I believe you have a problem with a leak. The pump is filling back up. See is the water is leaking out somewhere. Hopefully, you don't have a leak under the house. The water coming into the pump is going somewhere when it comes on.

Either the water cannot be pumped away due to a blockage in the pipe OR the membrane is covered in limescale and no longer operates as it should, try soaking it in a descaler and cold water for 24hrs but it may take 3-4 attempts.

SOURCE: Our Saniplus pump runs for no apparent reason

if the pump operates then the pump is ok. if the pump switches on for "no reason", this indicates that the saniflo unit is filling slowly with water. as you have a saniplus, then you probably have a handbasin and bath / shower connected to it. If the taps / valves drip, or the wc cistern "leaks" into the bowl then these could be the sources.

Number one don't pay that plumber, number two get a new plumber as the last one has not a clue what he's doing. I would go through what I would do but not knowing what kind of a mess the last so called plumber left the pipe joint in it may make things worse. I know this is a pain in the A but you have no other alternative but to clean things up and wait for a new plumber. I hate when people that call themselves plumbers do this to people, it gives all us Plumbers a bad name.

hi keith

Bloues hear.
the water level in the boul is standerd to the manefactuer. the plumber cant help for that. if u put a level on ur toilet and iets level there is noting u can do about it.. the water that keeps on runing is ur seal rubber, its located at the bottem of ur flush meganusum. step 1.... tack off sistern aka pump. then step 2 ... unscrew your flush meganusem, will be the 1 in the middel of sistern. step 3 ... after unsrewing it u wil see there is a rubber. if the rubber looks fine then u must ajust ur flush meganisems arm or lubricate it. bt if rubber is misformed or teared ... u must go to a plumbing shop with the rubber. they will give u new 1 for cheap. and u can just reaplace it and esembel the sistern again

Saniplus pump runs and pumps a cup of water and


unlikely to be a vent problem - more likely a semi blocked 22mm outlet - hence the problem with the old unit & the new one. Tricky to solve as 22mm pipe runs are too small for conventional pipe cleaners. Some plumbers use compressed air to clear, others us pressured water (jetter) unfortunately it always ends up a bit messy.

Toilet pan installation procedure


Hi muller2012,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: the procedure to join pan to waste pipe without leaking. do i silicone around rubber seal?

In 30 years this is the first time I've heard of a toilet "pan". If you're refering to the bowl, it connects with a wax ring and a pair of bolts. You then caulk around where the bowl meets the floor to keep cleaning liquids from getting under and getting stinky. If this is not a standard toilet it would be a good idea to post pictures and give make and model.
