Question about Saniflo SaniPlus-Round SaniPlus Macerator Toilet with Round Bowl

1 Answer

I have a toilet with a push button flush mechanism (allowing half or full flush). The toilet has a macerator behind it. If you flush the toilet and the macerator jams, the push button stays stuck in and the water keeps coming, flooding the bathroom. This has happened twice so it is not a conincidence that the button sticks in when macerator blocks. What could be causing this and what is the solution?

This seems like a problem with your cistern and not your macerator - I have a similar set up and if your push button is stuck you need to check the mechanism in the cistern - also you should have an overflow that drains into your loo within the cistern so you should check this for blockages as well.

What's wrong with macerating toilet?


What is most likely the case is that the toilet is not properly vented by waste plumbing standards. Not all jurisdictions require macerating toilets to be vented, but by not doing so causes pressure in the drain lines as well as some suction which can pull water from sink traps, allowing odors and insects to get into the home.

Hello. Your lid has two buttons so you can do a half flush or a full flush. A water saving feature. Since the toilet is flushing by itself every hour or so, you must have a leaking flush valve. Replace the valve to solve that problem. Joe

Weak dual flush does not empty the toilet bowl.


well, yes... but apart from providing you with a forum in which to vent your frustration I'm not sure how you think we might help. I have the same problem with a dual flush cistern, but in my case I know that the root of the problem lies in the fact that the soil pipe leading from the bowl has insufficient fall (because the previous owner of my house moved the toilet further from the down pipe). Maybe something like this is contributing to your problem too?
