    Hi,

    Anyone tried Grundfos macerators? They seem to be cheaper than Saniflo, and I've had two Saniflos (lucky me, huh) and one of them has been nothing but trouble, although must admit the other one has been ok.

    Apart from price I like the Grundfos because I think they can cope with 22mm outlet pipes, which is what I have. Saniflos are not technically supposed to go into something that small.

    But are the Grundfos ok? I am looking at one to pump waste from kitchen sink and dishwasher about 10-12m horizontal with slight overall fall.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    All macerators are the work of Satan.

    A bucket would be better.

    Yes, they are.

    But unless the Lord will deliver me a soil stack somewhere nearer, I'll have to stick with Satan I'm afraid.

    They do say better the devil you know!

    But I do have to say I have seen the Grundfos model at the exhibitions and do rather prefer its design.
