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
Having had a disaster with our macerator (it blew the electrics and was irrepairable) we received a bigger shock when the Saniflo engineer to us the charges for supplying and fitting a new one. I am a practical guy and so I though I would compare on line the cost of purchasing one and fitting it myself. Well Plumbworld you came up trumps, your price and speedy delivery was brilliant. I saved myself over £150, enjoyed the pleasure of a successful self installation and we delight in the quietness of the unit. Thank You Plumbworld for making and old couple happy!!!
The Saniflo Sanipro was easy to fit looks like a workhorse, and it not as loud as I thought it was going to be as I have heard lots of things about Saniflo Macerators. Plumbworld have been great with there competitive pricing and super fast delivery, I found all the product information that I needed on the website to help me make my purchases. A 5 star rating in my opinion....
Ordered to replace same thing which was 10+ years old (we only bought this house 4 months ago). Very simple to fit (Im crap at DIY normally). Works a treat. Seems quiet. Would happily buy Sanipro stuff again plus Plumbworld were by far the cheapest. Happily recommend both the product and the supplier!
