How does a SANIFLO system work?
You’re wondering how exactly you can add a toilet under the stairs, in a remote building or otherwise seemingly impossible location without easy direct access to a main outflow pipe?
The answer lies in the combination of macerating and pumping technology used in SANIFLO units.
To fully understand how SANIFLO units work, you need to look at the two steps involved.
Step 1 – Macerating Technology
To ‘macerate’ something means to soften it and churn it up. This makes it easier to dispose of, and this is the key principle on which all SANIFLO units for toilets are based.
When you flush a toilet with a SANIFLO macerator pump attached, the waste is first moved into the macerator unit. It is met there by a rotating cutting blade that moves at incredible speed, to pound solid waste and material like toilet paper into a liquid effluent.
Step 2 – Pumping Technology
The pumping technology in your SANIFLO unit now takes care of the liquid to be disposed of and all SANIFLO units pump a lot of power into a small package. That pumping power can effortlessly expel the liquid waste through a one-inch pipe for 50 metres!
