What is the best Saniflo toilet cleaner?
Every Saniflo macerator pump will give years of trouble-free use if you follow the instructions given, with the first two years being fully guaranteed by a manufacturer’s warranty.
Those instructions include advice on regular cleaning and other maintenance, which may lead you to ask: ‘what is the best Saniflo toilet cleaner to use?’
The answer is it’s the specially-formulated Saniflo Cleanser and Descaler produced by Saniflo themselves.
Other products simply don’t work as well, and can in fact cause damage to the internal operations of the unit.
Regular use of other toilet cleaners or ordinary household bleach can damage the rubber membrane that covers the switch that governs when the macerator unit turns itself on and off.
The switch becomes overly sensitive when the membrane is damaged. It means that if you have a wooden floor, for example, even the vibrations from just walking past could set the trigger off. Similarly, the unit may continue to operate for much longer than necessary after a flush, until it eventually turns itself off almost at random or else overheats. Neither of these is good for the continued correct operation of the unit and both will instead just lead to service call-outs and repair bills.
Occasional use of small amounts of bleach or other cleaner is okay, and will partly clean a Saniflo unit, but will not do so as well as the Saniflo Cleanser and Descaler.
The other issue arises when descaling the unit, which must be done regularly in hard water areas in particular.
Again, most off-the-shelf products are unsuitable for Saniflo units, because of chemicals contained and how they react with the machinery mechanism inside.
Saniflo Cleanser and Descaler however is based on a formula of ultra-concentrated phosphoric acid, which will not damage rubber components or moving parts. It instead delivers a worry-free, deep clean descaling result, each and every time it is used.
For superior results and utmost peace of mind regarding the long-term operation of your Saniflo unit, use Saniflo Cleanser and Descaler every time.
