Saniflo Saniswift Residential Water Pump - 021
Saniswift Residential Water PumpThe easy fix to complicated problems. The Saniswift is a modern design gray water which can be used anywhere in a home. The Saniswift allows you to add plumbing fixtures such as kitchen, laundry or bar sinks, dishwasher and even a washing machine through an indirect connection. The Saniswift offers opportunities you never dreamed were possible.
The Saniswift is a gray water pump that is ideally suitable for use in a
basement apartment or anywhere in the house where additional fixtures
are most wanted. It will pump the waste water away from a variety of
sources such as: a kitchen sink, laundry sink, washing machine
(indirect connection), dishwasher, bar sink, etc.
The Saniswift's modern style prevails over other bulky relics. This
system offers powerful and economical pumping action in a compact,
contemporary design. With unprecedented performance and features,
this pump is unmatched in its class.
The inside of the Saniswift comprises of a pressure switch and circuit
board assembly, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which
drives the pump.
When the water enters the Saniswift, it activates a pressure switch
which in turn starts the motor. The motor is sealed for life in an oil filled
enclosure. A spindle/shaft drives the impeller and therefore the moving
parts are kept to an absolute minimum.
The unit pumps the effluent upward to 14 feet and/or 140 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the pressure switch deactivates the unit until water enters the unit again. A normal operating cycle for the Saniswift can be as short as 2 - 10 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
In addition to a sink, the Saniswift will also accept and discharge the waste water from a variety of other sanitary fixtures such as: a kitchen sink, a shower, a urinal. When adding a shower, a base will have to be constructed.
This base should be made out of a 2" x 6" (minimum) or 2 x 8 (recommended) on edge, to allow for the installation of a P-trap and the required 1/4 per foot gravity flow towards the pump unit.
The waste water from other sanitary fixtures is discharged into the Saniswift via two 1-1/2 inch inlets, on either side of the housing and an additional inlet on the top of the unit. A non-return valve, which comes already assembled on the discharge rubber connector, prevents back flow into the unit.
This unit has been designed with a vent connection on the lid. All plumbing codes require connection to a vent system. Please note that the vent system should be a two-way air vent.
It is also highly recommended for the gray water pump to be connected to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
The Saniswift is a compact unit with attractive rounded contours that fits neatly into tight spaces.

I am a plumber and we had to use some type of pump to get the waste water up to the drainage sustem from bastment. We set it up under the service sink and dumped the washing machine into the sink also. This house is located on the beach, so the washing machine runs allot. The first pump we put in was six years old and we replacced it. It's a tough little pump.

Over the past 10 years, I have installed several Saniflo toilet pump systems in basements. This is my first 'small' Saniflo pump system. I installed the unit under the counter in a basement bar sink cabinet. It's important to note that the reasons this particular model was chosen was the clean appearance of the product and the footprint which would need to fit inside a 15" cabinet base (with 13" inside clearance). The supply and discharge lines were located on the cabinet side rather than the rear. The pump was turned sideways and easily fit in the small cabinet. The installation went smoothly and quickly. The instructions were clear and easy to understand. I spent about 30 minutes hooking all the pipes up to the unit -- sink drain, discharge and vent. The discharge line was 9 feet vertical and 30 feet horizontal. The unit performed flawlessly. I was very satisfied and will no doubt order additional Saniflo products when needed.

I have installed three (3) saniflo unit to date and I cannot say enough good things about them. They are easy to install, work extremely efficiently and are the most economical way to add an additional bath, sink or shower.

The saniflo unit works fine 3/6/2012
The saniflo unit works fine. The instructions were terrible. I hired a plumber to install it. With better instructions I could have done it myself.

I am satisfied with the saniflo saniswift that I purchased, it arrived sooner than I expected,it operates great although I did not think it would be as noisy as it is,I even mounted it on a piece of foam but that did not help. thank you
Jennifer from PA
Pleased with performance 3/1/2012
The Saniflow waste water pump functions well. I must agree with other reviewers in disappointment with the installation instructions. However, we were able to figure it out!

Install was very easy and the system works as advertised. 7/27/2011
We have had the Saniflo system installed for about 4 months now. We are using it in the basement for a wet bar sink. We have the unit mounted in the cabinet under the sink. Install was very easy and the system works as advertised. Main drain line is about 9 feet above and 10 feet away from the Saniflo. The unit does a great job at pushing the liquids “up hill” and I did not have to dig up my basement floor. My only compliant (and it is minor) is that the motor could be more insulated – it is a bit loud. I ended up putting a small rubber tile under the unit and it helped absorb most of the vibration and some of the noise.

Overall happy with the unit 7/25/2011
The waste water pump works great. I was a little disappointed with the installation instructions. A few words to go with the pictures would have been helpful. The only problem that I have not completely corrected yet is the vent. Why would the vent be factory sealed to the point that you need to use a saw to open it and then it is tapered so a regular pvc coupling won’t fit, nor is it threaded to allow one to simply screw in a fitting??? Overall happy with the unit, it solved a problem that seemed to have no easy fix.

I am sending this to give feedback regarding the Saniflo Saniswift that I purchased recently. The product worked as expected and I am satisfied with the quality of the product

The Saniflow unit works well but the directions included with the unit are pathetic 7/22/2011
The Saniflow unit works well but the directions included with the unit are pathetic and quite possibly the worst piece of technical writing I have seen in a long time. It is incongruous to send such lousy instructions with a quality product!
