What is a Macerating Toilet and
When Should You Install One?
Standard toilets sit above the main sewer or septic line, making it easy for waste to flow through the system thanks to gravity. But some bathrooms are located below-ground, making it impossible for waste to flow up to reach the sewer line. This is where a macerating toilet or pump comes in.
A macerating toilet (also known as an “upflush toilet”) is designed for rooms that sit below the main sewer line, or rooms that don’t have easy access to plumbing lines. Instead of carrying out a major overhaul of your existing plumbing system, you can opt for the convenience of a macerating toilet.
The macerating toilet will deposit waste into a macerating pump (located behind the toilet). The pump features high-power blades that work to grind up solid waste so it can easily be pumped up into the sewer pipe system.
