Saniflo SaniACCESS3 Macerating Pump with Quiet Motor
Type: Macerating Pump
- Pumps vertically up to 15 ft
- Connects a toilet, sink, shower and/or bath
- Easy Installation
Specifications & Installation Manual:
The SaniACCESS3 is simplicity itself to install; there are just four connections.
- The macerator/pump is connected to the spigot of a horizontal rear discharge toilet.
- The toilet tank is connected to the water supply.
- The macerator/pump is connected to the small diameter discharge pipe work.
- The macerator/pump is connected to the electrical supply.
The Saniflo SaniACCESS3 Macerating Pump takes care of everything. A specially designed pressure chamber on the inside starts the motor at every flush and stops it when the water and waste levels recede, until another flush arises. The motor drives the macerator blades and pump to churn the waste and move it out of the unit.
Consistent and Reliable
The pump is reliable as it receives waste from the sink, bathtub, shower and toilet via two inlets, improving the drainage speed. The discharge elbow rotates to fit a variety of sanitary fixtures and has a non-return valve that prevents waste from flowing back into the unit. Each operating cycle lasts between 10 and 15 seconds, depending on the unit configuration.
This unit utilizes less water and power than a standard toilet, is easy to install and does not cause damage to your flooring.
The Saniflo SaniACCESS3 Macerating Pump is built to creating a quiet operating environment. It has vibration absorbers that reduce the transmission of sound and an oil-filled enclosure around the motor absorbs a considerable amount of noise.

How It Works:
When the flush is activated, the water flowing into the SaniACCESS3 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 common spindle/shaft drives the impeller and the macerator blades. The moving parts therefore are kept to an absolute minimum. Water and organic waste matter enter the chamber and are reduced to slurry as the macerator blades rotate at 3600 RPM. The centrifugal force causes the reduced solids to be ejected through a grill into the container where it is picked up by the impeller pump mounted beneath the motor. The unit pumps the effluent upward to 15 feet and/or 150 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water level in the container goes down, the micro switch deactivates the unit until the flush is activated again. A normal operating cycle for SaniACCESS3 takes about 10 - 15 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
In addition to the toilet waste, the SaniACCESS3 will also discharge gray water from a variety of other sanitary fixtures such as: a sink, a bathtub, a shower and a urinal. 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 SaniACCESS3 via two 2-inch inlets on either side of the housing. Either one or both inlets can be used as required. The discharge elbow on top of the SaniACCESS3 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. It is also highly recommended for the macerator/pump to be connected to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
Note: This toilet only works in combination with Saniflo systems.
