Toilet Technology Saves Money for Homeowners

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

To save the customer the cost and time of excavating the floor, installing underground piping or creating a raised floor, consider a macerating toilet.

A macerating toilet system, such as the Saniplus model from Saniflo, allows remodelers to easily add a bathroom in a basement or garage.

The client wants to add a second bathroom, but the home doesn't have drain lines nearby. To save the customer the cost and time of excavating the floor, installing underground piping or creating a raised floor, consider a macerating toilet. With self-contained pumps, these toilets can flush waste 12 feet vertically and 150 feet horizontally to connect to existing plumbing.

One bath used to be the rule, but these days one bath per bedroom is the trend. A second-floor addition is the answer, but it takes three tries to help clients work through the problem.
