SaniFlo System: How It Works
With the amazing SaniFlo systems, you can install a bathroom, kitchen or laundry room almost anywhere with minimal construction! Here is a quick video of how it all works:
Upflush Toilet Advantages
You can put in a new toilet or full bathroom anywhere from attic to basement with the SaniFlo macerating/pump system. And unlike other systems which need a minimum of 30" clearance and accessibility at all times for servicing, with SaniFlo you only need the space of a regular toilet and no servicing!
Your labor costs are a fraction of traditional sewage tank/lift pump installations. Your floors stay intact. No breaking. No mess. No plumbers coming in for weeks with the house ripped apart.
With SaniFlo, you can have a whole new bathroom in less than one day! Since you only need a small diameter pipe, which can be run virtually anywhere, in 6-8 hours you're all set.
The units can also be moved at a later time. Have a temporary need and your situation changes? Moving it to another location is no problem since its 'footprint' is rather small. You can easily take it out and move it leaving only 4 tiny holes.
If you’ve ever heard of Saniflo, you know it’s the gold standard in quality and reliability.
Offering a wide selection of macerators including upflush toilets, grey water pumps, grinder pumps, marine and rv toilets, and condensate units, Saniflo is go-to for households that want to add an extra bathroom but aren’t interested in laying expensive plumbing to facilitate it.
Eco-friendly, affordable, and simple to install, Saniflo offers simplicity, accessibility, and quality in one elegant package.
But what makes Saniflo so unique, and why should you consider purchasing one of these units for your home?
Here’s a brief overview of Saniflo as a whole:
The History of the Saniflo
SFA Saniflo is more than 50 years old. Borne from the mission to make adding an additional bathroom simple and economical, “Saniflo” was a pioneer in the plight to allow any homeowner, anywhere to add the kitchen, bathroom, and utility facilities they want, wherever they want.
The biggest factor that allowed Saniflo to emerge as a leader in simple bathroom installs was its invention of the now-famous macerating toilet system. Unlike traditional toilets, which discharge gravitationally, Saniflo macerating units discharge out the back of the toilet.
The discharge then lands in a macerator, which grinds the sewage into a fine slurry, which can then be pumped upward, then into the home’s existing stack. Saniflo’s macerating units are affordable and easy to install and don’t require a homeowner to rip up their flooring or install expensive plumbing to make the unit work. Our customers routinely report saving over $9,000 by leveraging the Saniflo upflush system.
In addition to convenience, Saniflo is known for its durability, quality, and advanced technology. All of Saniflo’s many products comply with strict approval processes and advanced technical requirements, so they are some of the best units you can introduce into your home, business, or rental building.
In addition to producing macerators and pumps specifically for upflush toilet systems, Saniflo also specializes in a wide assortment of grey water pumps and grinder pumps, as well as condensate removal. The full line of pumps makes it easy to install something simple like a wet bar, or even run your entire home on a
