The more economical M200 model is designed especially for a half-bathroom application that can be installed up to 9 feet below the sewer line, or even up to 80 feet away from a soil stack. The M200 can handle the effluent from a toilet and hand-basin.
The M200 is simplicity itself to install; there are just four connections.
• The macerator is connected to the spigot of a horizontal rear discharge toilet.
• The toilet tank is connected to the water supply.
• The macerator is connected to the small diameter discharge pipe work.
• The macerator is connected to the electrical supply.
The inside of the M200 comprises of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the stainless steel macerator blades and the pump.
When the flush is activated, the water flowing into the M200 activates a micro switch in the pressure chamber, which in turn starts the motor. The motor is sealed for life in an oil filled enclosure. A common spindle/shaft drives the impeller and the macerator blades. The moving parts therefore are kept to an absolute minimum. Water and organic waste matter enter the chamber and are reduced to slurry as the macerator blades rotate at 3600 RPM. The centrifugal force causes the reduced solids to be ejected through a grill into the container where it is picked up by the impeller pump mounted beneath the motor.
The unit pumps the effluent upward to 9 feet and/or 80 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the micro switch deactivates the unit until the flush is activated again. A normal operating cycle for the M200 takes about 10 – 15 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
In addition to the toilet waste, the M200 will also discharge gray water from an additional fixture such as: a handbasin. Note that the required gravity flow towards the pump unit needs to be 1/4″ per foot.
The wastewater from the hand-basin is discharged into the M200 via a 1-1/2-inch inlet on the top of the unit. The discharge elbow on top of the M200 can be turned either to the left, to the right, or towards the back, depending on the discharge installation. A non-return valve, which comes already assembled on the discharge elbow, prevents back flow into the unit.
This unit has been designed with a vent connection on the lid. All plumbing codes require connection to a vent system. Please note that the vent system should be a two-way air vent. The use of mechanical vents, air admittance valves or similar devices are not permitted as these are considered one-way air vent systems.
It is also highly recommended for the macerator/pump to be connected to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
The M200 unit must be connected to our rear discharge toilet. This system uses much less water than a regular toilet as it only uses 1.6 USG (6 liters) of water per flush. Note: This toilet only works in combination with the M200.
The M200 has been certified to American and Canadian Standards. Macerating standards; US: ASME A112.3.4, CA: Macerating Standard CSA B45.9
All items may be purchased separately. However, the M200 works as a system and therefore a toilet bowl, toilet tank and the macerating unit need to be purchased. An optional extension pipe is available for the pump to be installed behind the wall. No toilet seat, cabinets, etc.
