The SANIGRIND is a system that allows up to 3 connections to install a complete bathroom up to 18 feet below the sewer line, or even up to 150 feet away from a soil stack. This is a grinder unit only and is designed to work with a standard bottom outlet toilet. It can handle effluent from a toilet, sink, bathtub, shower and washing machine (indirect connection). It can be installed in many locations such as, a loft/attic, upper floor, ground floor, basement and even a garage. It is also designed to handle accidental flushing of sanitary articles; such as sanitary napkins, q-tips, dental floss, etc.
In commercial installations, plumbing codes require an elongated bowl to be installed with this system.
The unit pumps the effluent upward 18 feet and/or 150 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). The operating cycle for the SANIGRIND varies depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration. In addition, the SANIGRIND will also discharge gray water from a variety of other sanitary fixtures, such as: a sink, a bathtub/shower, a urinal and even a washing machine. When adding a bathtub/shower, there should be a height difference between the side inlet of the pump and the base of the bathtub/shower. This height difference should be of 6” or 8” (recommended), allowing for the installation of a P-trap and the required 1/4” per foot gravity flow toward the pump unit.
The wastewater form other sanitary fixtures is discharged into the SANIGRIND via two 1 1/2 inch inlets on either side of the housing. The discharge elbow on top of the SANIGRIND can be rotated 360 degrees depending on the discharge installation. A non-return valve (included in assembly) prevents backflow into the unit. This unit has been designed with a vent connection on the lid. All plumbing codes require connection to a vent system. The vent system should be a two-way air vent. The use of mechanical vents, air admittance valves, or similar devices are not permitted as these are considered one-way air vent systems.
