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.
Ideally suited to a kitchen or utility room, the Sanivite+ powerful pump has four inlets for connection to domestic sinks and appliances. With compact dimensions, Sanivite+ can be concealed in a kitchen unit or behind a demountable panel to give access for servicing. This model is designed to plough through even the toughest of waste from the kitchen or utility room. Sanvite+ is constructed from a high-tech pressure chamber that will stop and start the unit and the motor, which then activates the pump. When the water from your appliances enters the Sanvite+, it starts up the motor within the chamber, this then drives the blades which mash up the waste into pure liquid and eventually is pumped into a drainage system.

Also Worth Considering
Needed to pump not just sink waste but a dishwasher which was adjacent to the sink.. I had a rise of approximately 2.7meters then a gravity fall for approximately 7meters.. after putting in minimal bends and appropriate ridding points I turned on the sanivite, let the bowl of the sink fill up, let the plug out and away the water went, perfectly and to be fair surprisingly quietly... well chuffed, highly recommend
This product is used in our utility room. It is brilliant easy to fit , very quiet so if you did use it in your home you would not hear it. Now I have fitted this my washing is bone dry and I am very happy. I would recommend this pump having had friends bought other brands and suffered difficulties this was is fantastic.
I ordered this item by phone,spoke to a very friendly helpful lady who assured me it would arrive next day. Was notified of the time of delivery and it came at that exact time,no hanging around all day as with a lot of other companies. Excellent service and well satisfied with the product.
