A blocked or overflowing macerator, is usually caused by a foreign object and can often cause the motor to become jammed, resulting in it being unable to pump water through the system and flush.
Limescale is another, not so common, cause of a blockage. If you live in a hard water area we suggest that you descale your system at least twice a year to minimise limescale build up.
If your system is making noises, vibrating, won’t turn on or off, is leaking or has pump problems, it might be time to call in an expert who can professionally diagnose the problem and offer expert advice on how to ensure that it doesn’t happen again in the future.
If your existing system is very old, or beyond repair, we can offer new installations at very competitive prices.
How does a Saniflo work
The Saniflo macerates and breaks up toilet paper and human waste with a blade. The blade spins around and liquifies the waste whilst breaking it up. The water flushing into the system mixes with the waste and the pump then forces the waste through drainage pipes into the local soil pipe or drainage system.
Essentially, the waste is pumped by the Saniflo unit into the nearest soil pipe. For example, if you have a loft extension and your bathroom is on the opposite side of the house to the soil stack, you would need a Saniflo Unit to pump the water and waste across the house to the soil stack.
A Saniflo unit is usually installed when there is a distance between the toilet, shower, basin or bath and the soil stack.

With Saniflo you can turn a small space into an extra bathroom or toilet where traditional gravity flow system plumbing might not be possible.
