A: This pump is typically used to pump sewage up to a point where it enters a 4” waste line. However to assess its appropriateness for you application you need to determine the height of the lift. If you scroll down the Home Depot product listing page you will come to as section entitled Product Details where you will find PDF’s of the product documents. If you open the brochure it indicates that this pump, when installed with the Saniflo toilet is good for lifts of 25’ or less and runs of 150’ or less.
A: Plumbing codes fall under state law. So there are 50 different sets of rules. I can not give you a definitive answer. I would suggest you speak to either a qualified licensed plumber or the code enforcement professional in your town. In my state you technically need a permit to change a screen door, and the inspector takes the job serious. So in my area the question would be a definite yes. However yours could be different. You would need to ask the authority directly to get a definitive answer.
A: We have a Toilet, Shower and Vanity sink attached to this pump in August 2021 and so far it is working well.
A: I am not sure what you mean by a "Laundry Drain". I have some guesses but I don;t want to make assumptions that result in problems so allow me to attempt to answer this a little differently. Washing machines have pumps inside them that pump out the water. You can not put pumps in series. Meaning you do not pump into a pump, Why? Its kind of hard to explain without getting lengthy. But you would have venting issues where sewer gas, which is very dangerous could get into the home, along with potential flooding and cross contamination. But you could have the washing machine drain into a laundry sink that was properly piped and vented to this unit. The sink would act as what we call an air gap and would provide storage of the loads of water that the washing machine will discharge quickly. All this assumes the height you are pumping is within the parameters of the unit. As always I would speak to either a local licensed plumber, who knows the code in your area or the inspector in your town, Keep in mind when a sewage pump is thoughtfully specified and installed it will give you years of dependable service. When not it will be a constant annoyance.
A: Technically you can, however I've had mine installed less than 3 years and it routinely stalls out. I've had the outlets tested and am currently waiting on my 6th repair call for this unit. I would advise you to look at other systens,
A: You can connect 3 drains into this pump. Toilet drain plus two more, so one of the two can be used for the washer drain. I connected mine to the toilet, shower and sink in a guest bathroom. (If you want to connect only the washer drain and nothing else you need a different pump)
A: No alarm included, however one can be purchased from manufacturer - owners guide has information.
A: No it does not have an alarm. Not sure if one could be installed, I don't know where you would install it.
A: Saniflo does offer a high water alarm for their macerators. It carries Saniflo product number 050. The Home Depot offers it on their web site under SKU 206262172. If you put that number in the search block on their web site; it will come up.
