The Sanivite is a gray water pump and is ideally suitable for use in a basement apartment. It will pump waste water away from a variety of sources, such as a kitchen sink, laundry sink, clothes washer (indirect via a laundry tub only), dishwasher, bar sink, etc., etc.

The inside of the Sanivite comprises of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit and the motor, which drives the pump.

When water is entering the Sanivite a microswitch in the pressure chamber is activated, which in turn starts the motor. The motor is sealed for life in an oil filled enclosure. A spindle drives the impeller, the moving parts therefore are kept to an absolute minimum. Water and organic waste matter, enter the chamber and are pumped away into the sanitary sewer. The pump operates at 10 PSI and pumps the waste upwards to 12 feet and/or 150 feet horizontally. Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the microswitch deactivates the unit until water enters the unit again. A normal operating cycle for Sanivite can be as short as 2-10 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration, power consumption is therefore minimal.

In addition to sinks, Sanivite will also accept and discharge the waste water from a variety of other sanitary fixtures, such as; a hand basin, a shower, a bath, a urinal and possibly a whirlpool. When adding a shower or bathtub, a base will have to be constructed, made out of 2" x 6" on edge, to allow for the installation of a P-trap and some gravity flow towards the pump unit, as it does not suck in water.

The waste water from other sanitary fixtures is discharged into Sanivite via two 1 1/4-inch inlets, on either side of the housing. Either one or both inlets can be used as required. The discharge elbow on top of the Sanivite can be turned either to the left or to the right, depending on the discharge installation. The Sanivite may be vented, there is a 1 ½-inch connection on the top of the unit. The discharge pipe size may be made from 1-inch material.

The Sanivite is small enough to fit comfortably inside a kitchen cabinet or vanity or inside the overhang of a whirlpool. Electrical supply to the Sanivite is 120V, 15 Amp. The system should be connected to a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter circuit.
