Question about Saniflo Plumbing
My pump is working and water is going uo to the drain but it is leaking on the floor
Posted by Anonymous on
First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.

The pumps usually have rubber hoses fitted them and they can deteriorate over time, moreso around the clamps that hold them onto the pump. Also, maybe the pump has been slightly opened via a worn seal. Either way, there may be a risk of fire if any water gets onto the electrical connections of the pump or spray onto any other open electrical connection inside the machine. It would certainly be advisable to have it checked with some urgency.
During the final rinse and spin, I would think the pump may not be used during these cycles.
Hope this helps somewhat.

It's not your heater core. If your heater core is out it would leak antifreeze. My wife's 97 Grand Cherokee had the same problem. It is condensation from your AC coming leaking through a round hole in the AC unit at the firewall. Pull the carpet back and dry out underneath it, there will be a lot of water and we had to leave the carpet pulled back with a fan blowing on it all weekend to dry out. I fixed this about 8 years ago so if I remember correctly, the was a plastic part of the AC at the firewall that had a hole in it that the water was coming out of, I could see leaves and debris in the hole so I know it was part of the drain system. I cleaned out what debris I could and used a cone shaped peice of rubber and twisted it in to plug the hole and tapped over the plug to ensure that it wouldn't back out with vibrations, etc. After you dry everything off start the engine and turn the AC on max, you'll be able to see the where the water is leaking from after the AC gets cold. Hope this helps, it drove us nuts for a year before we figured it out and the wet carpet smell wasn't pleasant.
