Saniflo Toilets: What You Need to Know

What is a Saniflo toilet system?

 

Saniflo is actually a brand name; it is the leading brand in up flush toilet systems. A Saniflo is normally installed in a domestic property where there is no mains drainage pipe available. This means you can have a toilet anywhere, without worrying about worrying about mains drainage; you could install a downstairs toilet under your stairs, create an ensuite bathroom or even install a toilet in your basement. Using a Saniflo minimises the cost and disruption involved in installation, and allows you much more freedom when redesigning your property.

A Saniflo macerator allows you to install a toilet up to 150 feet from your main drainage pipe.

 

How does a Saniflo toilet work?

 

A Saniflo up flush toilet is actually quite simple. When you flush the toilet a macerating device inside of the tank activates. Within four seconds the waste inside of the tank is completely pulverised. The waste material is then pumped into a septic or soil stack up to 150 feet away. The waste is flushed through a pipe that measures one inch in diameter so installation does not require major upheaval.

 

Is a Saniflo toilet environmentally friendly?

 

A Saniflo system uses much less water than a traditional flush mechanism. The system will last for more than 50,000 flushes and all grey pumps come with a 2 year warranty.

 

Is it Easy to Install a Saniflo toilet?
