Does the instructions advise fitting Non-return valves to the waste pipes ? if not is an option that will probably solve the problems.

Alternatively if you 100% sure it is fitted correctly, get the manufacturers out - as it is under warranty.

Has the shower waste got a fall on the pipe run into the macerator , you might have to raise the incline a bit more to stop the run back.
