The SaniSHOWER is a
system that is used to install a shower and sink up to 12 feet below the sewer
line, or even up to 100 feet away from a soil stack. The SaniSHOWER system is
designed to connect with:
The SaniSHOWER is a small gray water pump that may be used to pump waste water
away from a shower, sink, bar sink, or other fixture. The SaniSHOWER is small enough to fit
underneath a raised shower base.
Alternatively, it can be placed behind a wall or beside a shower. The SaniSHOWER will pump wastewater up to 12
feet in height and/or 100 feet away from a soil stack.
The SaniSHOWER is
simplicity itself to install; there are just four connections.
And you're done!
The inside of the SaniSHOWER
is comprised of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the
motor, which drives the pump. When the water enters
the SaniSHOWER, it activates a micro switch in the pressure chamber, which in
turn starts the motor. The motor is
sealed for life in an oil filled enclosure.
A spindle/shaft drives the impeller and therefore the moving parts are
kept to an absolute minimum. Water
enters the chamber and is pumped away into the sanitary sewer.
The unit pumps the
effluent upward to 12 feet and/or 100 feet horizontally (with gravity
fall). Once the water is discharged and
the water level in the container goes down, the micro switch deactivates the
unit until water enters the unit again.
A normal operating cycle for the SaniSHOWER can be as short as 2 - 10
seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption
is therefore minimal.
In addition to sinks,
the SaniSHOWER will also accept and discharge the waste water from a variety of
other sanitary fixtures such as: a shower, a urinal, etc. When adding a shower, a base will have to be
constructed. This base should be made
out of a 2" x 6" (minimum) or 2” x 8” (recommended) on edge, to allow
for the installation of a P-trap and the required 1/4”per foot gravity flow
towards the pump unit.
The discharge elbow on
the side of the SaniSHOWER can be rotated 360 degrees to fit any type of
installation required. A non-return
valve, which comes already assembled on the discharge elbow, prevents back flow
into the unit.
This unit has been
designed with a vent output on the side of the unit. All plumbing codes require connection to a
vent system. Please note that the vent
system should be a two-way air vent. It
is also highly recommended for the gray water pump to be connected to a Ground
Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
The SaniSHOWER is small
enough to fit comfortably inside a kitchen cabinet or vanity or even under a
raised shower base.
The SaniSHOWER has been
certified to American and Canadian Standards.
