All SFA products are designed to pump out the waste into a city sewer, septic tank or soil stack.
SFA recommends to use PVC, CPVC, copper.
Depending on the pump model, the discharge pipe can be 22 to 32 mm diameter pipe (DN 50 for Sanicubic).
Depending on your country, SFA products may require a vent pipe, which must be vented to the main vent stack as per plumbing codes.
Maintenance is not required for any of our products. However, we recommend the use SFA's Descaler which acts as a cleanser and descaler.

A macerating pump is designed to handle the flush of human waste and toilet paper only (Sanitop, Saniplus, Sanipro, Sanipack, Sanicompact and Sanistar).
A grinder pump is designed to handle the flush of human waste, toilet paper and sanitary napkins such as feminine hygiene products (Sanibest, and Sanicubic Classic).
SFA products last about 10 to 15 years, if not longer. They have been tested for about 50,000 cycles, flushed 10 x a day = 3,650 flushes a year. As this was a standard test, it was stopped at 50,000 cycles, therefore they will last much longer.
There is no need to break up the floor. Saniflo can easily be installed anywhere on any finished floor.
The macerator does not require any special maintenance, however, to ensure many years of loyal service, we recommend that you regularly clean and descale your grinder.
The special descaling SANIBOYEUR SFA was designed to remove tartar while respecting the internal organs of your device. The frequency of this operation depends on the hardness of your water. If you have a suitable mill, you can use conventional products to clean your toilet bowl (the same for the range of SANICOMPACT). However, be careful not to use drain cleaners or any other acid products that may damage the internal components of your adjustable grinder.
The evacuation of flush triggers generally 2-3 startups of a cycle of 1 or 2 seconds each. If your device is running longer than before, it is possible that your device system of rubber float needs a cleaning / descaling. You can do this by using white vinegar or better, the special descaler SANIBROYEUR SFA: electrically disconnect your device, then pour 2 liters of product in the bowl of your toilet. Leave for a few hours and then reconnect and pull the flush.
The Sanibroyeur Silence is not noisier than flush. The volume in decibels can vary from one installation to another, depending on the product and especially its environment (tiled room or not, size and geometry of the part) ... This is why we do not communicate value to our decibel units. However, the new range offers a quiet 10dB reduction compared to the old one. Moreover, it is crucial to observe installation tips to avoid the propagation of sound vibrations (no contact between the mill and the wall, setting up silent feet in the tub, intervals fixing the pipe ...).
You can also opt to put a layer of sound insulation between the mill and the floor and / or wall for greater soundproofing.
A shower can be installed on most of our products. The shower base will need to be raised a minimum of 6 inches, but is recommended 8 inches.
The extension pipe is designed to be used with the Sanitop, Saniplus, Sanipro and Sanibest models. The extension pipe has one end with a rubber gasket built inside and the other end is hard plastic. The end with the inner gasket built inside attaches to the back of the toilet (no need for a clamp on that end) and the other end of the extension pipe is clamped to the front of the unit; inside the pan gasket.
