Water pressure makes the unit turn on and off. It will only activate on it's own when enough water pressure is present. Most likely it can be water leaking from the toilet tank into the bowl, and from the bowl into the pump. Or could also be that waste water is slowly draining back into the pump through the check valve on the discharge elbow, creating enough water pressure that it will make the unit kick on and off.

SOURCE: saniflow keeps on macerating after flushing

Sounds like a stuck float switch .. probably due to gunk inside the macerator. You'll need to empty all of the water out of the WC, cisterm, isolate the electricity and disconnect the saniflo (i.e. take out WC and cistern), open up the saniflo and give it a good clean

Good luck

This seems like a problem with your cistern and not your macerator - I have a similar set up and if your push button is stuck you need to check the mechanism in the cistern - also you should have an overflow that drains into your loo within the cistern so you should check this for blockages as well.

Macerator assembly goes clunk when I hit the switch and at the same time the pump flushes the toilet contents. What is making the lound clunk sound, would it be a macerator assembly part?


Probably something solid stuck in the blades. If you have children then it is possible that something that is not cuttable has been flushed and is between the blades.

question aint clear.what do you want? this is in relation to plumbing and drainage however try to use ordinary instruments like gauze wire to filter the water so as to stop the blacking and you can use a rubber to hold the outlet pipe that pushes into the top of the macerator box.try it

I have just installed today and when flushing toilet the water is pumped away but the motor just keeps running and overheated then cut out


Gain access to the macerator float(s), and make sure that they operate freely. You may have some packaging or other material preventing it's correct operation.

Saniflo keeps going off when not flushed


Water pressure makes the unit turn on and off. If it turning on by itself then could be water draining back into the pump. Water could be leaking from the check valve on the discharge elbow into the pump or from the toilet tank into the bowl. Inspect the flapper on the check valve and the flapper on the flush valve.

It really sounds like something that shouldn't be there is in the macerator/ejector. If you are not familiar with the internal workings, call the plumber who installed it. Best case scenario, it is just something that needs to be removed. Worst case scenario, the macerator/ejector and motor bearings are shot and need to be replaced.

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.
