The SANIPUMP® is a reliable and cost-effective wastewater pump - used as a standalone item or as an integral part of a sewage lifting station. It has been specially developed for private and commercial use: it is not intended for pumping rainwater.
With its compact and easy to install design, it can be fitted in an outdoor sump (pumping grey water and black water) or inside a building (pumping of grey water only). Its other main application is inside the waste collection chamber of a sewage lifting station.
Available in both macerating (chopping blades) or vortex (spinning) versions, it has an incredible amount of power but a quiet, unobtrusive operation, making it a perfect solution for glamping and other outdoor settings.
As a general guideline, this unit will pump liquid up to 11m vertically or 100m horizontally – for every 1m of height to be lifted, the pumping distance will reduce by 10m (see our downloads for more technical details).

For use with WC, bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms, glamping, and outdoor leisure sites
Used in Saniflo® sewage lifting stations.
Used to empty Flat Tanks and pump contents away automatically
Used as a standalone pump mounted in a sump / container of your choice - e.g. pumping away from a pit or flood water situation
The pump is fitted with a float switch (the yellow-coloured item in the above left picture) attached to the pump by an electric cable.
It is this float switch, which automatically determines when the pump switches on and off: you will not need to make any adjustments to it.
As liquid levels rise and fall within the chamber in which the pump is used, the float switch rises and falls correspondingly.
When the float switch reaches a factory-defined height / level, an electrical connection is made and the pump starts up.
The effluent is then shredded (by the pump's macerating blades) or churned (by vortex action) and is pumped away through pipework.
The pump will continue to operate, reducing the level of liquid in the tank until the float switch reaches a factory-defined low level, at which point the pump will cut out.

Our plastic, above ground effluent tanks will be suitable for some glamping applications and sites, but not all, we accept that. Our flat, slide under, low environmental impact tanks will be perfect for a range of applications where:
Our robust, plastic effluent tanks solve many issues when capturing liquid waste: they are an excellent off grid solution.
The oldest tanks we have supplied date back to 2010 and are still going strong. The product is rotationally moulded as a one-piece construction from UV-stabilised medium density polyethylene (MDPE) in a ribbed design for added strength. MDPE is particularly suitable for this application as it copes with temperature fluctuations, absorbs knocks, does not absorb smell from the (waste) contents and is easily cleaned. Repairs are rarely needed, but in the unfortunate event of damage, most repairs are readily carried out with a plastic welding tool, similar to a soldering iron.
We supply a range of products ideal for large plastic or effluent tanks.
For a different solution, we also supply a breather kit which creates a flue effect and pulls air from the tank at a 3m height.
Holiday parks specifically purpose-designed and/or glamping sites near to a mains sewer will readily be able to connect up to the waste outlets from glamping units. Septic tanks can be installed as an alternative solution but you will need to consult and apply for planning permission and be ready for groundworks, soakaway to a drain field (for which a “percolation test will be required) and ongoing maintenance charges.

In 2020, it seems that back to basics - type off-grid glamping is very popular. So what options are there to deal with effluent waste?
