The SaniVITE is a system that is used to install a kitchen or
laundry room up to 16 feet below the
sewer line, or even up to 150 feet away from a soil stack. The SaniVITE system is
designed to connect with:
The SaniVITE is simplicity itself to install; there are just four connections.
The inside of
the SaniVITE is comprised of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the
unit, and the motor, which drives the pump.
When the water
enters the Sanivite, 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 16 feet and/or 150 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 Sanivite can be as short as 2 - 10
seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption
is therefore minimal.
In addition to
a sink, the SaniVITE will also accept and discharge the waste water from a
variety of other sanitary fixtures such as: a shower, a bathtub, a urinal and a
whirlpool. When adding a bathtub or
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 waste water
from other sanitary fixtures is discharged into the SaniVITE via two 1-1/2 inch
inlets, on either side of the housing and an additional inlet on the top of the
unit. The discharge elbow on top of the
Sanivite can be turned either to the left, to the right, or towards the back,
depending on the discharge installation.
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 connection on the lid. All plumbing codes require connection to a
vent system. Please note that the vent
system should be a two-way air vent. The
use of mechanical vents, air admittance valves or similar devices are not
permitted as these are considered one-way air vent systems.
The SaniVITE is small enough to fit comfortably inside a kitchen cabinet or vanity or inside the overhang of a whirlpool. It is also
highly recommended for the gray water pump to be connected to a Ground Fault
Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
The SaniVITE has been certified to American and Canadian Standards. Electrical standard UL 788, CA: Electrical standard CSA C22.2
