You have a venting issue, air admittance valves are not for venting purposes, although they do work in some situations.

you may need the services of a plumber to solve your venting issue.

Saniflow pump keeps comming on without flushing toilet


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. If it's turning on by itself then most likely somehow water is draining back into the pump. It could be leaking water from the toilet tank, to the bowl and from the bowl to the pump. Or the check valve inside the discharge elbow may not be closing all the way down and is allowing waste water to drain back into the pump creating enough water pressure that makes the pump kick on and off. Inspect the flapper on the flush valve and the check valve on the discharge elbow on top of the macerating pump.

My saniflow dosnt allways come on when you flush


That can be a problem with the pressure chamber, the membrane might be warped or the micro switch may be defective. Open the lid and remove the motor and presure chamber. Inspect the unit for damages or any broken pieces. Check that the membrane is not warped. This can be tested manually by placing the motor on a work bench and putting pressure on the membrane to manually start the pump on and off. If parts are needed you can buy them through Saniflo directly. Their website is www.saniflo.com

1997grand voyager is blowing cold air new thermostate water pump and the raditor and heater core has been back flushed it started blowing hot air again then went back to blowing cold air again


I would look for a vacum leak on the control valve for the heater. There are 2 lines from the radiator leading back to the firewall. One has a control valve on it that should be vacum controlled. When you back flushed to the heater core you may have forced this valve open temporarily. The control may have low vacum or insufficient vacum to open a stuck valve. The good news is you can actually manually open this valve and tie it in the open position which will at least temporarily solve the problem. Check your vacum lines for leaks and check the valve to make sure it isn't sticking.

My saniflow toilet is blocked and a plumber has told me i need a new motor. where can i get this and how much are they?


If you hear it making noise the motor isnt blown, but it could be clogged.

A quick an easy fix is by filling a 5 gallon bucket with hot water (or warm water) and slowly pouring it into the bowl. The warm water breaks the particles up further, and will help flush the unit out. Make sure you run the water alot after its cleared out (to flush the debris). You can do that by turning on the shower or sink (if connected). If you dont have a shower or sink just keep flushing the toilet.
