    Question is, can I tee into my sewer with the new soil pipe and close back up? or does it have to have an access manhole?

    Do not use a saniflo for anything. You will regret it.

    Highly likely you will need a chamber. Access for rodding needs to be provided to the new section of drain, especially for a toilet. The extra work and expense to fit a manhole is negligible though compared with the benefits over a macerator in the long term. Provided the drain is laid correctly there's virtually nothing to go wrong. Manhole satisfies building regs in the rare event of a blockage.
