Plumbing Question

What toilet can fit into a saniflo macerator?

Hello,

I have a hairline crack in the cistern of a toilet that goes into a Saniplus macerator and am looking to buy a new close coupled toilet - WC pan and cistern - and understand that I need a WC pan with a short spigot 100mm Horizontal Outlet that conforms to BS EN 33/37. From what I've been told this is most WC pans and then there may be a bit of pipe/seal required to plumb to the macerator...can someone help is that the case? I don't want to buy a new toilet and then find out it can't be fitted.

Thanks in advance,

C

Hi,
Measure the distance from the bottom of the ceramic outlet pipe to the floor on you present toilet and then make certain that the new loo has more or less the same distance. It is not absolutely critical within 10 or 20 mm because the Saniflo box has a rubber inlet which will allow a little leeway. The new loo must have an outlet which comes straight out, not one with a bend in it. The seal is taken care of by the Saniflo unit which fits directly onto the bowl itself and is held tight by a massive Jubilee clip.
Need any further advice give me a call.

Guy.
