going to be installing Saniplus, venting question
In the diagram for the installation .pdf it shows the pump itself, the sink, and the shower drains all meeting at a junction to tie into the main sewer vent. All of the installs I see on youtube only show the pump itself tying into the sewer vent. Do you have to vent each drain separately into the main? If so, why? Since ALL water is going to the pump why wouldn't just the pump vent be enough, or would it?

Ha! Even the video on the main page doesn't show them venting the sink or shower like the install page does...what???

Saniflow Stinks
I would recommend staying away from the Santiplus/best for whole bathroom. I did months of research, contacted contractors, owners and ended up busting concrete up and now installing sewage ejection pump.

Saniflow - $1000+install and material
Sewage Ejection-$400 plus install and material

If saniflow pump goes out... $700-$1000, ejection pump..$250

many satisfied customers of Saniplus. That's the way we are going. The macerator pump unit is $599 at Menards BTW. Saniflo emailed me and said that as long as the fixtures are within 4' no other vents are needed.
