An additional bathroom is always a welcome addition to any home. Whether you want to make use of extra space to create a new full bathroom, create a powder room, an extra bathroom, or an ensuite bathroom, Saniflo’s up flushing toilets is a brand you can trust to deliver what you need.
A Saniflo macerating toilet system saves you thousands of dollars in renovation, remodeling, or additions because it's easy to install. Additionally, upflush toilets use less water than traditional ones and can handle human waste and flushed objects like sanitary napkins and dental floss effortlessly. The main difference is in the Saniflo upflushing toilet system's discharge method, which comprises the macerator and the pump.
The macerator has a rotating blade that turns on automatically when flushing the toilet. The flushing water combined with the waste from the toilet bowl grinds the solids into a slurry. The pump then helps move the waste to the sewage system, holding tank, or septic tank.
The Saniflo macerating system can be installed by anyone, even those without plumbing experience, because it was designed to be simple. Most installation jobs can be done in a couple of days or less.
To install a Saniflo up flush toilet system, just follow these steps:
Get everything you need, like a Saniflo upflush toilet pump system, available water supply, discharge pipe, source of electricity with a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFI) breaker, and a venting source. Select the installation site and cut into the home's soil stack to install a Y-connector for the discharge pipes from the Saniflo system's macerator.
Next, connect the toilet tank to the water supply. Add an adaptor to the water line, screw in a tap, and connect. Hook the toilet to power a nearby electrical circuit, preferably a 15-amp. If your Saniflo toilet system of choice requires venting, connect the macerator pump to the home's vent system or just as long as the air can move in and out.
A valuable tip for hiding the macerating pump behind a wall to keep the bathroom looking neat is to install an extension pipe. However, please keep in mind that an extension pipe only works for SaniBEST, SaniPLUS, and SaniAccess units.
