Lift System delivers Clog-Free Pumping for Commercial & Residential Structures


Equipped with a single, 1.5- horsepower motor, the new lift station is capable of discharging effluent through either a two-inch or four-inch rigid pipe and offers a shut-off head of 43 feet.

“The vortex technology of the Sanicubic 1VX sets the bar even higher with its ability to handle materials that should not end up in a toilet — foreign objects, small rocks, large pieces of debris, and so forth,” says Regis Saragosti, CEO of Saniflo USA.

Vortex technology

The Sanicubic 1VX use a specially-designed pump impeller to create a vortex action as the effluent enters the lift station enclosure. This technology keeps solids away from the impeller as it turns, pushing waste rapidly through the pump and to the discharge pipe. In doing so, the possibility of clogging is substantially reduced.

137 GPM flow rate

The maximum height the simplex pump can discharge is 36 feet, using a two-inch diameter pipe; and 20 feet, using a four-inch pipe. Flow rates vary, depending on the discharge-pipe diameter and the application’s elevation head, but can achieve 26 gallons per minute (gpm) at 36 feet of head with a two-inch pipe. The pump is designed to work with either a municipal sewer system or a septic tank.  The durable, waterproof enclosure meets IP68 standard, making it possible for the system to remain fully operational when submerged in water.

Dimensions for the Sanicubic 1VX (capacity: 15.9 gallons) are 27-5/8 inches wide, 21-5/8 inches deep, and 19-7/8 inches high. 

“White-glove” servicing 

Featuring easily removable circular panels on top, the IP68 enclosure permits ready access to every major component inside. The result is easier and much cleaner servicing than conventional, below-floor systems whose maintenance can entail wading into a pit full of waste.

The Sanicubic 1VX employs an internal air pressure switch for automatically cycling the unit on and off. The unit also comes equipped with a wired control panel, as well as an external audible and visual LED indicator alarm in the event that a pump experiences overload or ceases to operate.
