Saniflo Saniaccess3 upflush macerating unit offers double-panel access for easier maintenance The Saniaccess3® upflush macerating plumbing system from SFA Saniflo U.S.A. comes equipped with not one, but two easy-toopen panels atop the unit, providing ready access to the internal components for servicing. Periodic maintenance can be accomplished quickly and easily without having to disconnect the unit from either the toilet or the rest of the plumbing system. “This critical dual-access feature is what makes the new-generation Saniaccess3 macerator a truly unique and superior solution for plumbing installers,” says Regis Saragosti, CEO of SFA Saniflo, which invented upflush macerating plumbing technology in Europe in the late 1950s, bringing it to the United States in the 1990s. “Our half-century of experience in this field has enabled us to create a system that requires less time on the jobsite. That means a lower overall cost for the homeowner and higher productivity for the plumbing contractor.” Full and ready access Two service panels provide direct access to different segments of the macerating unit, allowing easy inspection and servicing of all major components: Through one opening, the installer can access the electrical components as well as the level sensor mechanism of the pump. The second panel provides ready access to the basket area around the macerating blades for easy removal of any large objects that may have been accidentally flushed. “Every component can be serviced or replaced without disconnecting the entire system,” Saragosti says. “That’s a huge time- and money-saver for service techs, enabling them to finish their work and get onto the next job that much faster.” High-performance features In addition to the benefit of ready access, the Saniaccess3 incorporates the same high-performance features found in Saniflo’s popular Saniplus upflush macerating unit, which also is intended for residential applications. Accommodates a full bath: Using the 2-in. Inlets located at the base and on either side of the macerator, the Saniaccess3 can handle wastewater not only from a toilet, but also from two additional fixtures, such as a sink and a bathtub or shower. Powerful cutting action: Water and waste entering the macerator are quickly reduced to slurry by stainless-steel blades that rotate at 3,600 rpm. The centrifugal force drives the reduced solids through a grill to an impeller mounted beneath the pump motor, which then ejects the effluent through discharge piping connected to the top of the macerator. Connects easily: The Saniaccess3 discharges effluent through a 3/4-in. Diameter pipe, usually made of PVC that connects to the main plumbing system in a home or a commercial building. The macerator has a vertical pumping distance of up to 15 ft. When installed below the sewer line; and nearly 150 ft. Horizontally – or a lesser combination of these two distances. An integral check valve on the discharge pipe conveniently rotates 360° without any special tools to accommodate different installations.
