Yes! If the system you are talking about has a tank behind the toilet, that tank only pumps out for that bathroom group. It pumps out with a 2" line into the existing gravity system. Your other batrooms are on that gravity system so you would be fine to use them. The only way there would be a problem is if the main sewer line out of the house is backed up. But you would be having problems if that were so (possibly the washing machine connection in the basement would be overflowing. Sound like the pump float in the small tank behind the toilet is hung up on somthing not allowing it to shut off. No need to get a plumber for that. Just remove the top of the small box and see why the float off of the pump is not shutting off. If has been installed for awhile (a few years) possibly the float contact could be gone and in that case a plumber would be the best bet to get a part needed. But save some $ and see if it is hung up on somthing (dried toilet paper) and clean it off and see if the pump stops when plugged in. If so you just fixed it yourself. If not then call the plumber. I'm a licensed plumber so I have a bit of background here.

At this point, opening the access cover is the last thing you do if it is below the water level in the pipes. Your system has a partial blockage in the pipes between the pump and external septic tanks or sewage dump site, that is the reason why when you use the plunger , half of the amount of waste water comes up to the sink and bathtub. You to open up your pipelines to remove blockage , probably tree roots in the pipes.

Saniplus pump sounds like a jackhammer


I'm glad you asked today, and not 3 months ago!
We also have this model, and ours is hooked to a septic tank, and with a whole lot of trouble, I believe we have your answer.
It is: Toilet paper.
You can pull up the Sani-flush people on line, and they will help you disassemble your unit and clean it. You should find it bound up with a big wad of toilet paper. The newer toilet papers, particularly the softer/gentler/stronger ones, are more glue than paper, and will clog up everything. After our latest go-around a few months ago, we had to go to some stores and buy an assortment of toilet papers, and put samples in glass jars with water, and shake them, to see which would disintegrate, and which stayed together. Because of this, sounds like you will find this the problem. Best not push the motor, or it may burn up, and be quite expensive to fix.
Be blessed,

We have a basement bathroom. The bath drains away very slowly, but everything else seems fine - toilet and sink draining/flushing fine. Can we use a usual unblocker (eg sodium hydorchloride) to unblock?


I worked on a lot of Saniflo products, they do not recommend using any products that have bleach or chlorine. Make sure the flapper inside the side inlet where the bath drains, is not obstructed.

Sewage backs into the shower when the toilet is flushed


Obviously the drain line from your toilet to main drain out of the house ( used by upstairs ) has a blockage from your toilet line to "Y" in to main drain line. Depending on how it has been plumbed, there may be a clean-out between the 2 that can be used to remove the blockage. Your drain for shower is piped in to same line as toilet, thus when blocked at other end, overflows to shower. You can try some drain cleaner down shower drain if it will go. You might get lucky and release the blockage before plumber shows up .

They did not caulk around the bottom where it meets the floor as I am able to get a piece of papertowel under the toilette...If I caulk around the toilette then I won't be able to see if it's leaking...


If you use a clear caulk around the bottom and the leak stops then we will know it is coming from under and it will need to be pulled and replaced. if leak continues then there would be no need to pull the toilet any more.

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.

Installing a new toilet/bathroom upstairs, no soil pipe how do I find the sewer drain and hows the soil pipe attached


please hire a plumber, or a plumbing consultant. there can be many issues with installing a bathroom upstairs. Plumbing is not your only issue, you must think about other building codes as well, including the structure. you can't just start cutting!

My Bathroom Extractor Fan does not work properly and for some reason the bathroom smells of cigarette smoke when the upstairs neighbours are at home!! Our landlord say's this is not possible!!!


Yes, very possible!. The bathroom fan is connected together, and the upstairs one is down-drafting to you. Have the exhaust checked for blockage, or buy a fan that has a built-in damper that closes the exit when not in use.
