Sanicon Turbo PSA

Good morning from Palm Desert. I recently went through the Spartan/Entegra Class at NIRVC. First off, amazing people, training and service at NIRVC is second to none. I had a question from the first day of ownership on when to turn the pump off on the Sanicon macerator. Without naming names I was getting mostly "Turn it off when you hear the deep grinding noise and the the tank shows empty" . However, I asked PJ from Entegra the same question and he told me to let it run through that noise until its mostly silent. So me being me I called Sanicon this morning and and get the answer directly from them (Their manual just says "a different noise" ). The correct answer from Sanicon is PJ's answer. Let it run until it is almost silent. As if it isnt doing anything anymore. Because it isnt..

I hope this helps others.

The noise that my Sanicon system makes is not always a steady tone or noise. When draining the majority of the contents, it clearly is making a more effortful sound, but then with both the Black and gray tanks, as the tank empties, the noise moves up and down. My understanding of that variability was that small amounts of one thing or another were moving more slowly to the macerator pump and thus the surges in sound interspersed with a noise that sounds like the macerator is doing very little. Maybe I have never left it run long enough, but I dont think my pump sound ever gets soft enough to almost not hear it running. Does that really happen?

Strangely, that surging and lowering of sounds is common for both the black and gray tanks equally.... I understand it for the black tank, but fail to understand why that is occurring for the gray tank.

However, all in all, it works great. I'm impressed, and will stay impressed until it fails the first time....
