Turboflush Macerator 550W 240V
Exceptional value for money, cheaper than any other supplier and there was no hassle when I went to collect. As a new customer I was more than satisfied with the overall purchase and will definitely us screwfix again

Quieter than passing wind
I have recently renovated an old semi-detached victorian period property. This is a beautiful house but needed some updating including adding an ensuite. Unfortunately the ensuite was the opposite side of the house to the original bathroom and drainage. A macerator was the only option and this is the product I decided to go for.
After hours of searching it appeared I was going to need to spend Â£400 and more to get what I needed. I then found this macerator on Screwfix for less than Â£300.
It was incredibly easy to install with the push-pipe connections, it drains the sink and the toilet with no problems at all. I was concerned about the noise but it only turns on after flushing and lasts less than 5 seconds.
This is a basic product, but for the money I think there is certainly value and I would recommend this product to others.

After installing this item the sink inlet fitting leaked. Although fully tightened the leak still persisted and was only cured using a silicon sealant.
The unit is extremely noisy in operation. Having no previous experience of macerators I cannot compare with others but anyone should shop around before considering this item

Check when you take delivery..
I bought one of these through ScrewFix about 6 years ago. I took delivery but didn't open the box for aroung 6 months when I eventually got around to installing it. The internals of housing plastics and some of the external clips were damaged/broken, so as I'd had the thing for so long I thought I would repair, rather than try to argue with ScrewFix. Did a good job and the unit has worked fine, although it's not had much use.
It's now stopped working, so rather than try to repair or get it serviced I'm now about to purchase another macerator - it would be great if ScrewFix were to look favourably on me and offer a discount?
BE WARNED, always check delivery for any breakages on the day you receive it!!!
