How it Compares To The Competition
Have you ever wanted to install a toilet, washbasin or shower but not had the right plumbing in the right room to manage it? With the Sanislimthis is a problem of the past! They’re designed to take waste all the waste from a small bathroom and pump this to the sewage network.
The beauty of this particular appliance is that it’s only 145mm deep making it ideal for installation behind a toilet. It also features inlets on either side of the unit so that a shower or a washbasin can also be fitted without any issues.
The Sanislim is ideal for installation in a basement or loft conversion, or in any home improvement situation where large bore pipework isn’t practical.
The unit pumps waste away through 22mm small-bore pipework, this can be up to 4 metres vertically or up to 40 metres horizontally (or a lesser combination of both).

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
My trusted Saniflo engineer advised we needed a new unit after the old one conked our after about 10 years Service. Apparently Saniflo had redesigned the standard unit so it was a few millimetres bigger in places and so would not fit the bespoke housing we have. So we needed to get the new slimline model. So far so good but check back in 10 years time. Saniflo why tinker with the size? Crazy
Excellent fast service and very reasonable price from Plumbworld for this Saniflo item which is essential for a toilet and bathroom where the waste has to be pumped away. Although this unit is smaller than the standard size, (we did not have enough space for a full size Macerater), it still copes easily with a large cistern full of water, and the toilet waste, easily and quietly.
I have had a Sanislim fitted recently to service a small vanity basin and a toilet in a closet on the ground floor. I am about to have a knee operation and stairs to the first floor bathroom could present a hazard throughout the day. The Sanislim works perfectly with little noise. Better for visitors also. I wish I had done this sooner.
