A macerator pump like the Dab Genix is a type of pump that is connected to your toilet (or can be included in some macerator toilets) which is able to grind up solid waste so it can then be pumped against gravity more effectively. We will generally find them in homes where you have a basement bathroom. The job of the macerator is to make solid waste liquid, as this is much easier to pump from below ground level into an already existing sewage pipe. For bathrooms that are installed below ground, this is an affordable and relatively easy solution to effectively remove solid waste against gravity.
Once a macerator is installed to your toilet when you flush the toilet, waste will pass through the pump instead of moving directly to the outflow pipes. The macerator will detect the level of water inside the unit and then activate the macerating process. This will cause the inlet valve to temporarily close while the blade does its job to convert solid waste into liquid waste. Once the blades have completed their job, the valves will open up again and the liquid will then be pumped into the outflow pipes.
Also note that a macerator can be installed to other plumbing fixtures like showers, baths, dishwasher and washing machines. There is also no need to compromise on your desired location for your utility as a macerator like the Dab Genix can be installed in a room up to 100m away from the main sewage pipe. It is also able to connect to any bathroom fixture that you may need, and it is extremely simple to connect. On average a macerator should be able to last around 10 years. Though this will be affected if the use that you put the macerator is higher than the expected average.
As the technology has progressed over time macerators that used to be noisy and offputting to some people have now come into their own and are relatively silent, as well as having other great features and benefits. For example, the Dab Genix is provided with everything you need for a quick and easy installation. Fittings with integrated non-return valves, hose clamps, hose adaptors, ground-fixing screws, anti-vibration rubber nubs, and an illustrated quick guide.

To help understand which macerator will be able to suit your needs will largely depend on a few factors. First of all, will it be installed at your home or will it be at a commercial property? Another thing to note is whether it will be close to the main sewer line and also the amount of waste that will be expected to be moved. While people may say that you should be able to do your own research on this, if you do end up needing extra guidance, our team at Pumps2you will be more than happy to help you identify the right products for your needs.
