Macerating Toilet FAQs
What does a macerating toilet do, again?
A macerating toilet converts human waste into a fine slurry, which can be pumped up into a soil stack, against gravity. This is ideal for anyone who wants to add a bathroom to a basement or other small space.
Can I install the toilet myself?
Yes, upflush toilets are very easy to install. You just need some simple tools and a few hours on the weekend or so.
Can I adjust the water consumption rate?
On some macerating toilets, water consumption rate can be adjusted. Simply adjust the fill valve to increase or decrease it to the rate of choice.
Is there a warranty on the macerating toilets?
Yes, although it depends on the unique toilet you buy. Be sure to check with the manufacturer to understand your specific warranty.
Can I hook other utilities to my toilet?
Yes. Some maceration toilets can also support a shower or sink, which makes them ideal for a full bathroom system. Look for pumps and macerators designed to support these things.
How does a macerating toilet work?
Unlike a regular toilet that pushes the waste down the pipes (with the help of gravity), a macerating toilet “upflushes” or flushes up; hence, the alternative name upflush toilets, or sometimes, flush up toilet. Macerating toilets are outfitted with a grinder and pump combination that pushes waste to a unit behind the toilet in a large container lodged either in the wall or just behind the tank. The blades in the grinder then turn on, pulverize the waste, and pump it out of the unit through a pipe.
How long do macerating toilets last?
Saniflo macerating toilets can last about 10 to 15 years if not longer. With proper care and maintenance, macerating toilets can keep working hard for a long, long time.
