    Hi all

    I live in a second floor flat and my toilet needs a macerator. I have bought the Grundfos Sololife 2 CWC-3 wall hung macerator 620W from Screwfix. Grundfos tell me the noise level for this pump is 70dB(A). It cost me £320.

    I bought this a while ago as had to wait for the builders, so now would be difficult to return.

    However, I am desperate to do right by my neighbours and want the quietest solution. My old building is like a tin can.

    I see that Saniflo do a similar type to the one i want, much more expensive and i think a newer model the Sanipack Pro Up. It says the Bruit is 48dB(A). This will cost me at least £400.

    I have a floating chipboard floor on top of joists. The builders tell me they are going to put some underlay down and screw the mascerator to the floor. Can they do more?

    Can anyone please advise me, should i make the change. Will this make a significant difference? Are these noise ratings really comparable?

    Thank you to any kind, informed person who can help me!

    Leigh

    Bruit ? What branch of medicine are you in?

    Stick with what you`ve brought, just follow the instructions re installation.

    I'm just reading what is on the website. Not in medicine.
    It would really appreciate it if you could share with me why you are giving me this advice, so i can understand your thinking.

    Grundfos is a good pump correctly installed and used.
    To sell it you would loose money.
    I don`t believe everything I read.
    I`ve yet to hear the new Saniflo Up range as they are so new on the market.
