Installation Methods

As these toilets are not installed over the drain line, you don’t have to break up the floor. They still need to be bolted down just like the conventional ones. Now, there are two possible methods:

Standard Method

The standard method is installing the maceration chamber behind the bowl. In this method all you need to do is connect the drain on the back to the macerating unit. The downside to this method is that the maceration chamber will detract the looks of your bathroom.

Behind The Wall Method

This method is much more desirable if you want your toilet to blend in your bathroom decor. In order to install your toilet using this method you will need to extend the pipe going from the macerating unit into the back of the toilet. You must do this before enclosing the wall. Still, you need to make sure you can always access the maceration unit. In order to be able to access the maceration chamber leave an access panel.

Dual Flush vs. Single Flush

Dual flush toilets, regardless of whether they are upflush or not, are way better for the environment. With these toilets you can choose between two different flush options, allowing you to save water. Aside from decreasing your water bills, this also helps conserve one of the most precious resources. However, most macerating units out there use a single flush technology.

Porcelain vs. Plastic

Not all the macerating toilets are made out of porcelain and plastic. There are also models made of ceramic and chinaware. However, macerating toilets sometimes tend to look different than the standard ones. Therefore, if you want to get a model that resembles a conventional toilet, you should aim for the porcelain and chinaware.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I Switch All the Toilets in My House to Macerating Toilets?

Definitely not! Macerating toilets are an ideal solution when you want to install a toilet in an unconventional location such as your basement. However, they have pretty sophisticated inner workings inside the maceration unit. Therefore, they will most likely start getting clogged more often as you use them. So, it isn’t that they couldn’t do the job, but why would you take a risk if you don’t need to.

Can These Toilets Grind Things Such As a Chewing Gum or Dental Floss?

Unfortunately, no. What’s more, you should avoid putting anything aside from specialized toilet paper and natural human waste inside them. The mechanism of the maceration unit is quite sensitive. Therefore, anything you flush down the toilet stands a great chance of causing a clog.

Final Thoughts

Macerating toilets are ideal when the standard toilets are not an option. Many have a similar design to the standard ones, aside from the macerating chamber behind them. The INTELFLO-WC53 is the most powerful and water-efficient macerating toilet from this list. It is also stylish and will blend in any bathroom decor. Furthermore, the pump of this unit is also very powerful. Still, if you are looking for something more comfortable, you should take a look at the Liberty Pumps ASCENTII-ESW.
