Saniflo Sanipack$ 1,029.95
The Saniflo SaniPACK macerating upflush toilet is the ideal unit for a full bathroom addition in your home, office, or rental space. Capable of pumping vertically up to 9 feet, this unit connects wall-hung toilets, sinks, and showers and moves waste water up to 9 vertical feet and 100 horizontal feet. Available options include the SaniALARM, which warns if the water in the macerator reaches dangerously high levels, and a descaler, which cleans and removes any hard water deposits that may be present in the macerator.
Designed to be easy to connect, this Saniflo product only features four connections: a connection from the macerator to the discharge pipe, the toilet tank to the water supply, the pump to the small diameter discharge pipe, and the pump to the electrical supply. Because of this simplicity, adding this unit to your home only requires a few hours and some basic tools. You won’t need to hire a plumber or spend time and money tearing up your existing bathroom.

Type: Macerating Upflush Toilet
- Pumps vertically up to 9 ft
Connects a wall hung toilet, sink and shower
The SaniPACK is simple itself to install; there are just four connections.
- The macerator is connected to the discharge pipe coming from a wall-hung toilet
- The toilet tank is connected to the water supply
- The macerator is connected to the small diameter discharge pipe work
- The macerator is connected to the electrical supply
How It Works:
The inside of the SaniPACK consists of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the stainless steel macerator blades.
When the flush is activated, the water flowing into the device activates a micro switch in the pressure chamber, which in turn starts the motor. The motor is sealed for life in an oil-filled enclosure. A common spindle/shaft drives the impeller and the macerator blades. The moving parts therefore are kept to an absolute minimum. Water and organic waste matter enter the chamber and are reduced to slurry as the macerator blades rotate at 3600 RPM. The centrifugal force causes the reduced solids to be ejected through a grill into the container where they are picked up by the impeller pump mounted beneath the motor.
The unit pumps the effluent upward to 9 feet and/or 100 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the micro switch deactivates the unit until the flush is activated again. A normal operating cycle for SaniPACK takes about 7-9 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
In addition to the toilet waste, the SaniPACK will also discharge gray water from a variety of other sanitary fixtures, such as a sink, a shower and a urinal. When adding a shower, a base will have to be constructed. This base should be 2" x 6" (minimum) or 2" x 8" (recommended) on edge, to allow for the installation of a P-trap and the required 1/4" per foot gravity flow towards the pump unit.
The waste water from other sanitary fixtures is discharged into the SaniPACK via two 1-1/2 inch inlets on either side of the housing. Either one or both inlets can be used as required. The discharge elbow on top can be turned either to the left, to the right, or towards the back, depending on the discharge installation. A non-return valve, which comes already assembled on the discharge elbow, prevents backflow into the unit.
This unit has been designed with a vent connection on the lid. All plumbing codes require connection to a vent system.
Please note that the vent system should be a two-way air vent. The use of mechanical vents, air admittance valves or similar devices are not permitted as these are considered one-way air vent systems.
It is also highly recommended for the macerator/pump to be connected to a ground fault interrupter (GFI) circuit.
The SaniPACK is designed to be used with a toilet that is connected to a wall. The depth of the case allows for this pump to be installed within the wall. Since the reservoir, the macerating pump and the pipes are hidden from view, this type of installation gives you the lean and clean look of a European bathroom.
Plumbing Code Certified:
The SaniPACK has been certified to American and Canadian standards. Macerating standard; US: CSA Certified & IAPMO (UPC) listed - ASME A112.3.4, CA: Macerating Standard CSA B45.9.
