How it Compares To The Competition
The Sanishower+ is used to take waste water away from a shower and a wash basin. This great product will pump the waste water into a sewage pipe that is not local to the shower or wash basin. The Sanishower+ can be installed effortlessly next to a shower tray giving easy access for maintenance. It is easily capable of coping with the volume of water from a standard electric shower or a gravity mixer shower. This pump benefits from two inlets, meaning that a wash basin can be added to it along with the shower. This product is the ideal choice if you wish to install a shower and basin in a converted basement or loft.

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
Fitted the pump in less than two hours. There are better fitting instructions online than in the box. It comes with all the fittings and fixtures needed to connect (40mm intake). The rubber boots allow different size outlets to be used easily. Overall the pump is very quiet and I only hear it over the noise of a shower because I know it is there. Definitely a lot better than the old macerator pumps.
A brilliant pump, efficient, very very quiet, inexpensive and can be fitted by the average DIYer. Ideal for many applications where drainage piping is not easily accessible or hasn't sufficient scope for water to drain, naturally. A great product sold by Plumbworld with good sales advice and no delivery charge. Arrived in just 24 hours +.
Used for ensuite shower where it was impossible to put normal drainage. Very easy to fit. Pump is very quiet. Only minor problem was a cap was missing but Plumbworld sorted this out very promptly so no worries!
