Many different models of Saniflo macerators, including the SaniAccess2 and the SaniAccess3 macerator, offer an easy installation with only four connections needed to install the unit; the pump connects to the spigot of the toilet, the toilet tank connects to the water supply, the pump connects to the discharge pipe, and the pump connects to a power supply. Both of these models pump effluent upward to 15 feet and 150 feet horizontally, and both have a normal operating cycle that takes about 10 to 15 seconds, effectively minimizing power consumption.

The SaniAccess2 rates for a half bathroom, and in addition to toilet waste, it discharges grey water from a sink, while the SaniAccess3 macerator rates for a full bathroom and discharges toilet waste along with grey water from a variety of additional fixtures, including from a sink, bathtub or shower.

Bathroom Anywhere’s macerator pumps effluent upward 18 feet and 150 feet horizontally. The system has just two pieces, allowing for quick and simple access. Additionally, it has anti-backflow protection and a capacity of 60 gallons per minute.
