In commercial installations, plumbing codes may require an elongated bowl
(ADA) to be installed with this system.
|The inside of the Sanigrind
Pro comprises of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the
unit, and the motor, which drives the stainless steel cutting
blade and the pump. When the flush is activated, the water
flowing into the Sanigrind Pro 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 common spindle/shaft drives the impeller
and the blades. The moving parts therefore are kept to an
Water and organic waste matter,
enter the chamber and are reduced to slurry as the blades rotate
at 3600 RPM. The reduced solids are picked up at the bottom and
the impeller mounted beneath the motor ejects the waste.
The unit pumps the effluent
upward to 25 feet and/or 150 feet horizontally (with gravity
fall). Once the water level in the container goes down, the
micro switch deactivates. The operating cycle for the Sanigrind
Pro varies depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration.
In addition, the Sanigrind Pro will
also discharge gray water from a variety of other sanitary fixtures such
as: a sink, a bathtub/shower, a urinal and even a washing machine
(indirect connection). When adding a bathtub/shower, there should be a
height difference between the bottom side inlet of the pump and the base
of the bathtub or shower. This height difference should be of 6”
(minimum) or 8” (recommended), to allow for the installation of a P-trap
and the required 1/4” per foot gravity flow towards the pump unit.
The wastewater from other sanitary
fixtures is discharged into the Sanigrind Pro via two 2-inch inlets, on
either side of the housing. The discharge elbow on top of the Sanigrind
Pro can be rotated 360 degrees depending on the discharge installation.
A non-return valve (included in assembly) prevents back flow into the
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 highly recommended for the system to be connected to a Ground Fault
Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
Periodic maintenance can be
accomplished easily without having to disconnect the unit from either
the toilet or the rest of the plumbing system. Through a service panel,
a service contractor can easily access the electrical components as well
as the level sensor mechanism of the pump.
The Sanigrind Pro (014) is ordered as a single unit only. No
toilet, cabinets, shower nor bathtub are included.
