What are Macerators?

If you're doing a housing remodel that includes a new bathroom, you might be wondering if these types of pumps would be a good choice. In order that you can make the best decision for your home, we are looking at all you need to know about them. Very basically this is a kind of pump that is connected to a toilet (or in some cases included in the toilet itself if you buy a macerator toilet) that grinds up solid waste so that it can be pumped against gravity more effectively. This kind of system isn't used particularly often in the UK, but it can provide an efficient solution to a certain kind of problem.

When to Use Them?

They are almost always used in the home for basement bathrooms. Because they make waste more liquid that means that it's easier to pump the waste up from below the ground into an existing sewage pipe or outlet. For bathrooms that are installed in a basement or cellar, this can be an affordable and easy solution to getting waste out from under the ground.

What are the Advantages?

The primary advantage of installing this product is simply convenience. If you're installing a new bathroom in a basement and there's no existing sewage outlet then you can either install a macerator, or undergo more serious remodelling and extend the existing sewage outlet down into the basement. Of course, extending the sewage system will be costly and troublesome, whilst installing them is cheaper and a lot easier. Even if there is a sewage outlet in your below ground bathroom you might find that it's not enough to effectively clear the toilet, in which case they will give you an easier method to make sure that your toilet flushes every time.

What are the Disadvantages?

However, installing this is not a perfect solution. You will probably find that your toilet will use more water with this type of pumps when flushing, and some people find the noise to be more than a minor irritation since the macerator will make a grinding noise every time you flush the toilet. In the past these products have had a reputation for being unreliable and for frequently breaking down. These two things are not quite as much of a concern these days due to advances in technology, but a macerator is not likely to be quite as reliable as a regular toilet with a normal sewage pipe connection. If you use the macerator regularly you can expect to need to replace it within two to three years.

An excellent product. The unit smelled and worked so much better after using. Shame it is so expensive, couldn't it be cheaper?

Fitted this three years ago now. It was simple to fit and had transformed a small under stairs cupboard into a very useful toilet. It has performed without any trouble at all. I am a DIY installer and this was well within my capability.
