Saniflo pump motor turns off and then back on continuously


IF this is installed in a sump, the back flow valve is not working or was not installed, The pump is pushing water up and there is nothing to hold it up. The pump stops and water comes back down and it starts over again.

I have a Sanipro,it sounds like it pumps real weak and goes off quickly instead of emptying out everything. then it will come on again after aseveral seconds . Could it be the Condenser on the motor?

Saniflo motor running constantly


Depending on the model name, it might be a build up of waste at the bottom of the membrane or the membrane might be warped, if it is warped it will need to be replaced. Most Saniflo units have a pressure chamber and a membrane which activates the pump on and off, that could be the main reason why is not shutting off. Also you can refer to the installation manual or the schematic diagram. If you don have it you can download it from the Saniflo website at www.saniflo.com good luck with your unit.

I just bought a new house and the saniflo toilet is fairly loud. is there something that I can put in it to clean it out.


If the unit is making a loud noise then there could be an obstruction in the blade or impeller, you will have to pry open the lid using a flat head screwdriver and then remove the motor out of the casing, the blade is on top of the motor and the impeller is at the bottom of the motor.

Saniflo recommends using any cleaning products that does not contains bleach or chlorine such as liquid lysol, Mr. clean or simple green. Also Saniflo sells a descaler that is designed to clean the inside of pump casing.

My Saniflo sanicompact does not flush away, when i press the flush botton it does not work, the toilet buzzes all the time. when the water gets to a level it use to pump away but has stoped doing this.


saniflo buzzing all the time means that the motor is trying to run but cannot. indicates that something is blocking the pump impeller from rotating. unit needs to be removed, cleared and tested. if fault contiues you may blow the fuse (if you are lucky) otherwise the motor will eventually burn out. get this checked soon.
