The Sanibest Pro from Saniflo UK is helping the Eastbourne residents provide services from a four-storey Art Deco building in the centre of the town.

The Sanibest Pro is a heavy-duty macerator for public or commercial environments. As temporary custodians of the building, the Living Life Eastbourne charity provides a community hub, including an affordable café, which required a new, accessible WC, basin and baby-changing unit. Access to mains drainage would have meant digging up a solid concrete floor, creating an expensive, time-consuming inconvenience.

The solution was a powerful Sanibest Pro; the robust unit caters to public space demands. Installed behind the WC, the pipework runs behind a false wall and travels up and across the corridor’s ceiling behind the newly created bathroom, dropping into a gravity-fed drainage pipe and drain connecting to a street-level sewer.

Living Life Eastbourne was designated as a warm space during the winter, which helped residents who couldn’t afford to heat their homes, and it’s also recently been designated as a safe space for the Eastbourne Carnival. It’s a meeting space for community groups and offers a friendly, welcoming space for the homeless and those who live alone.

The Sanibest Pro from Saniflo can pump up to 7m vertically or 110m horizontally. In the Living Life café in Eastbourne, it combines both; lifting the waste 3m and pumping it across approximately 10m, where the waste falls into a soil stack.
