Saniflo Macerating Upflush Toilet includes SaniPLUS macerating bathroom pump white toilet bowl (standard), white toilet tank. The Saniflo Macerating toilet is called Bathroom anywhere because this toilet system can be used in locations for example in a basement where a standard flush toilet is impractical.
This toilet system is quite different to most standard toilets because unlike conventional flushing system that flushes directly into the drainage system it uses up a flush mechanism that pumps the waste upwards after breaking it down into simpler molecules by a macerator.
This toilet system does not require a separate effluent pump for each water-based device in the bathroom. Because Saniflo up flush toilet can discharge gray water from a sink, a bathtub, a shower, a urinal and other sanitary fixtures with only modifications to the connections making it a Bathroom anywhere toilet.
This means this is the ideal unit for installing a bathroom in a basement, guest home or other areas of a property that is not connected to the main sewer line. The toilet is able to pump effluent upward to 15 feet and/or 150 feet horizontally.
You need a plumber to install this Bathroom anywhere toilet. To install this, four connections are required. These are: 1) the macerator/pump connects to the spigot of a horizontal rear discharge toilet 2) the toilet tank is connected to the water supply 3) the macerator/pump connects to the PVC discharge pipe and 4) the macerator/pump connects to its power supply. The toilet has high-efficiency cleaning system because it uses a mechanism to grind and blend the human’s solid waste into slurry one for easy moving to drain pipe.
But how this Bathroom anywhere works? At the heart of this toilet is a pressure chamber which starts and stops the unit and the motor which drives the stainless steel macerator blades and the pump. Once the flush button is pressed, the toilet fills itself with a set volume of water. After that water and organic waste, matter enters the chamber and are reduced to slurry as the macerator blades rotate at 3600 rpm.
At the same time, the impeller picks up all the grains and pumps into the discharge line. Once the motor turns off the system stops pumping out the waste, and the non-return valve closes not allowing the granular waste is coming back into the system. This concludes complete operation of the system.
The Saniflo Macerating Upflush Toilet that is more commonly known as Bathroom anywhere should not be compared to a standard toilet. Because this toilet is designed for use under certain circumstances where setting up a standard toilet is either impractical or not cost effective due to the needs of gravity fed waste pipe. It flushes only 1.6 gallons per flush but effectively removes all waste. The only problem that needs to address here is the installation of this Bathroom anywhere is more complex than with a standard flush toilet.
In this macerating toilet reviews, we have tried to cover all the aspects of the toilet like what it includes, how it works and the drawback as well. Finally, this toilet is an excellent option if you do not have much space or distance from the main waste pipe is a problem.
