Saniflo Canada, one of the leaders in macerating toilet systems, is pleased to feature the SANICOMPACT and SANISTAR, two eco-friendly toilets that help reduce water consumption. Both products utilize a dual flush system, which uses approximately 38% less water per flush than a low-flush toilet, which not only contributes to helping the environment, but also increases the Return On Investment (ROI) on any home.

According to Environment Canada, a low-flush toilet uses approximately 6 litres of water per flush. Assuming that each person uses four flushes per day, that translates into nearly 9,000 litres per person per year. For a family of four, that's nearly 36,000 litres of water per year. Although this amount of water is considerably lower than the amount used in a standard toilet, you can save even more water with Saniflo's SANICOMPACT and SANISTAR. Both of these products use only 4 litres of water per flush, saving approximately 3,000 more litres of water per person. For a family of four, this saves approximately 12,000 litres per year.

"Less water equals lower bills," says Daniel Cayer, National Sales Manager, Saniflo Canada. "With the SANICOMPACT and SANISTAR, you use less water in comparison to a conventional toilet system; therefore, you spend less on your water bills and increase your ROI for your home."

In addition to spending less on water, Saniflo's eco-friendly products increase ROI with its low installation costs. Since these systems eliminate the need for a rough-in they allow homeowners to install a full bathroom for a fraction of the cost.

Inspired by European design in bathroom appliances, the SANICOMPACT and wall-hung SANISTAR both add a unique style to any bathroom or spa-inspired environment. Both designs are fully equipped to add sophistication and style to any renovation, while relying on the latest leading edge technology.

Why maceration? Macerating technology is a cost-effective, easy-to-install solution for both residential and commercial bathroom applications. The systems use a fast-rotating blade to liquefy waste and toilet paper in the flush water, which is then discharged under pressure through small-bore piping to a drainage line or soil stack.

Saniflo macerating toilet systems can be installed on top of any finished floor eliminating the need for excavation of the existing floor or building a raised floor to install a drain line, as required by systems using a sewage ejector. The small-bore discharge piping can easily be installed and concealed inside existing walls. Saniflo's "up-flush" technology permits home or building owners to create a new bathroom wherever it is most convenient: in a basement, attic, garage, under the stairs or inside a newly remodeled space.

Saniflo's parent company, SFA Group in Paris, France, developed macerating technology nearly a half-century ago and led its commercialization over the following decades. SFA began selling these unique plumbing fixtures in Europe in 1958, taking the line international in 1965 and entering the North American market in the late 1980s.

SANIFLO CANADA offers a complete line of macerating toilet systems and gray water pumping systems for residential and commercial applications. Saniflo products are available at plumbing wholesalers and hardware retailers located throughout the country.
