Welcome to TM Hughes & Son. We install and repair Saniflo systems in Grays and the surrounding areas.
What is a Saniflo System?
Saniflo systems, often called macerator pumps or up-flush toilets, are groundbreaking solutions in plumbing.
They solve the challenge of adding bathroom fixtures to parts of a property where traditional plumbing might be problematic.
The Saniflo System allows you to install a sink, toilet, shower, or water-fed appliance anywhere in your home.
How Saniflo Works
A Saniflo system comprises a macerator pump, which grinds waste from a toilet, shower, or sink into a fine slurry.
This slurry is then pumped through a small-diameter pipe to the existing sewage system or septic tank.
The grinding and pumping action allows the waste to travel upwards or horizontally over long distances, allowing plumbing installations below or far from the main waste line.
Suitable Home Areas For Saniflo Installations
- Basements: Often positioned below the sewage line, these spaces benefit from Saniflo systems, allowing homeowners to add bathrooms or kitchenettes.
- Home Additions and Conversions: For properties expanding upwards with loft conversions or outwards with extensions.
- Remote Bathrooms: If you’re considering adding a bathroom far from the main sewage line, like in a garden office or other outbuilding.
- Commercial Spaces: Businesses looking to retrofit bathrooms or kitchens, especially in older buildings or unconventional spaces.
Why Opt for Saniflo Installation?
Installing a Saniflo system provides many advantages, especially for property owners facing plumbing challenges or those seeking a more flexible solution.
- Compact Design: Saniflo units easily fit behind a toilet or sink.
- Adaptability: The system allows homeowners to convert almost any room into a bathroom, kitchen, or utility room without requiring large spaces for plumbing infrastructure.
- Reduced Plumbing Work: Traditional plumbing might require digging, rerouting, or extensive renovation. Saniflo minimises the need for such extensive work, leading to potential cost savings.
- Energy Efficiency: Modern Saniflo systems are designed to be energy-efficient, further reducing long-term costs.
- Versatility: From basements to lofts and even external structures like garden offices, Saniflo systems can be installed almost anywhere.
- Tailored Solutions: Different models cater to specific needs, including a full bathroom suite, a single toilet, or a kitchen sink. This ensures homeowners get a solution tailored to their exact requirements.
Quick And Non-Disruptive Installation Process
- Speedy Installation: A qualified installer, like TM Hughes & Son, can often set up a Saniflo system in under a day.
- Minimal Disruption: Given the reduced need for extensive plumbing work, homeowners won’t have to deal with prolonged building noise, dust, and inconvenience.
Increase Property Value
- Added Convenience: Additional bathrooms or utility rooms enhance the functionality of a home.
- Attractive to Buyers: Homes with more facilities, especially in unconventional spaces, appeal more to potential buyers, potentially increasing the property’s market value.
