How it Compares To The Competition
Maybe you want to install a bathroom into your converted loft or in your unused understairs cupboard. Wherever you want to install your new bathroom, it is now possible to do so, with the Saniflo Sanitop Up. Instead of going through all the hassle of installing new pipework into your brand-new bathroom, the Sanitop Up is here to help. It's the cleaner, quicker and more effective drainage system, designed for when there is no local drainage pipe. This macerator will pump your waste to the nearest drainage pipe, leaving your toilet looking spotless.
The Saniflo Sanitop is very similar to the original Saniflo as it essentially has all the same functions, however, it allows the connection of a WC and a Wash basin to a single pump, providing efficiency and practicality. The powerful macerator within the product allows waste to be moved up to 5m vertically and an impressive 100m horizontally.
This new design has a removable lid.

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.
Saniflo Do Not Accept Returns
If your Saniflo macerator is faulty then you will need to call out an approved Saniflo engineer. Saniflo will not accept returned product for hygiene reasons and require any fault to be verified on site by the engineer. Engineers aim to be with you in 48 hours although longer delays are possible
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
Purchased to replace an old (19 years old so no complaints) Sanitop but when received found that it was not directly interchangeable, old version had a low level input. Returned and refunded with no problem. The Sanipro model did the job.
Bought as a replacement for one of my customers old Saniflo's which had just given up after 9 years service. The new model fitted like a dream and seems to be a lot more quiet than the previous model. I like the fact that it now comes with an access panel on the top for cleaning out rather than having to remove the whole top. Plumb World offer the best prices and a very speedy delivery service, I will definitely be using them again.
I ordered the Saniflo for a small en-suite I was fitting in an awkward place. It arrived in a couple of days as promised and was really well wrapped (to avoid damage). Once fitted, i was surprised at how quiet it was during operation. It was also very well priced and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend plumbworld for a brilliant service. Cheers
