Simply Build It

First of all you need to make sure that the toilet is the right size for a saniflow.

Some don’t fit them; you end up chopping bit of the wall to get them to fit.
Try and keep the bends down on the pipe run, it does cut the flow.

Cast iron is not a problem; you can use a “time saverâ€
