Some models uses a circuit board and some uses a pressure chamber and a float switch at the bottom to activate the pump. At the bottom of the pressure chamber you will find a rubber membrane; the way it works: water pressure pushes up on the membrane and turns on, pumps the waste out, as the pressure releases the membrane goes back down and shuts off. Could be a warped membrane or something may be stuck at the bottom of the membrane. Or the micro switch may be stuck on the on position. You will have to open up the unit and inspect it.

Saniflow macerator


Depending on the pump model it can be that the float switch (membrane) might be warped or solids could be build up at the bottom which dont allow it to shut off. You wil have to open up the unit, remove the motor with pressure chamber and inspect it.;

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

How can you tell if the waste pipe is blocked on a saniflow toile


Yes the bowl will be slow to empty. Try squeezing the white discharge hose as the unit operates, if there is a blockage then this hose will be hard to squeeze. If hose is soft then blockage could be in the toilet pan U-bend in which case fill bowl with very hot water and leave to soften the toilet paper.

Saniflow pump will not switch off


indicates a dirty / semi blocked unit. try cleaning and descaling. if the unit is old then it could be the microswitch - but i think not as these tend to fail to switch on rather than off. Try the dirt option first.

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.
