What Causes Saniflo Faults?

There are three main causes of almost all Saniflo faults:

1.)    Installation

Saniflo's installation rules are clear and frankly easy to follow. No professional installer should have any excuse why not to follow the installation recommendations to the letter. However break one or more of Saniflo's  installation rules and you are limiting the life of your Saniflo unit, risking frequent blockages and voiding the warranty.

2.)    Use

Saniflos can deal with human waste and basic toilet roll.

They cannot process make up wipes, toilet wipes, luxury fibre based toilet paper, sanitary pads, tampons, cotton wool or cotton buds. Flushing any of these items down the toilet will block, jam or damage the Saniflo macerator. Repairs needed due to flushing items you shouldn't are not covered by the Saniflo warranty and accounts for 80% of all Saniflo faults.

Policing the correct usage of the macerator is more difficult. Often macerators are fitted in guest bedrooms or cloakrooms. Informing every person or guest on its proper use can be an impossible task, especially in rental properties where the tenants have no real incentive to look after your plumbing installations. Chances are that every so often an unauthorised object will get flushed down the loo. As soon as the Saniflo starts to make a loud grinding noise, turn the power off at the wall and arrange for a Saniflo rescue service to remove the jam from the unit.

3.)    Maintenance

In hard water areas, like London, lime-scale eventually coats the inside of every plumbing appliance and facility, just look at the inside of your kettle for evidence of this. Unless internal limescale build up is dealt with it will eventually result in the failure of the macerator.

The answer is at hand in the form of Saniflo's own Saniscale a quarterly dose of Saniscale will keep the internal parts of your Saniflo lime-scale free for perfect functioning....until someone flushes a toy soldier of course!
