Any brand approved for septic should work well in the saniflow system, but the key is to use as little as reasonably possible and flush as you go. Big wads of any type will compromise the system.

Toilet water spins but wont drain . not evn when you add water to tank, it just overflows then


if it is a normal toilet / sewerage system, then get yourself some caustic soda ( make up a solution with water) and at the first bend in the sewerage line outside the toilet, remove the inspection cap and pour the solution in the pipe ,replace the cap and wait around 1 hour
remove the cap and use a hose to put extra water in to move the build up
If you have trees in the yard near the sewerage line then forget the caustic soda but get in a plumber with a snake cutter to cut the roots of the tree/s that have blocked the pipe
if it is a septic system then have the tank pumped out
if it is a tank system like in a caravan then empty the tank

Bought a rural property two years ago and had a council inspection over another matter when they noticed water in the paddock the septic pipes were not connected to the septic except the toilet


Terry is correct
sewerage to the sewerage pipe or septic tank with the overflow of the tank running out into a properly constructed septic pit
The rest is grey water and can be used to water gardens ,lawns, paddocks etc

Toilet bowl will not refill


It is possible that the vent pipe behind the toilet is clogged (or was not installed properly). Some bathrooms are set up with one shared vent pipe, and a clog in one of the lines leading to it can cause similar problems.
The vent pipe in each bathroom does 2 things:
1: it lets the sewer gas go past the bathroom and up out the roof so you don't get sewer gas in the house.
2: It breaks the siphon as water goes from fixtures down to the big sewer pipes in the house. If it isn't working for a sink, it's not much of a problem because air gets mixed in with the water as it does down the sink, and this breaks the siphon. But in a toilet, it jsut keeps pulling water down the pipe until the water level in the toilet gets low enough to let air into the pipe, breaking the siphon.

It's not an easy problem to fix and often involves removing walls to get at pipes.
A plumber can bring a snake tool and try clearing the pipes from below or from the roof, and might even be able to bring a steerable snake that lets him control how it goes through the pipe.

may need a backflow preventer in the waste line under the sink..it is basically a ball on a spring..designed to make the water go only one way..I am guessing the wasteline was opened up with a plumbing snake..that pump may have too much backpressure from the head line..

Hi every now and again we are getting a sewer smell from our bathroom we have only recently moved in the house so not sure what to do, but it doesn't seem to happen all the time and everything flushes okay...


The smell may be coming from the sink trap if there is a problem with the vent pipe (that's in the wall from the sewer line to the roof). Do you ever hear gurgling in the sink drain when you flush? When you have the smell again, stick your head in the sink and see if that's where it's coming from. If you have a floor drain, the smell may be coming from there. In either case, a bit of water added to the drain will fill the trap and stop the smell. Please vote if you found this helpful. Good luck, Al K

It is blocked how do i unblock it


Turn off electricity to saniflo.Turn off water to toilet (normally an inline valve). Empty toilet bowl and cistern of water. Remove toilet, cistern. Disconnect inlet pipes to saniflo (careful as backed up water will flow out!).

Take out Saniflo (outside is normally good). Open up top with star driver and use a flat blade for the plastic retaining flaps.Be sure to wear rubber gloves to keep out germs from cuts etc on your hands.

Cover mains cables with plastic food bag and tape up. Use a solution of bleach / warm water, fill up the sanifo and leave for a while. Swish around and empty into a drain etc. I also use a hosepipe to make sure I get it really clean (esp under motor and float switch). Also check inlet pipe flappy bit and the actual pipes that connect to the saniflo

Good luck

We had that problem but the unit was built in and I could not get at it, the outlet pipe sounds like it is blocked, I cleared mine by connecting a pipe from the cold tap to the outlet pipe and flushing.
