Why Do Macerator Pump Services Need to Be Carried Out?
Macerator pumps are a useful system that grinds up solid waste using a rotational blade which in turn breaks the waste into small pieces so that it can be pumped into the main drainage system.
Just like all systems, macerators can breakdown for a number of reasons which is why we have a team of macerator specialist to help repair and fix the problem for you.
First of all, we would like to explain what can cause macerator pumps to require repair services in the first place. One of the main reasons for the macerator needing repairs is that it can simply stop working.
This could be down to the toilet or blade becoming blocked as a result of the wrong materials being flushed down the toilet, such as wet wipes. The blockage may also cause the macerator toilet to constantly flush.
The microswitch on the macerator can also start ‘misfiring’ meaning that the waste can get stuck between the tank floor and switch. The rubber membrane can also become damaged due to the amount of water pressure that is being applied onto the seal.
There are a number of reasons why a macerator pump can breakdown which you can find on our Macerator toilet problems page.
Some of the problems highlighted above can be rectified yourself but this can often lead to the problem becoming worse if not carried out properly which will ultimately mean more expenses and the need for more work to be carried.
If the macerator pump has stopped for any of the reasons highlighted above, then do not use the toilet and make sure you contact one of our fully qualified engineers to get your macerator pump working efficiently again.
