The Advantages of Installing a Kitchen Sink with Saniflo

When it comes to home renovations, your dream home layout often clashes with the constraints posed by existing plumbing systems. This was precisely the dilemma faced by Maurice and Margaret Watson when they decided to relocate their kitchen to a discreet corner room in their heritage-listed apartment to take advantage of their stunning view over the Sydney Harbour. In this blog post, we'll explore the remarkable solution they found with Saniflo SFA and discuss the advantages, as inspired by their case study.

The Challenge: Strict Heritage Building Plumbing Restrictions

Maurice and Margaret's objective was clear: they wanted to move their kitchen from the main living area to a room in the corner of their apartment. However, the project hit a major roadblock in the form of strict heritage regulations that specified the original plumbing couldn't be relocated or extended. These restrictions left them with no viable options for proceeding with conventional plumbing.

The Saniflo SFA Solution: Sanivite Grey Water Pump

To overcome this challenging situation, the Watsons turned to Saniflo SFA’s innovative plumbing solutions. To solve their dilemma, the Sanivite greywater pump was specified. A compact yet powerful unit, the Sanivite would enable them to install a sink and dishwasher in their desired kitchen location. By doing so, they effectively transformed the corner room into a functional kitchen space with their dream kitchen view of Sydney Harbour, all without violating their heritage building restrictions.

Key Benefits of Installing a Kitchen Sink with Saniflo

Non-Invasive Plumbing Complies with Heritage Building Restrictions:

Saniflo SFA’s greywater pumps, like the Sanivite used in this case, offer non-invasive plumbing solutions that comply with even the strictest heritage building regulations. It allows homeowners to work around existing plumbing limitations while preserving the historical integrity of the property.

Enables Installation of Essential Appliances:

The Sanivite grey water pump is a versatile solution that enables the installation of not only sinks and dishwashers but also washing machines, showers, or baths in rooms where traditional plumbing access is limited or nonexistent. This flexibility empowers homeowners to design home spaces of their dreams, without the constraints of traditional plumbing.

Heavy-Duty Pumping Capability:

Saniflo SFA’s pumps, including the Sanivite, can handle demanding tasks. The Sanivite can efficiently push wastewater upward to a height of up to 5m or horizontally for distances of up to 50m, or a lesser combination of both, to reach the mains. This robust performance is particularly valuable in situations where conventional plumbing is impractical.

Compact Design for Tight Spaces:

Saniflo SFA’s products are designed with versatility in mind. Their compact and space-saving design allows for installation in tight spaces, making them suitable for a wide range of applications, including heritage buildings with limited room to maneuver. In this case, the Sanivite was discreetly hidden away in a cupboard, allowing installation of this dream space without compromising on design.

Enhancing Everyday Life

The installation of Saniflo SFA's solutions not only enabled the Watsons to relocate their kitchen but also enhanced their overall living experience. By moving the kitchen to their desired location, they achieved a better flow throughout their apartment, creating a lighter and brighter living space. They also now enjoy a breathtaking view of the Harbor while washing dishes, thanks to the flexibility of Saniflo SFA's plumbing solutions.

As well as their kitchen renovation, the Watsons also used a Saniflo SFA product, the Sanipack, to create an ensuite off the main bedroom and a powder room next to the main living area, further enriching the functionality and aesthetics of their apartment.

The Watsons' case study illustrates how Saniflo SFA's innovative plumbing solutions can overcome the most challenging constraints in home renovations, including strict heritage building regulations.
