Question about Saniflo Sanibest macerator with multiple connections

1 Answer

Saniplus. Pump will run continuously and water does not get pumped out. Shower backs up. I have dismantled entire pump, no visible clog. Reinstalled. Worked for 2 min, then same thing...pumps continuously. I read about float switch. What and where is it? I have schematics/instructions, still can't figure it out.

Vent on top is blowing bubbles and toilet pan is filling up with effluent


If you have a Saniplus model then the vent connection is on the top right side of the pump casing if you are facing the toilet with pump sitting behind. The vent pipe needs to be minimum 1 1/2" and must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out at all times. To the left side of the vent connection is the discharge pipe which should be a 3/4" or 1" discharge pipe. You can try disconnecting the vent pipe and run it with the vent pipe open, also you can disconnect the discharge pipe and put a bucket at the end of the discharge elbow and flush the toilet into the bucket, it will free flow into the bucket and there are no restrictions. That way you can tell if the problem is the pump or the installation set up.

I have a saniplus in a bathroom with a sink & shower. It isn't used often. The water backs up in the shower. The toilet won't flush, only hums. Any suggestions?


If the pump is humming and backing up then there is a blockage on the drain pipe, blades or the impeller. Also the capacitor may have gone bad and it will need to be replaced. The capacitor drives the blade and impeller, if it goes bad then it would just hum and not pump out the waste.

Saniplus draining in pulses


When you flush the toilet, the Saniplus will turn on and off once or twice, this is normal. If it turns on 3 times or more then could be a problem with venting or the discharge pipe installation may not be properly installed. But when you run the sink or shower it will turn on and off constantly, this is normal. The Saniplus pumps out the water as it comes in.

Our Saniplus pump runs for no apparent reason. Do I need a plumber, an electrician or a new unit?


if the pump operates then the pump is ok. if the pump switches on for "no reason", this indicates that the saniflo unit is filling slowly with water. as you have a saniplus, then you probably have a handbasin and bath / shower connected to it. If the taps / valves drip, or the wc cistern "leaks" into the bowl then these could be the sources.

Our Saniflo - Saniplus works fine and efficiently when we flush the toilet, if we use the shower or bath,when emptying the water the flow is not as strong/as much pressure like a toilet flush & the...


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

Saniplus motor (flushing noise) keeps repeating


I believe you have a problem with a leak. The pump is filling back up. See is the water is leaking out somewhere. Hopefully, you don't have a leak under the house. The water coming into the pump is going somewhere when it comes on.
