A typical household tends to have only one bathroom / toilet that has just one soil pipe to take the waste away and that is usually at the back of the house. If you are looking to install an en suite bathroom, a shower in a new loft extension, or a downstairs toilet under the stairs, but don’t have direct access to the conventional drainage system, then a Macerator pumping system offers the ideal solution. Conventional plumbing takes the waste away from the toilet through gravity fed 100mm pipework to the soil pipe, whereas with a macerator pump, waste and water is pumped away from the unit through a 22 or 32mm pipework to a soil stack. This is commonly referred to as Small Bore pumping system. Macerators can also pump upwards, meaning pipework is unobtrusive, and can run almost anywhere, such as underfloor boards or through loft space, giving you maximum flexibility in your home.
