Question about Saniflo & Saniplus& Macerator Pump

2 Answers

The saniflo keeps cutting in even when not flushed

The saniflo just comes on itself .Then it stops and then starts again about half hour later.
Switching off main switch stops the problem but does allow us to use the loo when needed!

Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. It will turn on by itself if water is somehow draining back into the pump. It could be water leaking from the toilet tank into the bowl and from the bowl to the pump or the flapper on the check valve inside the discharge elbow may be stuck open or could be defective and allowing waste water to drain back into the pump, once it builds up enough water pressure inside the pump, the unit will kick on and off by itself.

Hi, sounds like there is a blockage in the unit the unit should be easy enough to be removed and check the inlet and outlet for any obstruction or try poring hot water down the toilet sometimes the hot water is enough to break up papper blockages

Be very careful, it sounds like an electrical failure, were the machine has cut out to protect you and itself. You need an expert there and quickly. Water and electric are a bad mix and more house fires are caused by washers than most other appliances.

We have a saniflo. We were out, and our babysitter (who isn't familiar with saniflos) was in the bathroom and suddenly she said water was flooding out of the toilet - she said she had heard a loud noise...


If the apple core was right at the pump intake at the time the pump kicked on it very well may have been the problem. The pumps in those units are not the strongest in the world anyway. They are not made to grind up anything that has any bulk to it.

So the answer to the question in my opinion is yes. But you well want to keep a close eye on it for a while.

When flushed pump starts water goes but pump keeps running when level is reached


pump keeps running - again this is indicative of a dirty / scaled saniflo. You need to clean / descale the saniflo. if this does not work then an outlet pipe blockage (22mm) may have occurred (unlikely if the unit is operating ok). Saniflo sell their own cleaner, which can be introduced via the wc bowl. If this does not work, then its time for a proper clean ( remove unit, jet clean, acid descale, wash, replace). Obviously not everyones cuppa tea.

Pumps for a few seconds then stops & pumps again for another few seconds & so on


The toilet will flush normally and shut down. Then imediately after it has shut down, as it should, it will start up again and keep going through the flush cycle until I unplug the power going to the pump. After about ten minutes, I can plug it back in and it then will not start up again until I press the flush button.

Saniflo works in short burst when not flushed eg in night


Sound to me that the toilet is over filling and in doing so water will over flow down the pan. This is definately what I would check first!
