upflush


I have an ariation system and the main sewer pipe runs out the wall about 4 ft. high . I am wanting to install a bathroom in my basement and I know this requires an up flush toilet, so how would that work with a shower and sink? Thanks!

upflush


worker...I think they work great when you have no other choice. This one goes thru the wall into the top of the pump. Handles wc, shower and sink no problem. This one is in the basement of a 1793 federal style house. The second toilet and only shower.


Sorry, pics to big. Anyway they work great.

upflush


Check out Saniflo here: www.saniflo.com.

Also, search the plumbing section here and at contractortalk.com for "saniflo" or "upflush".

I am using a Sanipump for a wet bar sink in my basement to pump the sink grey water up to the main waste pipe. About 6' up "upflushing" through a 3/4" PVC pipe. Very easy to install, but very easy to jam if the wrong thing goes down the drain. Design your system knowing you will have to eventually service the unit.

worker...as chucky recommended, I think it was a saniflo. Easy to install and instructions were pretty straight forward.
