The Sanishower is a grey waste water pump. It is ideal for situations where a shower or wash basin is to be sited in a location with poor gravity drainage which would make it difficult or impossible to run otherwise.
The Sanishower is a small drain pump that may be used to pump waste water away from a shower, sink, bar sink, or other fixture. The Sanishower is small enough to fit underneath a raised shower base. Alternatively, it can be placed behind a wall or beside a shower.The Sanishower will pump wastewater up to 12 feet in height and/or 100 feet away from a soil stack.
Sanishower can pump away up to 15 litres of waste water per minute from a standard electric or gravity mixer shower, while a second inlet means a wash basin can be added too.
The inside of the Sanishower is comprised of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the pump.
When the water enters the Sanishower, it activates a micro switch in the pressure chamber, which in turn starts the motor. The motor is sealed for life in an oil filled enclosure. A spindle/shaft drives the impeller and therefore the moving parts are kept to an absolute minimum. Water enters the chamber and is pumped away into the sanitary sewer.
Examples of Sanishower usage include in a basement conversion or an internal wall. It can be installed underneath or beside a shower tray, allowing ease of access for maintenance.
The discharge elbow on the side of the Sanishower can be rotated 360 degrees to fit any type of installation required. A non-return valve, which comes already assembled on the discharge elbow, prevents back flow into the unit.
This unit has been designed with a vent output on the side of the unit. All plumbing codes require connection to a vent system. Please note that the vent system should be a two-way air vent. It is also highly recommended for the grey water pump to be connected to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
