SaniSHOWER: Gray Water Pump

SaniSHOWER Kit Includes
  1. SaniSHOWER self-contained gray water pump

SaniSHOWER Benefits

 

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:

  1. This SaniSHOWER gray water pump 
  2. Any Sink 
  3. Any Shower

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.

SaniSHOWER Installation

 

The SaniSHOWER is simplicity itself to install; there are just four connections.

  1. Drains from desired bathroom fixtures are connected to the SaniSHOWER pump (ie shower, and/or sink)
  2. The pump is connected to a vent system.
  3. The pump is connected to the drain pipe. 
  4. The pump is connected to the electrical supply. 

And you're done!

SaniSHOWER Function

 

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.  Electrical standard UL 788, CA:  Electrical standard CSA C22.2

    Use it in our nail salon. Best model we have found yet.

    We were putting a shower in a tight spot for our employees to take a quick shower if needed after work, and didn't need the toilet piece (we have separate bathrooms with no room for a shower install). This was a great solution!
    Ed from Alabama on Feb 25, 2013
    Very helpful and professional. Thanks, guys!
    Franklin D. from Tennessee on Feb 08, 2013
    We had to put a shower in a tight spot in a facility that wasn't designed for this, but it worked out great. The installation was a breeze and went a lot faster than I expected.

    love it, love it!
    Don R. from Indiana on Jan 22, 2013
    This made a complicated installation very simple. We had to put in a new outlet, but other than that the installation was painless.
    Jack S. from Illinois on Dec 20, 2012
    Customer support was awesome to help me understand if this was what I needed for my house. It came and works just as described

    After getting the sanishower, I decided to try to install it myself rather than paying someone to do it. I'm glad I did. Very easy install.
