    Question Installing Saniflo product...

    I plan on installing a Sanistar wall mounted toilet in a bathroom in our basement. The unit has a built-in macerating pump and discharges through a one-inch pipe. I plan on installing a sink in the bathroom and attach it to the unit as well. The spec's. for the unit allows a maximum water temperature of 95 degrees F. My question is, hot water from the water heater is above 95 degrees F. Should I use some type of mixer valve on the hot water side of the sink to prevent temperatures above the toilet's specifications? Thanks.

    The hot water from your sink shouldn't cause any problems under normal circumstances. If you left only the hot on for 15-20 minutes the pump would stop working on thermal overload but would be fine again after it cooled.
