Saniflo small-bore pumps and macerators enable the addition of facilities almost anywhere even if access to mains drainage is either impossible or cost prohibited. The stories below have been selected to illustrate the diversity of Saniflo Products, both in application and location! Sanivite Flies High The staff canteen at the Scottish Seabird Centre, north Berwick, is on the ground floor, but the washing facilities for all the dishes and cutlery is provided by two separate sinks located in the basement. This presented a major problem - raising the waste water up to the ground floor for disposal into the building’s mains drainage system. A SANIVITE unit was suggested by local plumber Robert Walker. He says: “ This was a more than adequate solution which was very quickly, efficiently and economically provided by connecting both sinks to the one SANIVITE and then running the 32mm pipework up the wall and out through the ceiling.We incorporated a total of three bends to get the waste water precisely to the man drainage system. “I was fully aware of the Saniflo range and the capabilities of the various models and knew that the SANIVITE would comfortably meet the requirements. It made it possible to locate the sinks where it was convenient for their purpose but would not have been possible using traditional Sanicubics on the Rooftops of London When the top floor of the iconic Dickens and Jones building was redesigned to incorporate two glamorous restaurants problems of drainage arose. Gravity drainage was not an option due to the building being listed and retaining concrete floors.Waste and water from the kitchens and bars needed to be dealt with quickly and efficiently. 5 SANICUBIC units were installed to deal with this quantity of waste water. The units were located adjacent either to a wall or a steel column permitting the pump discharge and vent pipe to rise from the floor void. These were then concealed in the restaurants false ceiling to run to the nearest gravity drainage pipe. Saniflo the order of the day! www. .co.uk Saniflo Ltd.
