Our expert engineers regularly share their experiences and solutions, offering a wealth of knowledge for both novice and seasoned Saniflo users.

One common issue that gets raised in our forum is the “Saniflo humming not pumping” problem.

Causes could range from a worn out capacitor, blocked blades or a jammed or worn out motor. Our detailed guide will help you troubleshoot and find a solution.

For a smoother Saniflo experience, we provide comprehensive “Saniflo do’s and don’ts” to help you avoid common mistakes that can lead to breakdowns. For example, while it may be tempting to flush anything down your Saniflo system, doing so can lead to problems such as blockages or mechanical damage. Sticking to the do’s and avoiding the don’ts will extend your Saniflo unit’s lifespan and performance.

Many users have faced “Saniflo problems noise” – an issue where the Saniflo system generates excessive or unusual noises. This could be due to several factors, such as a faulty motor, a blocked macerator, or even an improperly installed unit. Our forum posts delve into the causes and possible fixes for these noisy nuisances.

A “Saniflo blocked” issue is also a common topic on our forum. It’s a problem that could arise from flushing inappropriate materials down the system or due to a build-up of limescale in hard water areas. With the right knowledge and tools, it’s possible to unblock your Saniflo system and restore it to its normal functioning.

My Saniflo Toilet Macerator Is Blocked Up

If the water level is high in the toilet bowl, empty as much as you can in to a bucket and get the water level down to the bottom as water will leak out of the Saniflo and on to the floor and maybe through the ceiling if it is quite messy put as many towels around the macerator to soak up any waste water. If you have a problem in London or Hertfordshire, call for help

What to Do When Your Saniflo Stops

My Saniflo Has Cut Out Mid Cycle Whilst Emptying

If your Saniflo has cut out whilst it was working can be due to the thermal cut activating as too much hot water has run through and has overheated the motor. The motor will reactivate once it has cooled down, this is quite common when connected to hot water heaters, washing machines on hot washes or hot baths that are full. The result can make water leak out of the box from the air vent, do not use washing machines on hot washes of 90 degrees and turn the thermostats down on hot water heaters and finally let bathwater cool a little before emptying. The thermal cut out will activate sooner through wear and tear on an older pump. The thermal cut out will activate if the pump gets jammed too this is to prevent serious motor damage, if problem occurs turn the pump off at the wall.

Handling Waste Water Efficiently with Saniflo Systems

My Saniflo Leaks Out Of The Air Vent

On the newer Saniflos this can be to excessive use of bleach, it shrinks the rubber outlet inside the saniflo, when it is in operation water sprays towards the airvent and leaks out of the top, this part will need to be changed. The other reason and the most probable cause is the Saniflo is jam packed full of waste and the box needs cleaning.

My New Large Drum Washing Machine Is flooding out of the Saniflo

If you have just bought one of the latest modern washing machines with a large drum 9kg – 11kg, you are in the middle of your first wash and the machine starts to empty water, the Saniflo or Sanivite waste water pump kicks in, starts to pump water out, then if your macerator pump starts leaking water this is because either your pump has the wrong size pipework leading out of your water pump and is being restricted the pump then becomes overwhelmed with water and comes out wherever it can. You probably have 22mm diameter pipe, you need to get it changed to 33mm – inch and a quarter waste water pipe. if you already have that size pipe then your Saniflo needs servicing this means the box needs cleaning out and its best to install a new switch and membrane as the Saniflo is not starting quick enough to deal with the large amount of water.
