Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. Most likely somehow water is draining back into the pump. Check the flapper in the flush valve, inside the toilet tank and see if its leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump. Also, in the 90 degree discharge elbow there is a check valve with a rubber flapper that opens up to allow waste to pump out and it closes to prevent waste water from draining back into the pump. The check valve may be defective or it may be stuck open allowing waste water to drain back into the pump and is making the unit kick on and off by itself.

Saniflo has power but the blades don't turn?


That could be a problem with either a blockage in the blade or the impeller or a bad starting capacitor. I sugges to open up the unit and inspect the blade and impeller if there is no blockage then might be the starting capacitor that will need to be replaced.

My toilet is having a small leak from the cystern which meant the saniflo switched on, on its own, every 24 hours or so. I switched it off at the mains but had not realised about the leak so the toilet...



About leak, it may be that the washers are worn out, or you might have the nut too tight.

If the pump isn't working, the length or height of the installation is over the specification, or there are too many bends/elbows or the pump chamber is blocked. First try to check this and the right position and installation of the components (click over image)...

Saniflo keeps going off when not flushed


Water pressure makes the unit turn on and off. If it turning on by itself then could be water draining back into the pump. Water could be leaking from the check valve on the discharge elbow into the pump or from the toilet tank into the bowl. Inspect the flapper on the check valve and the flapper on the flush valve.

The saniflo keeps cutting in even when not flushed


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. It will turn on by itself if water is somehow draining back into the pump. It could be water leaking from the toilet tank into the bowl and from the bowl to the pump or the flapper on the check valve inside the discharge elbow may be stuck open or could be defective and allowing waste water to drain back into the pump, once it builds up enough water pressure inside the pump, the unit will kick on and off by itself.

My saniflo keeps coming on about every hour on its own and we cannot stop it making an awful noise


Suspect that you may have a leak at the flapper of the toilet bleeding water into the holding tank causing the pump to run unnecessarily.

Replace the flapper and clean the mating surface.

Hi there, we have a Saniflo system for a basement bathroom installed. The system stopped working so we checked the fuse box and it had tripped. We switched it back on and it worked fine for an hour. We had...


The saniflo system uses 2 stages stage one works sorta like a garbage disposal it breakes up waste, stage two is a high flo pump. one fo these has gone bad meaning the motor has burned up and shorted the sparking in the breaker pannel you refered to. As far as I know theese systems are self contained so you will have to have the unit repaced here is a link to the website so you can find a dealer or installer near you

Saniflo works in short burst when not flushed eg in night


Sound to me that the toilet is over filling and in doing so water will over flow down the pan. This is definately what I would check first!
