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,

Sanishower operated for short time and then just

It needs cleaning out regularly - at least once a year! We have one fitted to a shower that is used daily. The small amount of hair - that falls out every time hair is washed under the shower - builds up and clogs up the pump. We are on our second pump, the first installed just over 10 years ago, this one is under 3 years old and it already looks like it will have to be replaced.

My sanivite 3 has a washer connected to the bottom

A washing machine discharges water water at a very high velocity and high capacity. This is far more waste water than the pump was designed to handle. The washer discharge must be connected to what's called an "indirect waste", that is, it must discharge into a laundry tub or sump, so that the excess can be stored until it can be taken by the pump. The specific code that governs this is in chapter 27 of the International Residential Code. Also in the manufacturers instructions, they allow the discharge from a washing machine ,through an indirect waste. [sic] "The Sanivite is a drain pump that is ideally suitable for use in a basement apartment or anywhere in the house where additional fixtures are most wanted. It will pump waste water away from a variety of sources such as: a kitchen sink, laundry sink, washing machine ***(indirect connection)***, dishwasher, bar sink, etc." This pump will never be able to handle the discharge directly and you need to provide a receptor to accommodate a washing machine. Is there any possibility of adding a laundry tub adjacent the washer and Sanivite pump?

Does any one know where I might be able to buy some new (old stock perhaps) traditional 1938/39 bathroom washbasin tap valves or complete taps that are imperial threads?They are needed for an Art Deco

To the best of my knowledge many traditional designs of taps are still available and while the internal threads might or might not be Imperial, the connection thread invariably is. I have in the past changed the interior parts of taps that are badly worn and even cannibalising old taps of similar size and design I found some would fit and others wouldn't. Each manufacturer would choose the thread pitch and form that suited them best from the great many Imperial threads available so while the internals of the taps of a single manufacturer would interchange, the interchangeability with other brands would be accidental. There is usually a salvage yard in most districts as well as scrapyards and recyclers - lots of exploring to do.

My sanibest Pro is not working. Does Nothing! no grinding, munching, flushing.. Any ideas? Does it have a reset button?

There is no reset button on that model. Suggest putting a plug on the cable and trying another source of power first. Or could be a problem with the cutting disc being jammed or the condenser has blown. If more that 5yrs old then replace the whole pump.

When flushed the toilet is filling up with water,

The first thing I would do is to make sure the discharge line is not plugged or the check valve hanging up in the closed position. Then I would remove the pump and check the impeller to see if it still firmly attached to the pump shaft and that the vanes are in good shape. If the impeller is damaged then it can be replaced. Otherwise if you know that all the drain lines are clear make sure that the impeller inlet in clear.
If you cannot find anything else wrong then you may have to replace the pump but I would try the least expensive thing first. Thank you and good luck.

The Pump just stops working. 'We open top and push rotor and couple of revolutions and it will start again when we plug it back in.

Motor bearings are damaged, they now have a "tight spot" which you might be able to feel if you rotate the shaft by hand OR motor windings are damaged and overheating causing the motor to stop.
