TLC Tips To Keep Your SANIFLO System In Good Shape

A SANIFLO system is a convenient and innovative way to provide plumbing solutions in areas where traditional plumbing isn't practical or possible. Whether you have a SANIFLO system installed at your residential or commercial property, it's important to take proper care of the system to ensure it runs smoothly and efficiently. Here are some tips and advice on how to maintain your SANIFLO system:

Use the Right Cleaning Products

To keep your SANIFLO system functioning properly, it's important to use the right cleaning products. Avoid using harsh or corrosive chemicals or products that contain bleach, as these can damage the mechanisms and seals inside the system's components in the long run. Instead, use mild cleaning products to avoid permanent damage.


Most domestic pumps can accommodate one flush, for example, nine liters of water in the tank during a power outage.  Some of the bigger pumps can accommodate up to 600 liters.  Bear this in mind when choosing the product for your application. Most systems also work with back-up power supplies, for example generators or inverters.  The pump will resume normal function once the power is restored.

Avoid Flushing Non-Dissolvable Items

One of the most important things to remember when using a SANIFLO system is to avoid flushing non-dissolvable items down the toilet or sink. This includes items such as wipes, sanitary products, cotton buds, condoms, and other similar items. Flushing these items can cause blockages.

Not going to use the system for a long period

Should you be traveling / are not going to use the system for a long period of time it is recommended to flush the system and discharge pipe work with clean water. This would be as easy as flushing your toilet several times with clean water to ensure the unit and pipes are clear of any waste.

Maintenance and Servicing

To keep your SANIFLO system running smoothly, it's important to use trained professionals when servicing. This can be done by a qualified SANIFLO service agent, that can be found easily on our website.

Taking care of your SANIFLO system is essential to keep it running smoothly and efficiently. By using the right cleaning products, avoiding flushing non-dissolvable items, maintaining proper water flow, and proper maintenance, you can ensure your SANIFLO system remains in good condition for years to come.
