Additional Saniflo Saniswift Drain Pump Product Information

The inside of the Saniswift is comprised 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 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 standard 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 wastewater from various other sanitary fixtures such as a laundry 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 Saniswift can also accept gray water from a washing machine through an indirect connection such as a laundry sink.


The wastewater 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 backflow 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 that the gray water pump 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.
