Limescale in the UK affects all types of plumbing products that have hard water flowing through them, Saniflo Macerators are no exception.
Saniflo Macerators need descaling at least twice a year for normal use but in areas of really hard water or heavy use then the recommended descaling frequency should be 3-4 times per year.
If you do not descale your Saniflo as recommended at some point the machine can fail to start or fails to stop or work intermittently, regular use of Saniflo Descaler will prevent this from happening.
Even if you have a water softener you are not immune from scale in a Saniflo, a macerator pump is a human waste machine and needs cleaning regularly.
Read our “How To Clean A Saniflo” instructions.
1, Turn off the power supply to your Saniflo, this may be a switch or you may have to pop the fuse out, this is normally located near the machine itself.
2, Pour 2.5 litres of Saniflo Descaler down in to the toilet bowl, if you have a larger Saniflo like Saniplus, Sanipro, Sanibest Pro, we recommend pouring the whole 5 litres down in to the toilet.
3, Leave to stand in the Saniflo Macerator for up to two hours for best results.
4, Switch on the Saniflo or pop the fuse back in, the macerator should run momentarily pumping out the Saniflo Descaler out. Once the macerator has stopped pumping, flush the toilet once, wait for the Macerator to stop, then flush once more. This rinses the Saniflo Macerator out and all the remains debris, that’s it your done.
5, Important, do not leave Saniflo Descaler in overnight (As some websites suggest) as it can damage your machine completely. Leaving the descaler in overnight can destroy and otherwise good machine, even the Saniflo Descaler instructions on the back of the bottle say the chemical should only be in the machine for a maximum of two hours.
There are alternatives you can buy but the Saniflo branded Descaler is the best one to buy. Below we have provided two links to Saniflo Descaler and an alternative brand.
