A Fine Slurry of Waste

 Macerate: to soften or break into pieces.

 

 

A macerating toilet, also called an upflush toilet system, houses a pump in the tank that chops materials before they are pushed on out the system. A macerating pump creates a fine slurry of waste and paper, sending it directly to the septic or sewer system.  

The macerating pump is a good choice when traditional plumbing just will not work. For instance, a bathroom addition in an under the stairs closet or on concrete flooring such is found in a basement make it difficult to install traditional toilets and require more money and cutting through concrete to install.  Basically, a macerating toilet is a cost effective and more simple solution to your family’s growing bathroom needs!
