The Sanibest Pro is a system that is used to install a complete bathroom up to 25 feet below the sewer line, or even up to 150 feet away from a soil stack. The Sanibest Pro can handle the effluent from a toilet, sink, bathtub, shower and washing machine (indirect via laundry tub).
While most of our pump range is shredders/macerators, the Sanibest Pro incorporates an actual grinder system. The Sanibest Pro is ideal for situations where you do not control the use of it (i.e. rental unit, offices, warehouses, etc). The Sanibest Pro is designed to deal with sanitary articles that may have been accidentally flushed down the toilet; such articles may consist of sanitary napkins, q-tips, etc.
The Sanibest Pro is equipped with a service panel atop the unit which allows fast and easy access to the internal components such as the micro switch and capacitor.
Note: In commercial installations, plumbing codes require an elongated bowl to be installed with this system.
The Sanibest Pro is simplicity itself to install; there are just five connections:
The inside of the Sanibest Pro comprises of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the stainless steel cutting blade and the pump. When the flush is activated, the water flowing into the Sanibest Pro 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 reduced solids are picked up at the bottom and the impeller mounted beneath the motor ejects the waste. The unit pumps the effluent upward to 25 feet and/or 150 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water level in the container goes down, the micro switch deactivates. A normal operating cycle for the Sanibest Pro takes about 10 - 15 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration.
In addition, the Sanibest Pro will also discharge gray water from a variety of other sanitary fixtures such as: a sink, a bath/shower, a urinal and even a washing machine (indirect connection). When adding a bathtub/shower, a base will have to be constructed. This base should be raised by 6” (minimum) or 8” (recommended), allowing 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 Sanibest Pro via two 2-inch inlets on either side of the housing. The discharge elbow on top of the Sanibest Pro can be rotated 360 degrees depending on the discharge installation. A non-return valve (included in the assembly) 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 vent, air admittance valve or similar device is not permitted as these are considered one-way air vent systems.
The Sanibest Pro 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 litres) of water per flush.
It is highly recommended for the macerator/pump to be connected to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
The Sanibest Pro 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.
All items may be purchased separately. However, the Sanibest works as a system and therefore a toilet bowl, toilet tank and the macerating unit need to be purchased. An optional extension pipe is available for the pump to be installed behind the wall. No toilet seat, cabinets, shower nor bathtub are included.
Round & Elongated Rear Discharge Toilets
Two style of toilets are available to purchase and install with your macerating unit.

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 80 dB 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.
