So, it becomes very hard for homeowners to install a bathroom in a basement, an attic, and similar places. Therefore, an upflush toilet system seems like the best solution to this problem. Thanks to Saniflo, it offers a wide variety of upflush toilets with the macerating system.

Top 3 Saniflo Toilet Reviews
As I told before, Saniflo toilets are pricey. Before you buy it, you should read Saniflo upflush toilet reviews about its best and top-selling mates. I’m going to share details of 3 toilets which have high reviews and ratings.
Saniflo 023 SANICOMPACT 48 One-piece Toilet with Macerator
When you want to install a toilet where it is hard to install then Saniflo Sanicompact 023 seems like the best option you have. You can have a toilet in your basement or any other place you like. Its compact design makes it a good option for a small bathroom. This Saniflo toilet has a macerator built into the base. All solid waste is converted and reduced into liquid form through macerator blades installed into its base unit. After this conversion, this reduced waste is pumped away into a sanitary gravity drain.
SaniCompact is a self-contained system which let you create a half bathroom up to 9 feet below the sewer line, or even up to 120 feet away from a soil stack. It brings the dual-flush system. You can remove solid waste with 1.28 gpf water and handle liquid waste with 1 gallon per flush water. It doesn’t require gravity flow tank since flushing action is automatic. As soon as you press a push button on the top of the bowl, macerating pump cycle begins. Flushing mechanism is time electronically, just to make it possible for water to pass through the toilet in an efficient way.
Saniflo Bundle-16 Elongated Toilet with Sanibest (4 Pieces)
This elongated gravity flush toilet is designed with white finish and glaze. This toilet works best with the Sanibest Pro unit. This unit comprises of a toilet tank, a toilet bowl, and a grinder unit. You can connect this unit with a shower and sink as well. It can pump away not only gray water alongside with all waste inside the commode to your home sanitary lines.
One thing I forgot to mention in Saniflo Pros and Cons is that many of its toilets meet ADA compliance and requirements. Therefore, people with physical limitations can use this toilet without any difficulty. This toilet is designed with 16-3/4 inches (seating height) and this specification matches with ADA compliance.
People who are concern about the beauty of their bathroom usually want to hide the macerating pump section of this unit. So, they are able to use an extension pipe designed especially for this toilet. They can extend this pump as far as they can. You can hide the pump inside the wall and thereby you can reduce the noise comes often out of pump during its macerating process.
It is a fact that upflush toilets from Saniflo require constant maintenance and repair. They are prone to clogging. But you can handle the clogging through Descaler. This toilet cleaner is designed specially to use with Saniflo products. When you use it regularly with SaniAccess 2 units then you will worry less about toilet repair and maintenance. Moreover, it would also enhance the life of the unit.
Saniflo Saniaccess 2 Upflush Macerator Pump + Round Toilet Kit
Another compact toilet unit that allows you to set a half bathroom in no time is this one. SaniAccess 2 unit is comprised of the macerating pump, toilet tank, and toilet bowl. When it comes to picking a compatible toilet with this unit then you got two main options: round and elongated. As I have shared details of an elongated toilet before, so I would like to share my personal experience of a round toilet.
Its tank is made of vitreous china and Saniflo offers one year warranty on China products. The 1.28 gpf WaterSense toilet facility allows you to use water its most. It doesn’t offer the dual-flush mechanism that you get with SaniCompact mode. Toilet bowl comes with round front, 16-3/4 inches height, and 27 inches depth. It doesn’t comply with ADA requirements. So, when you need the toilet for a person with physical limitations then you should consider an elongated toilet option.
When you first look at the complete toilet unit, then you might think that its installation would be hard and difficult. But it is not the case at all. You don’t have to do much for its installation. SaniAccess 2 requires four connections: toilet tank connects to water supply, macerator pump connects to a rear discharge toilet, pump connects to discharge pipe, and macerator units connect to the electrical supply. Drill four holes on the floor and set your read toilet. So, you are able to set a half bathroom anytime anyplace within a few hours.
