- Cut the power supply to the macerator and pour bleach or household disinfectant into the toilet.
- Flush the toilet, so that the disinfectant moves to the macerator, and stays there till the power is switched on. Let it soak in the bleach or disinfectant for about two hours.
- Turn on the power; the macerator will agitate the water in it and pump it out, so that the lines are disinfected.
The macerator system is effective and useful for houses where gravity cannot be used to remove waste, due to the location of the toilet or the solid waste line. Routine cleansing with disinfectants ensures its longevity, though blockages that occur in rare occasions can be troubleshot and solved.
