How it Compares To The Competition
If you want the best, and money is no object, then Saniflo Macerators are a perfect choice. Other macerator brands like Stuart Turner, Grundfos and Flo-Force offer equivalent products at significantly lower prices, but none has the brand recognition of Saniflo.
The Saniplus Up allows you to fit an additional bathroom with ease. With two inlets and a greater tank capacity, the Saniplus Up can easily deal with a WC, Wash Basin, Bidet and even the highest output power showers, whatever you wish to use, the Saniplus Up has you covered. Inside of the Saniplus, Up is a high-tech pressure chamber which stops and starts with water movement, a motor, ultra powerful stainless steel macerator blades, and of course the pump. With Saniplus UP it is now easier for you to install a brand new bathroom in any part of the house, without all the hassle of trying to fit a new plumbing system.
The purpose of the Saniplus Up is to remove the waste from your toilet and are extremely useful if your bathroom doesn't have immediate access to a local sewage pipe as it can pump waste up to 5 metres vertically and an impressive 100mm horizontally. The Saniflo UP is manufactured by the UK's leading brand for macerators, they're domestic and commercial leaders, so you know that this is a product to trust, however in the very rare case that you do find that there is something wrong with the product, you're covered by a fantastic 5 year manufacturing guarantee, against any factory defects, just for that added peace of mind.

Mind The Gap!
Depending on the design of your toilet, older style macerator designs with the WC connection in the centre (like this Saniflo model) may push the cistern away from the wall far enough to leave a gap.
This can easily be resolved by the addition of a wooden batten between the wall and the cistern as shown.

5 Saniflo Problems and How To Fix Them
You may not need to replace an old Saniflo unit. Below are five common problems associated with Saniflo brand macerators and some quick tips on how you can fix them.
The Saniflo Is Giving Off a Terrible Smell !
Bad smells can be due to a build-up of limescale and human waste in the 2-3 inches of water that’s always left in the Saniflo. Other Macerator brands have self-cleaning technology, but Saniflo’s need to be descaled regularly. If you’ve never descaled your macerator then you may have to do this a few times to clear the smell.
The Saniflo Keeps Tripping The Electrics
If your Saniflo is tripping the electrics, it usually means that water is getting into it and leads to the circuit shutting off to avoid any other damages, or there’s a loose wire. Always make sure the electrics are off before you inspect the pump. If there’s an issue with the motor seal, then call a certified Saniflo engineer to repair it. If the motor is worn or faulty, this unfortunately means that you’ll have to purchase a new macerator.
Saniflo Leaks During Operation
One reason for your Saniflo leaking from the vent could be that there is a big build up of waste inside which will have to be manually removed.
It’s also possible that the motor is nearing the end of its life and can’t work as hard as it used to. This would mean the whole macerator should be replaced.
The rubber waste outlet could have shrunk because of too much toilet cleaner. If water is spraying out the vent, you will need to replace the rubber waste outlet.
The Saniflo Starts On its Own!
There could be a few reasons as to why your pump keeps starting on its own throughout the day and night: (Excluding the possibility of a ghost!)
The microswitch is misfiring because it keeps thinking the tank is full – you will have to manually remove the waste between the switch and the tank floor and then reset the pump. If the rubber membrane is damaged, waste can then get into the switch and cause a problem. In this case, you will have to purchase a new rubber membrane and switch.
Saniflo Vibrates & Buzzes Loudly
If when flushing the toilet you hear a horrible vibrating noise, there’s probably something that has been lodged in the macerator blade. Turn off the Saniflo and remove the lid. If you see an obstruction straight away, remove it. If the foreign object is in the blade you can remove it using small pliers.

Also Worth Considering
his unit has failed three times so far. First event two weeks after being installed it failed. We had to remove the fuse to stop the machine from operating. We periodically pushed the fuse in to see if it would stop operating but to no avail. We arranged for an engineer then it started to work again and drained the waste away. Whilst the unit was turned off, the waste came up into the bath. Surely there should be a one way valve to prevent this from happening! It has not been a positive experience, the only reason we thought of putting a bathroom in was because of this unit. Now we think we have wasted our money
we installed a saniflo saniplus but have lived to regret it in the past 10 years or so we have replaced the unit - this will be the 3rd time. Their service dept. is rubbish - get your own plumber
I have had many Saniflos over the years and they do their job efficiently and reliably. The Saniplus is excellent and easy to fit and provides a great solution to a tricky problem, this particular model is a big improvement over the one it replaced. Saniflo are not the cheapest but in my mind they are the best. Plumbwold as a supplier were excellent, v competitive price and excellent service so 6 GOLD STARS! Highly recommend product and supplier.
