Drain Doctor has had years of experience with dealing with blockages in Saniflo systems.
The Saniflo system is ideal for installing a toilet/bathroom where there isn't any access to a gravity drain. The saniflo unit is a pumped macerator unit that can pump kitchen or toilet/bathroom waste to the gravity drain in small bore pipe-work.
Saniflo systems are prone to blockages if not used correctly or if excess toilet paper/sanitary towels are flushed down the toilet that is served by the Saniflo. Sanitary towels can jam the pump in the saniflo causing blockages and flooding.
Saniflo small bore pipe-work can be cleared with the use of a jet plumb air pac system or by a small cable fed from a hand gun (electro-mechanical). Blockages on the small bore pipe-work are often caused by tight bends on the outlet pipe-work so we would recommend to install easy bends where possible. This also aids blockage clearing.
