‘Touch of Security’: New SANIALARM Detects High Water Levels in a Macerator or Gray Water Pump
EDISON, NEW JERSEY (FEBRUARY 25, 2009) — The new SANIALARM from SFA Saniflo Inc. is designed to prevent water inside a Saniflo macerator or gray water pump from rising above the maximum allowable level, as the result of a power failure, limescale buildup or some other abnormality.
Once the level is exceeded, the unit’s alarm emits a continuous 80-decibel warning sound until it is shut off or the problem is rectified. After the cause for the alarm is removed, the SANIALARM can be reactivated by flipping the built-in ON-OFF switch to the “ON” position again.
Operating with a 9-volt battery (not supplied), the SANIALARM consists of a buzzer, a pressure controller, a plunger tube that senses the water level, and a facility for external alarm connection, as well as the ON-OFF switch. The unit can be installed on most Saniflo macerators and gray water pumps – both new and existing installations – including the popular Saniplus system.
Measuring 3.3 inches x 2.4 inches x 6 inches, the SANIALARM is designed to fit quickly and easily onto the lid of the macerating or gray water device through a 3/8-inch mounting hole.
“The SANIALARM offers a ‘touch of security’ by detecting overflow problems before they become difficult to manage,” says Saniflo president Regis Saragosti. “The only required maintenance is to replace the battery annually.”
Why maceration? Macerating technology is a cost-effective, easy-to-install solution for both residential and commercial bathroom applications. The macerator uses a fast-rotating cutting blade to liquefy human waste and toilet paper in the flush water, discharging it under pressure through a ¾-inch copper or plastic line.
“The Saniplus and the more heavy-duty Sanibest can be installed atop any finished floor,” says Regis Saragosti. “This critical feature permits the creation of a new bathroom wherever it is most convenient for the home or building owner: in a basement, attic or garage; underneath stairs or inside a newly remodeled space.”
Gone is the need for costly excavation of the existing floor or building a raised floor to install a drain line, as required by systems using a sewage ejector. Walls and floors remain intact, and installation is accomplished quickly and economically with minimal disturbance to room layout. “A complete bathroom can be operational in as little time as a half-day,” adds Regis Saragosti.
