Macerating toilet systems
The 2018 International Residential Code (IRC), published by the International Code Council (ICC) defines a macerating toilet system as: ‘A system comprised of a sump with macerating pump and with connections for a water closet and other plumbing fixtures that is designed to accept, grind and pump wastes to an approved point of discharge.’
Macerating toilet systems may be referred to as upflush toilets. They are sometimes used in situations where there is a need to install a toilet in a location that is below grade level (such as in a basement) or where it is difficult to connect a toilet to the waste water network. It is necessary to have a water supply and an electrical outlet in order to install a macerating toilet system.
