How does a macerator toilet work?

A macerator toilet disposes of waste in a different way to a normal toilet. When you flush a macerator toilet the waste is moved into the macerator unit instead of going directly down the drain.  Once the waste level within the macerator unit reaches a certain level, a micro-switch is activated. A fast rotating blade reduces any solids to liquid. The liquid is then pumped to your usual waste pipe.

Why choose a macerator toilet?

A macerator toilet is often used in extensions or other places where there is no mains drainage pipe. With a macerator toilet you can install a toilet up to 150 feet from the main drainage pipe in a property.

What if a macerator toilet gets blocked?

Can you plunge a macerator toilet?

If you have a blockage with your Saniflo or macerator toilet it’s not as simple as using a plunger to unblock it. Using a plunger on a macerator toilet could damage the macerator system so if there is a blockage it will need to be taken apart and cleaned.

Is a macerator toilet environmentally friendly?

A macerator toilet uses a lot less water than a traditional toilet, and will usually last around fifty thousand flushes before any parts need to be replaced so it can be considered to be more environmentally friendly than a traditional toilet.
