    Hi guys/girls

    In case any of you guys don't know I'm pretty much just a gas man.. so I'm not too clued up of all aspects of plumbing.

    The question I have is what is the highest pump head selling macerator? I kind of need one on my own house as it will probably be the cheapest and quickest option.
    I have found the grundfos sololift2 to be the better one at 6 meters but at that height it will only pump about 8 meters horizontal. I need 6 meters high and about 9 meters horizontal.
    Any ideas? I know everyone hates then but it's for an "I'm in the bloody shower " emergency moment more than a regular use toilet

    Hi Shaun, I don't Sorry, I think I may have just figured it out by looking in their book. It looks like if I run it in 40mm it will go a lot further somewhere in region of 25/30m even though I wouldn't trust it

    Do you have any experience of these ones?

    Just create a water slide with a roding eye in 32 or 40mm

    Great thanks guys, would you do 40mm straight off or work up in 32 and do horizontal 40?

    Think the Grundfos starts in 32 mm for the vertical after that you can use either. It doesn't really matter cos the horizontal won't be full of water.
