How It Compares To The Competition
It may seem difficult to install a brand new toilet or bathroom into your home. Not only may it cost a whole load of money to do so, but there may not be a local drainage pipe to fix your toilet too. While this used to be a problem, it is now easier than ever to install a toilet where you want to with a macerator. With the Saniflo UP you can install your toilet in the cupboard under the stairs, in your new converted loft or even the basement, the possibilities are endless!
Instead of attempting to fix a whole new plumbing system to your bathroom, Saniflo Up can make all your problems go away, with a cleaner, and certainly a whole lot quicker solution. The Saniflo Up can pump the waste water away from your toilet and away to a drainage pipe metres away. The process is fast, simple and makes minimal noise. When you first flush the toilet, the waste is broken down due to the powerful macerator and within only four seconds it is whizzed down and into the drainage pipe. As soon as this process is over, the device goes into a sleep mode, leaving it and the toilet clean and waste free.

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
I have a few flats on rent in one building however I had a room which was classed as wasted space. I could have turned it in to a studio flat but could not have a toilet fitted in the flat due to pipe work. I was advised to by a builder to fit Macerator. After a long thought & discussion I rang Plumbworld purchased a macerator and the builder fitted it. I was amazed a small pump,which pumped all the waste through the pipe which is 25 meters long. Excellent product small in dimension looks good and no obstructions as fits behind the toilet. Advice anyone to fit it if they have issues fitting a n . I would rate it + 5 stars. I am now receiving an in come of £375 a month by investing £230 for the pump and the builder £1200.00 to carry out the alterations.
I can not give enough praise to Plumb World, the old Macerator went down just 2 days ago the 19th Dec, i gave up hope of getting a replacement before Christmas, but good to their word the new one arrived just 2 days later the 21st Dec, we do have another toilet connected to the mains but with two women in the house and people visiting over the holiday it was good to get other one back in action, plus Plumb World were by far the cheapest and also no dilivery charge Thank you.
I'm no plumber, give me a piece of wood and I'm happy, but fixing this was so simple. Bought as a replacement for a 20yr old Saniflo that gave up the ghost. All the fixings were the same, no fiddly extensions or reducing pipes just plumb the existing pipes and away you go, simple. Plumbworld were better than their word as delivery was quicker than stated, price was the best. So from now on Plumbworld are firmly in my favourites.
