    Macerator for Washing Macine 21st Sep 16 at 6:32 PM
    The macerator that we have in the cellar for the washing machine is making a grinding noise. I suspect it is due to something blocking it.

    Can anyone recommend a new macerator for us? Should we necessarily go for a Saniflo?

    It is in the cellar and this does the job.

    Can you suggest something else?

    I wonder about that ,too, as a macerator's function is to break 'waste products' into smaller pieces.

    Sure it's not just a pump and not a macerator?

    You can just replace it with a pump - probably cost a fraction of the price of a replacement macerator.
