Common saniflo Macerator Problems
Saniflo Macerator Blockage
There can be many reasons for the saniflo macerator blockage but the most common one is when an outside object gets in contact with the motor. It can be anything from a tissue paper to a sanitary towel, when they are dropped into the macerator, the motor inside it tries to crush it but when it fails and can’t pump the water out it gets blocked. The second thing that gets the macerator blocked is very common. Handwashers or soaps that we use are made up synthetic material and because of the regular use they gather inside and forms a solid structure and stops the motor from spinning.
Vibration in macerator
Vibration in a macerator occurs when the motor inside it gets off-balanced which is mainly caused by towels or hand washers. Whenever a towel or a hand-washer gets stuck in the macerator motor it tries to slow down the motor speed and that’s where vibration occurs. To avoid this problem make sure you keep your macerator clean.
Pump making noise
Inside macerator pump there are blades that crush the waste and transform it into liquid. Whenever you hear noise coming out from the pump its because anything from outside has got in contact with the blades. Moreover, the pump will make noise because of the worn motor as well. In case of a worn motor, you should contact a professional saniflo engineer to get it fixed for you.
Macerator pump is buzzing
When ever a macerator pump is buzzing most of the times its electrical capacitor is blown but before buying a new one or calling a saniflo plumber make sure you check that there is no object inside the pump blades. However, if you don’t find any of these than most probably your motor has worn out and you will need to replace it with a new one.
Macerator pump starts on its own
Sometimes you may notice that the macerator pump starts on its own without waiting for the sensor even if it’s not in use. Its probably because of having leak somewhere or an overflowing toilet. In very rare cases saniflo plumber connects the boiler with a macerator pump and it causes this problem as well. To get rid of this your macerator pump will have to be inspected by a professional and get it fixed.
Macerator pump trips
If you ever notice the macerator pump tripping chances are that it’s worn out and you need to replace it with a new one but if the motor is in good condition and works fine after you change the electric power supply, in this case, you will have to contact an electric repair engineer to check the wiring in your home and see if there is any fault in it.
Q: How to deal and fix a Saniflo Macerator?
A: Well it is probably the most common problem faced by everyone, however, the first thing that you can try is to check is there is anything that blocks macerator, removes such type of materials from a water tank, if it doesn’t work then there is a problem within the waste pipe.
Q: How good is saniflo?
A: Saniflo is one of the best options for peoples with disabilities, and an opportunity for those who are ailing and in need of a toilet close by, However, these toilets can be easily installed in hard and tight places, as you don’t need to break concrete or any other hard place for installing saniflo and especially saniflo 48.
Q: Why is Saniflo Macerator not switching off?
A: If your saniflo macerator is not switching off even when you turn off the button it’s because of a loose connection or a worn-out microswitch. It’s better to change the microswitch along with membrane to get rid of this problem.
Q: What does Serviceteam recommend to maintain a saniflo toilet?
A: Well, saniflo does not require any special treatment or maintenance to keep it in good condition however to increase the lifespan of a macerator we do recommend to clean and descale your macerator twice in a week regularly, the purpose of saniflo descaler is to remove scale while preserving the internal working of your device.
