The unit has an 1 1/2" vent connection on top of the unit which must be vented to the open air (outside of the house) as per plumbing codes. Check for any loose connections or maybe the connection into the main sewer line may be leaking causing it to smell.

Can you tie into a common dscharge pipe when plumbing a sanivite and saniplus?


I think it can be done , but it may be against the local code for your area. The obvious concern is back up of sewage in the sink, and washing machine.

1999 chevy silverado truck will start first thing in the morning, but then has problems starting the rest of the day. Sounds and smells flooded too. Starts best when its very cold outside.


In the morning if you turn the key w/o starting it and let it sit a while before starting, does it have trouble starting / smell flooded? If so, likely a bad / leaky injector.

Otherwise, I'd check the O2 sensor(s), likely have a bad one.

hope this helps.

My sanivite 3 has a washer connected to the bottom inlet and a sink to the top inlet. when water is run from the sink the system will pump the water out, however when the washer is discharging waste the...


A washing machine discharges water water at a very high velocity and high capacity. This is far more waste water than the pump was designed to handle. The washer discharge must be connected to what's called an "indirect waste", that is, it must discharge into a laundry tub or sump, so that the excess can be stored until it can be taken by the pump. The specific code that governs this is in chapter 27 of the International Residential Code.

Also in the manufacturers instructions, they allow the discharge from a washing machine ,through an indirect waste. [sic] "The Sanivite is a drain pump that is ideally suitable for use in a basement apartment or anywhere in the house where additional fixtures are most wanted. It will pump waste water away from a variety of sources such as: a kitchen sink, laundry sink, washing machine ***(indirect connection)***, dishwasher, bar sink, etc."

This pump will never be able to handle the discharge directly and you need to provide a receptor to accommodate a washing machine. Is there any possibility of adding a laundry tub adjacent the washer and Sanivite pump?

Motor will not shut off unless disconnected from the electrical outlet. Unit is connected to toilet - tub & sink. Unit model is: Sanivite EN 12050-2 FF0V30 120v 60Hz 5,7A 4/10 HP age 4 yrs.


The Sanivite is a gray water pump, does not have a connection for a toilet. It has a pressure chamber inside the pump casing and a float switch at the bottom of pressure chamber. You will find a black rubber membrane which water pressure pushes up on the membrane and turns the unit on and off. It could be that something is stuck at the bottom of the membrane keeping it in the on position the whole time or the membrane might be warped. Also the micro switch may be stuck on the on position. Pry open the lid with a flat head screwdriver and inspect the pressure chamber.

if the unit is properly clean and you have checked the fuse - then i suggest it is the microswitch that needs replacing. these tend to go (break) within 5 years on the sanivite 3 models. If not the swich then it could be the capacitor (try this first - although as the swich is located next to the capacitor you can test this for operation at the same time). if none of this works then its time for a new unit.

Smells bad


I have a very bad smell in my elite kenmore diswasher. We have had it for a year now. I have been smelling this now for several weeks and I didn't know where the smell was coming from until this morning when I pulled the door down to unload my dishes.
