Prepare the Macerating Unit
With a macerating system, the bowl clears through a discharge line into a tank. The tank houses a pump that macerates, or separate, the contents from the bowl then pushes them out.
Prepare the macerating pump system by pushing the flapper check assembly into the opening. Make sure that the flapper assembly faces in the same direction as the elbow.
Press the elbow onto the connection and secure it with a clamp.
Take advantage of the Vent
To tap into the vent, utilize a reciprocating saw to puncture the pipeline. Put down a ground cloth or make use of a bucket to collect anything that comes out.
Eliminate about a 12″ section of pipeline.
Clean both ends of the old pipe then put rubber adaptors onto the old pipe.
Link the Adaptors
Prep up a 1″ and 1/2″ ‘Y’ with short pieces of PVC so that they’ll span the gap in the pipe; connect the rubber adaptors.
Put the ‘Y’ into location and slide the adaptors over both ends, then firmly tighten down all clamps to avoid leaks.
Screw the Adaptor Into the Cleanout
Next, eliminate the cleanout cover on the drain line.
Keep in mind: Make sure that no one is utilizing the sink throughout this procedure or sewage could come out of the open pipe.
As soon as the cap is off, established a threaded male adaptor with a 3/4″ reducer. Coat the threads on the male adaptor with Teflon paste and screw it into the cleanout. Make use of a plumber’s wrench to make sure the adaptor is tight.
Attach the Bowl
Initially, link the accordion seal to the bowl of the macerating system then anchor the bowl to the floor using the anchoring holes.
Connect the Unit to the Sewer Line
Note: Before hooking up the toilet to the macerator, it’s a great idea to hook up the macerating system to the sewage system line. To do this, run a discharge line off the flexible 90 on top of the macerator pump. Bear in mind that this line is called a pressure favorable line, meanings that when the pump kicks on, the line will be charged with pressure. Ensure the system is rated to stand up to the pressure.
Link the Pipes
Set up lengths of 3/4″ PVC pipeline and a 90 to head out of the wall.
Then, place the pipe into the versatile 90 on the macerator and firmly tighten down the clamp.
Rotate the pipeline parallel to the wall then drill into the wall at the end of the pipeline.
Adjust the length of the discharge line if essential and glue it to the 90. Then put the pipeline through the wall.
Run the Discharge Line
Next, continue running the discharge line and link the ball valve as close to the macerator as possible.
Then, continue running the line aiming to decrease the number of 90 degree turns with 45’s where possible.
Also, make certain that the line is on a slightly downhill angle to where it use the drain.
Usage pipeline hangers to protect the line and if the pipe is in a cold location, see to it to insulate.
Run a Vent Line
Note: In North America, it is a requirement to run a vent line from the macerator to the outdoors. This will assist avoid what’s called ‘air lock’ and will certainly keep the pump running efficiently for a long time. There might be an existing vent in your house to tap into, or a regional vent that rises through the walls and outside through the roofing might have to be run.
Start by blocking off the breather opening in the macerating system with the two provided caps.
Make use of a reciprocating saw to cut the cover off the dome then slide the supplied accordion connector over the lip. Clamp it down firmly.
Install a 1″ and 1/2″ street 90 into the adapter. Mark where the 90 intersects with the wall, and eliminate the 90.
Utilize a hole saw to cut through the wall. Put the street 90 back in and secure it with a clamp.
Now, continue to run 1-1/2″ PVC to link into the tap made earlier. Usage PVC hangers to secure the line.
Run the Cold Water Line to the Toilet
After shutting off the water and alleviating the pressure, use a pipeline cutter to cut into the water line.
Remove about 2″ from the water line and install a ‘T’.
Attach a short piece of pipeline to the ‘T’ then add a ball valve.
Usage standard soldering strategies to extend the line and connect into the pipeline that was executed the wall previously.
Protect the Connections
Start by topping off any ports that will certainly not be made use of.
To set up for a sink connection, cap off a piece of 1-1/2″ PVC and connect it into the supplied accordion connection.
Secure all connections with clamps.
Step 12: Set up the Toilet
To set up the toilet, set the clamp onto the toilet’s discharge outlet (Image 1).
Next, place the bowl in front of the macerating system and pull the accordion gasket all the way onto the discharge outlet.
Thoroughly examine the gasket and make sure that it’s even all around which the clamp rests over the edge of the gasket, then tighten down the clamp.
Once the bowl is over the holes in the floor, slip the china protectors over the lag screws.
Then, tighten up the lag screws bewaring not to over-tighten them. Snap the bolt covers into location.
Make the Final Connections
Set up the toilet tank by lining up the gasket and tank bolts (Image 1). Once more, beware not to over-tighten.
Set up the seat.
Attach a stainless-steel flex line from the bowl to the valve (Image 2) and switch on the water to check for leakages.
All plumbing connections are completed and it’s time to plug the device in. Switch on the water and test out the system.
