Get to Know Saniflo’s Powerful and Versatile Grey Water Drain Pumps

An easy solution for adding plumbing fixtures without the hassle

CAMBRIDGE, ON (May 22, 2019) – Above-floor plumbing can make it easy and cost-effective to achieve a number of today’s trendiest plumbing-related home improvements, like outdoor kitchens and second-floor laundry rooms, that add value, convenience and enjoyment to a home. SFA Saniflo Canada has been a leader in the plumbing market for 30 years and has revolutionized the industry with a wide range of plumbing solutions for both residential and commercial applications.

Above-floor plumbing encompasses both macerating toilet systems (also known as upflush plumbing) and drain pumps for residential and commercial grey water removal. While conventional plumbing may require homeowners to endure the often costly and messy inconvenience of having to cut into a concrete foundation, upflush plumbing effectively eliminates this concern. Choosing an up-flush system means homeowners can make improvements to their home faster, more easily and with fewer associated costs.

“Imagine the freedom to be able to install a new toilet or shower wherever it’s convenient for you, rather than only where the pipes happen to be located,” says Alexandra Motts, National Sales Manager for Saniflo Canada. “Saniflo systems give homeowners the power and flexibility to add new plumbing fixtures wherever they work best for today’s more flexible lifestyles.”

Spared the expense and hassle of having to break through concrete floors to install traditional drain lines, homeowners can create a new bathroom, bar, kitchen, laundry or other wet area almost anywhere in the home, including the attic, basement, garage, second floor, and even outside.
