns on 3 times or more then could be a problem with venting or the discharge pipe installation may not be properly installed. But when you run the sink or shower it will turn on and off constantly, this is normal. The Saniplus pumps out the water as it comes in.

The air breather hole must be kept plugged in the US as odors will emmit through there is left open. I was told that it was only used for European installations. In the US the breather hole mut be kept plugged or seal capped. You must vent the unit using an 1 1/2" vent pipe and must be vented to the open air. As per plbg. codes it should be attached to the main vent stack or all the way through the roof.
