saniflo pump


Postby stevecass » Mon Jan 12, 2009 11:09 am

Am having a saniflo pump fitted in kitchen as drainage from sink very slow due to being a long way from the drainage pipe but having difficulty finding a plumber who is confident with fitting saniflo pumps. Saniflo website has lst of maintenance engineers nut they say they only maintain and I need a plumber to install. So I am back into the issue of finding a competent/confident plumber who can install the saniflo in the first place. I live in Cirencester, Glos and would be grateful for any advice.

Simply Build It

I assume you are looking at a sanivite pump. This can be installed by yourself since it only involves plastic pipes connecting to the unit through rubber joints held by large jubilee clips. The only hard bit is making sure you use solvent weld pipe for the outlet and getting an electrician in to make the final connection.

Installation instructions on their website are comprehensive.

My advice s that it# not worth trying to service or fix your own Saniflo unit. Its not a pleasant job, and without the right kit is not recommended. I used a Pumpmaster plumber who came round and unblocked it and serviced it for about £80. I think they have a website with the telno on Google "pumpmaster.co.uk" .

Go onto th Saniflo Website - saniflo.co.uk and look up approved Saniflo engineers in your area. All the work will then be guaranteed by Saniflo.
