Sanivite Heavy Duty Water PumpThe Sanivite gray water pump is the perfect solution for a basement apartment or anywhere else that you need to add additional plumbing fixtures. The Sanivite is preferred for heavy duty application because of its unique design and capabilities.
The inside of the Sanivite is comprised of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the pump.
When the water enters the Sanivite, it activates a micro switch in the pressure chamber, 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. Water enters the chamber and is pumped away into the sanitary sewer.
The unit pumps the effluent upward to 16 feet and/or 150 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the micro switch deactivates the unit until water enters the unit again. A normal operating cycle for the Sanivite can be as short as 2 - 10 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
Waste water from additional sanitary fixures is discharged into the sanivite via two 1-1/2" inlets on either side of the housing and another on top. The sanivite can accommodate a sink, shower, bathtub, urinal and even a whirlpool (additional base needed for shower and tub).
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. The use of mechanical vents, air admittance valves or similar devices are not permitted as these are considered one-way air vent systems.
It is also highly recommended for the gray water pump to be connected to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
The Sanivite is small enough to fit comfortably inside a kitchen cabinet or vanity or inside the overhang of a whirlpool.
