The saniflo system is ideal for installing a toilet/bathroom where there isn't any access to a gravity drain.
The Saniflo unit is a pumped macerator unit that can pump kitchen or toilet/bathroom waste to the gravity drain in small bore pipe-work.
Saniflo systems are prone to blockages if not used correctly or if excess toilet paper/sanitary towels are flushed down the toilet that is served by the Saniflo. Sanitary towels can jam the pump in the saniflo causing blockages and flooding. Drain Doctor has had years of experience with dealing with blockages in Saniflo systems.
Saniflo small bore pipe-work can be cleared with the use of a jet plumb air pac system or by a small cable fed from a hand gun (electro-mechanical). Blockages on the small bore pipe-work are often caused by tight bends on the outlet pipe-work so we would recommend to install easy bends where possible. This also aids blockage clearing.
