What Is A Saniflo System?
Saniflo systems are an innovative solution for fitting sanitary fixtures, such as toilets, sinks, showers, and dishwashers, where it is impossible to directly connect them to the existing soil pipe that runs to the main sewer line.
Traditionally, sanitary fixtures were located near the soil pipe to ensure easy wastewater disposal via flushing and gravity.
While this traditional system certainly works well, it severely limits options regarding the location of toilet installations, bathtubs, showers, basins, and washing machines.
A Saniflo system uses maceration technology to grind waste before pumping it directly into the sewer system through small-diameter pipes.
This makes it possible to install sanitary fixtures just about anywhere – from bathrooms and basements to cupboards – without direct access to a soil pipe.
Therefore Saniflos can be incredibly useful if you need an additional bathroom suite or even just an extra Toilet installed somewhere unconventional in your home.
Once installed, a Saniflo system will provide up to 15 years of reliable use with minimal maintenance requirements.
To ensure efficient operation, we recommend avoiding flushing items down the toilet, like baby wipes or sanitary products, which can cause clogs and potential damage over time—only flush waste and toilet paper.
It is also important not to use bleach when cleaning Saniflos as it can cause corrosion within the system.
Finally, because Southend is a hard water area, we recommend descaling your Saniflo around three or four times yearly to prevent limescale build-up.
When you choose TM Hughes & Son for your Saniflo installation, you can rest assured that our engineers will undertake the work swiftly yet efficiently while remaining tidy.
The installation time required varies depending on factors such as the size of the installation, location and scope of the work.
Installation usually takes anything from just a few hours to an entire day.
