Question about Saniflo Plumbing
The undersink macerator has just started to draw in and pump from the top feed pipe every few seconds. The pump was getting hot so have turned it off and left t overnight. Turned on again this am but still trying to draw water/waste from top pipe which sits on lid. Have turned off pump.
The "tank level" switch is stuck on. You may be able to clear it by cleaning the system/pump with a water hose (outside of course) so you will have to take the system apart then give it a good cleaning. May not help but at least you will have tried.

Testimonial: "Problem resolved prior to this posting but the solution is very helpful and gves me more info for the future."
if the pump is working correctly, it can either be, need more water to prime it, or something in the well, such as low water, plugged filter, etc....sometimes when you have a system that is intermittently used, it can take 20 or 30 minutes of continuous priming to get it to pull, enough water to maintain the prime.

I am not directly familiar with this unit but have worked with others. The bubbling sound at the end of the run does sound odd. My thoughts go towards venting of this discharge pipe; is this properly vented?

The float switch will be the problem.
We do not replace the switch, just change the unit as labour to strip and replace switch makes it un economical.
