Water Comes Out Of The Air Vent When Flushing
The most common reason for this to happen is because on the lid the inlet pipe which is inserted in to the pump outlet has shrunk in diameter, this is because too much toilet cleaning chemicals have been used in the past. Another possible reason is that the saniflo box is full of waste materials and not leaving enough room for water, the box would need removing and cleaned out by hand.

My Saniflo is Leaking.
There are a number of reasons for this happening, if a macerator has a foreign object caught on the blade the pump cant spin fast enough to clear the waste water and can sometimes leak out of the air vent on the top of the Saniflo. Another reason can be if the lid of the Saniflo has been removed in the past and not been put back properly water can leak out of the box while it is in operation. There could be a leak actually coming from the toilet, leaking on to the Saniflo and making it appear there’s a fault with it.

My Saniflo is Noisy.
This is normally due to a foreign object like sanitary products, wipes, cotton buds etc being thrown in to the toilet and catching on the macerating blade as it is turning this can be cured by by having these items removed. A motor can also be noisy and make a knocking noise if it has come to the end of it’s natural working life, foreign objects can drastically reduce a motors lifespan.
