1. What Is a Macerator Toilet? A macerating toilet helps you solve the problem of transferring waste uphill to the sewer when you install a bathroom in a basement or at the bottom of a slope. It macerates -- grinds -- waste and pumps it under positive pressure to the sewer.
2. Not Your Regular Gravity-Flush Toilet Not Your Regular Gravity-Flush Toilet You can recognize a macerating toilet by the presence of a tank on the floor behind the bowl. The toilet's waste outlet is behind it -- not underneath as it is for conventional toilets -- and it connects to the tank. The tank contains macerating blades that reduce all solid waste to liquid form. The tank also contains a pump that transfers the waste to the sewer via a much smaller waste pipe than a conventional toilet uses. When you flush a macerating toilet, the sound of the motor tells you that the unit is working.
3. The Silent Venus is a system that is used to install a complete bathroom up to 19 feet below the sewer line, or even up to 196 feet away from a soil stack. It can handle the effluent from a toilet, sink, bathtub and shower.
