Saniflo undersink macerator keeps trying to pump every 10 seconds or so.

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.

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.

SOURCE: I recently had a Saniflo unit replaced after 20

David,

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?
Thank you,
Tom

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.

Unfortunately the systems are desiged to pump out. The disintegrated screen thing is part of the maceration end of the system. Your going to have to clean the thing out and replace the macerator.

When flushed pump starts water goes but pump keeps running when level is reached


pump keeps running - again this is indicative of a dirty / scaled saniflo. You need to clean / descale the saniflo. if this does not work then an outlet pipe blockage (22mm) may have occurred (unlikely if the unit is operating ok). Saniflo sell their own cleaner, which can be introduced via the wc bowl. If this does not work, then its time for a proper clean ( remove unit, jet clean, acid descale, wash, replace). Obviously not everyones cuppa tea.

Saniflo is for my shower only.the pump works then stops whilst in the middle of a shower. 10 minutes later it starts up again.


Sounds like the pump is overheating and is being protected by an internal automatic reset high temperature switch. Have the pump serviced. It might need nee bearings and seals.
