The Sanicubic 1 VX is a 1.5 HP heavy-duty simplex Vortex system used to pump away wastewater from several bathrooms and fixtures from an entire building structure. This system can discharge the waste up to 36 feet vertical and 328 feet horizontal. It incorporates a Vortex system ideal for uncontrolled environments in residential and commercial applications (i.e., rental units, offices, warehouses, etc.). The Sanicubic 1 VX is designed to handle sanitary products that may have been flushed down the toilet; such may consist of condoms, sanitary napkins, q-tips, dental floss, etc., as well as large diameter solids.

    Product Information

    This system consists of a 1.5-HP motor housed inside a compact but highly durable plastic enclosure. The motor has a high-performance grinding system and a fast-rotating cutting blade to reduce solids in the wastewater stream from toilets, tubs, showers, sinks, washing machines, dishwashers, etc.


    The Sanicubic 1 VX operation is as simple as the installation. The effluent enters the pump through one of four different inlets – one on either side of the unit at the bottom and two along the top. The inlets can accommodate 1-1/2" or 4" diameter pipes. The pumping system activates as soon as the wastewater level reaches the trigger point. The effluent is pumped out through a 1-1/2" diameter rigid pipe connected to the top of the pump. Maximum pumping distances are 36 ft (2'') or 20 ft (4'') vertically and/or 328 Ft horizontally.


    The inside of the Sanicubic 1 VX comprises a couple of pressure switches, a circuit board assembly that starts and stops the unit, and a powerful motor that drives the Vortex impeller and the pump. The motor is sealed for life in an oil-filled enclosure. A standard spindle/shaft drives the impeller. The moving parts, therefore, are kept to an absolute minimum. Water, organic waste matter, and solids that enter the enclosure are reduced and are picked up by the impeller mounted beneath the motor.  

    The pump is able to handle up to 125 GPM (2'') or 137 GPM (4''). If the incoming rate is higher than the discharge rate, the pump automatically signals the "alarm" stage. This will activate the visual alarm on the pump's external control panel and the audible alarm from the wired control box (if connected).


    The Sanicubic 1 VX can be retrofitted into an existing sewage ejector basin of at least 24" in diameter for a quick and easy pump exchange. As this is considered a "plug and play" device, no chains or floats are needed.


    Note that the effluent pipe leading into the pump has to be installed with the required ¼" per foot gravity flow. There must be an 11" height difference (from the pump to connecting fixture) if the drain is connected to the bottom inlet.


    The wastewater from other sanitary fixtures is discharged into the Sanicubic 1 VX via three 1½-inch or 4" inlets on either side of the housing and the top of the enclosure. The internal discharge pipe has a check valve preventing backflow into the unit. Isolating valves (ball, gate valves) must be installed on waste inlets and the discharge pipe to ensure that any service/maintenance may be carried out safely.


    This unit has been designed with a 2-1/2" vent connection on the top of the enclosure. All plumbing codes require connection to a vent system. Please note that the vent system should be a two-way air vent. Using mechanical vents, air admittance valves, or similar devices is not permitted as these are considered one-way air vent systems.


    The Sanicubic 1 VX is IP68 rated for possible submergence, eliminating any potential water damage to internal components. It has an external control panel and a visual and audible alarm system (15' long wire).


    The Sanicubic 1 VX has been certified to American and Canadian Standards. Macerating standard; US: CSA Certified - ASME A112.3.4, CA: Macerating Standard CSA B45.9.
