SaniVite 0.4 HP 115-Volt Heavy Duty Drain Pump - 008
The SaniVite is a drain pump that is ideally suitable for use in a basement apartment or anywhere in the house where additional fixtures are most wanted. It will pump waste water away from a variety of sources such as: a kitchen sink, laundry sink, washing machine (indirect connection), dishwasher, bar sink, etc. The SaniVite model was designed to sustain the toughest applications meant for gray water pumps. Its pumping capabilities and unique design are the reason why these range of pumps are preferred for heavy duty applications. The inside of the SaniVite is comprised of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the pump. When the water enters the SaniVite, it activates a micro switch in the pressure chamber, which in turn starts the motor. The motor is sealed for life in an oil filled enclosure. A spindle/shaft drives the impeller and therefore the moving parts are kept to an absolute minimum. Water enters the chamber and is pumped away into the sanitary sewer. The unit pumps the effluent upward to 16 ft. and/or 150 ft. horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the micro switch deactivates the unit until water enters the unit again. A normal operating cycle for the SaniVite can be as short as 2 to 10 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
