How To Install Flush Up Toilets

One of the leading providers of the flush up toilet solution is the company called SANIFLO. They have developed the system called SANIPLUS which can be used to install a complete bathroom in your basement bathroom and it even goes as deep as 15 feet below the ordinary sewer line. On top of that it can even be placed up to 150 feet away from the soil stack.

One of the great features of the SANIPLUS system is that it can handle all four fixtures. You can use it for a bathtub, the hand basin, a shower and of course the toilet and if that wasn’t all it is also environment friendly with a small 6 liters flush.

To briefly explain what the macerating system is, it is comprised of the motor, which drives the steel macerator pump and blades and the pressure chamber, which makes the unit start and stop. The normal duration for an operating cycle is about 10-20 seconds. It can however vary a little based on the discharge pipe run configuration. Again the SANIPLUS system is environment friendly with a low overall power consumption.

Besides getting rid of the toilet waste the system will also get rid of the waste water from the hand basin, the shower and even the bathtub. If you decide to have a bathtub installed you will need to construct a base using 2”x8”. Doing this will allow the P-trap installation and flow towards the pump unit because of gravity. Google
