Do you want to put a bathroom where conventional plumbing makes it difficult or even impossible? Then you need a Saniflo with its unique macerating system. Use that wasted space in the basement, under the stairs, even in a bedroom closet, without breaking the floor (or the bank). An extra bath, shower or powder room can fit in small spaces and increase the value of your house.
While most of our products are basically shredders, the Sanibest incorporates an actual grinder system. The Sanibest is ideal for situations where you do not control the use of it; i.e. rental unit, offices, warehouses, etc. Sanibest is designed to deal with sanitary articles that may have been flushed down the toilet by accident. It can be used with a round bowl or elongated bowl. Note: in commercial installations Code requires an elongated bowl.
Sanibest is a system that is used to install a complete bathroom up to 18 feet below the sewer line, or even up to 150 feet away from a soil stack. The toilet uses only 1.6 USG (6 litres) of water per flush. The Sanibest is simplicity itself to install; there are just four connections.
The macerating pump is connected to the spigot of a SANIFLO rear discharge toilet.
The toilet tank is connected to water supply.
The macerating pump is connected to small diameter discharge pipe work.
The macerating pump is connected to electrical supply.
The Sanibest macerating system is comprised of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the stainless steel macerator blades and pump. To learn more about the macerating process please refer to What is a macerator? A normal operating cycle for Sanibest takes about 10-20 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
In addition to the toilet waste, Sanibest will also discharge gray wastewater from a variety of other sanitary fixtures, such as: a sink, a bath, a bidet, a urinal and even a clothes washer (Note: washing machine must drain to a laundry sink or tub first). When adding a bathtub or shower, a base will have to be constructed made out of 2" x 6" on edge (or 2" x 8" is recommended, if you have sufficient headroom). This allows for the installation of a P-trap and some gravity flow towards the pump unit.
Wastewater from other fixtures is discharged into Sanibest via two 11/2-inch inlets, on either side of the housing. Either one or both inlets can be used as required. The discharge elbow on top of the Sanibest can be turned either to the left or to the right, depending on the discharge installation.
Sanibest automatically adjusts the input rate from other fixtures, always giving priority to the discharge water of the toilet. Inlet valves operated by a simple float mechanism achieve this. For example, if the bath is being emptied and the toilet is flushed simultaneously, the inrush of water from the toilet into the container slows down or stops the discharge from other fixtures for a few seconds, until the waste from the toilet has been dealt with. As the toilet water is discharged, the level in the container goes down, the float valves open and the discharge from other fixtures resumes.
The Sanibest is designed to provide vertical pumping up to 18 feet as well as a horizontal discharge, therefore a simple ball non-return valve is incorporated. This allows you to install a complete bathroom where previously this would have been impossible or where considerable capital equipment and structural work would have been necessary.
