The Sanipump from Saniflo, the provider of plumbing solutions for domestic and commercial settings, is a submersible black water pump for use with bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms. According to Saniflo, the pump is ideal for waste water and sewage disposal from underground pits and tanks and can also be used for grey water when pumping away from a pit or flood water situation.
Described by Saniflo as ‘an easy product to install’, the compact pump is delivered ready to use and can be quickly deployed in domestic and commercial applications where the maximum immersion depth requirement is 5m or less. The Sanipump is small in size and weight – just 13kgs – yet ‘big on performance’ with a flow rate of up to 11 m³/hour and a maximum discharge height of 14m. The unit is powered by a 1500 watt automatic motor and activated by a float system. Waste can be discharged through 40 or 50mm pipework from a range of appliances including a toilet, basin, bath, shower, washing machine, dishwasher, sink and external drainage areas.
Two models are available – the first has a macerator pump with high-performance, robust cutting blades to prevent clogging and the second version features Vortex technology that can pump away waste without the need to macerate. Both have thermal overload protection as standard.
