Saniflo’s now come with an extended guarantee of up to 5 years and we offer a yearly service.
By carrying out regular servicing on your Saniflo / Macerator / Electric Toilet you can preserve the life of your unit preventing scaling issues and unwanted breakdowns.
Unfortunately breakdowns occur because some units are misused or incorrectly installed meaning they don’t last as long as they are designed to.
This photo shows an incorrectly installed macerator after a plumber installed bends with sharp angles causing repeated blockages.
Anytime Plumbing Services plumbing advice Top Tip number 1: Remember whatever you put in the toilet pan goes into the macerator pump
Anytime Plumbing Services plumbing advice for Saniflo’s – Do’s and Don’ts
Don’t use quilted toilet paper
Don’t use wipes
Don’t use thick bleach
Don’t put lady products down a toilet pan connected to a Saniflo
Don’t box in a Saniflo unit
Don’t put kitchen roll down a Saniflo – (obvious but when there is a shortage of toilet paper people are putting anything they can find down the pan).
Do Service the unit once a year
Do use Saniflo descaling solution- this is a disinfectant to clean the toilet
Do use thin toilet roll which dissolves well
Do consider installing a water softener to protect the parts- (we can help with that)
Do check the outlet pipe is plastic this should not be copper pipe
Do check the knuckle bends are 45 degrees not 90 degree bends all the way to the soil stack
Do check the unit is wired via an unswitched fixed wiring connector with a 5 amp fuse.
Do ensure the unit is easily accessible and removable in the event of maintenance being required
Do put a warning poem or sign up-
Anytime Plumbing services favourite Saniflo poem:
There was an electric loo
That only ate piddle and poo
Tampons and towels
Blocked up its bowels
And the damage cost a grand to undo!
Anytime Plumbing Services plumbing advice Top Tip number 2: Use a Saniflo toilet for number ones and use a conventional toilet for number twos
Anytime Plumbing Services plumbing advice Top Tip number 3: Indications of a faulty Saniflo or macerator unit
Saniflo or macerator coming on by themselves intermittently
Louder than usual
Stays on for longer than usual after you flush
The unit hums- this means it is blocked and when you flush the toilet stays full up
