The Sani3 is a system that is used to install a complete bathroom up to 15 feet below the sewer line, or even up to 150 feet away from a soil stack. It can handle the effluent from a toilet, sink, bathtub and shower.
The Sani3 is simplicity itself to install; there are just five connections.
The inside of the Sani3 comprises of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the stainless steel macerator blades and the pump.
When the flush is activated, the water flowing into the Sani3 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 Sani3 takes about 10 - 15 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
In addition to the toilet waste, the Sani3 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 wastewater from other sanitary fixtures is discharged into the Sani3 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 Sani3 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.
The design of this model consists of vibration absorbers which enable the reduction of operating sound by reducing the transmitted sounds from any location where such resonance transmission could occur. This new design reduces the operating sound of this pump by 10dB.
The Sani3 unit must be connected to our rear discharge toilet. This system uses much less water than a regular toilet as it only uses 1.28 USG (4.8 liters) of water per flush. Note: This toilet only works in combination with the Sani3.
The Sani3 has been certified to American and Canadian Standards. Macerating standard; US: CSA Certified & IAPMO (UPC) listed - ASME A112.3.4, CA: Macerating Standard CSA B45.9.
Round & Elongated Rear Discharge Toilets
Two style of toilets are available to purchase and install with your macerating unit.

SFA Saniflo introduced this accessory in order to ease the installation as this new addition made it simpler to hide the pump behind any finished wall. This Extension Pipe is used with the Sanitop, Saniplus and Sanibest products.
The 18” extension pipe was designed with the idea to reduce time when installing our macerators. It has an inner gasket which connects to the rear spigot of the toilet without any difficulty. Its sealed connection keeps water from seeping out once the toilet is flushed.
Its ease of installation is the reason why installers recommend this accessory for any Saniflo installation. When using the extension pipe, the toilet bowl should be raised 3/8 inch for additional gravity flow toward the macerator box.
Our macerators and gray water pumps are designed for various types of applications. Therefore, they are exposed to different situations such as power failures, occasional abuse, or build-ups of limescale deposits in older units (if not regularly descaled) which can cause a surcharge of water in the unit.
SFA Saniflo introduces the Sanialarm!
The Sanialarm has a level pressure switch that triggers an alarm fixed on the top of the unit if the volume of water exceeds the maximum allowed level. The alarm emits a continuous 80dB warning sound until it is switched off or the problem is rectified.
The Sanialarm is battery operated and can be installed on most models* in the Saniflo range, including Saniplus and Sanivite pumps. It has been designed to be installed on new or existing Saniflo installations as it is quickly fitted onto the lid of the Saniflo unit.
* Suitable for use with Saniplus, Sanibest, Sanigrind, Sanipack and Sanivite.
Regular descaling with specially formulated Saniflo descaler will prolong the unit's life and maintain optimum performance. It is specifically created for use with Saniflo products and laboratory formulated with phosphoric acid. Regular usage prolongs unit life and maintains efficiency and it is harmless to septic tank operation.
