Could be something stuck on the blade or the impeller. You can unplug the unit from the GFI, remove all the piping attached, remove the unit completely out the back of the toilet, pry open the lid with a flat head screwdriver, remove 2 screws in front and 1 at the back of the pump casing, then you will be able to remove the motor and pressure chamber out of the pump casing. Therefore you can put it on a work bench and inspect the blade and impeller for obstructions.

The bath water won't pump out. Seems like there's too much water left in the Saniplus itself to allow the bath inlet valve to open. Can this be adjusted? The toilet and wash basin are working OK.


This is a bit of a puzzle, if theres water in the Suniplus then the float valve will operate and the water will pumped out as it does for the toilet and wash basin.
I can only think that the bath discharge none return valve is stuck and needs removing and cleaning.

Hope that solves the problem.

We have a basement bathroom. The bath drains away very slowly, but everything else seems fine - toilet and sink draining/flushing fine. Can we use a usual unblocker (eg sodium hydorchloride) to unblock?


I worked on a lot of Saniflo products, they do not recommend using any products that have bleach or chlorine. Make sure the flapper inside the side inlet where the bath drains, is not obstructed.

Saniplus has bath water going into it as well as toilet water.Why does it take at least two flushes before the bath water all goes?


The Saniplus works on a float switch which is a rubber membrane in the pressure chamber (where electrical components are) water pressure pushes up in the membrane and the unit kicks on and pumps the waste out. Once the pressure releases, the membrane goes back down and shuts off. If the membrane is warped or solids are build up at the bottom, it will not allow it to kick on and off as it should. You might want to inspect that membrane and have it cleaned or replaced.

Sanivite 3 makes humming noise and no longer pumps water out


Jonathan: You need to remove the pump from the shell and make sure the grinding impeller is not cloged up with hair or other junk. Also, is you drain line out of the unit completly clear?

My neighbours saniflow toilet is drivng me mad. The motor keeps whirring every 5 mins. Whats the problem, please!


Water pressure is what makes the unit kick on and off. If its kicking on by itself most likely water is somehow draining back into the pump. Start by checking the flapper in the flush valve inside the toilet tank, it may be leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump. Also inspect the check valve inside the 90 degree elbow where the waste is pump out from. The check valve may not be closing properly and is allowing waste water to drain back into the pump creating water pressure making the unit kick on and off by itself.

Water has filled the toiled bowl,wash basin and bath. And it's not emptying


Your drain line is clogged. need to find the clean out on your drain lines and snake it out. If tou don't have a clean out , you have to go through the vent stack on the roof.

Sanipro xr is less than 6 months old been working fine but has recently become rather noisy. Sometimes goes off in the middle of the night for no reason.


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. Somehow water is draining back into the pump casing, check the flapper on the check valve inside the discharge elbow, it may not be closing properly or may be obstructed allowing waste water to drain back into the pump. Also check the flapper on the flush valve inside the toilet tank (water closet) the flapper may be leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump casing sitting behind. As far as making a loud noise, there could be a blockage on the drain pipe, blade or impeller. The discharge pipe may be loose, not clamped against the wall and is rattling against the wall when in use.

System works perfect however the pump now has started turning on every 10 or 12 min and runs for about 2 seconds then shuts off


This means that water is draining back into the pump, creating enough water pressure that is making the pump kick on and off at all times. You need to inspect the check valve inside the discharge elbow where the waste is being pumped out, the check valve may be obstructed or may need to be replaced. Also check the flapper on the flush valve inside the toilet tank (water closet) the flapper may not be sitting properly allowing water to drain into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump.

Sounds like a restriction in the outlet pipe, the 2 galls from a flush are OK but the bath or shower is more, especiallly if you have flushed before you shower, try drain unblocking chemicals or flushing the outlet pipe with mains water from a hose
