Advanced toilet systems save money, time, and resources

(NC) Labeled as the new generation of household latrines, macerating toilet systems are a fast, cost-effective, and eco-friendly option for bathroom additions or renovations. Here's the scoop:


Macerating toilet systems can be installed anywhere in your home, from the basement to the attic, in as little as half a day. With the use of a ¾ inch piping system, the drain lines can be run without opening up walls and floors, minimizing renovation mess and installation time.


Although the price may seem more than a conventional toilet, opting for macerating toilets saves the money that would otherwise be spent on a conventional plumbing installation. Macerating toilets are an above-floor solution not only saving space, but saving time and stress.


In comparison to the conventional toilet system, macerating toilets use approximately 38% less water per flush. As the waste is macerated before entering the sewage line it is easier and quicker for the normal bacteria to break it down. Models like the tankless Sanicompact, wall-hung Sanistar, and Saniaccess 3 by Saniflo (, feature European designs that fit seamlessly into modern, spa-inspired bathrooms.

More information on these toilet systems is available online at, or toll-free at 1-800-363-5874.
