Basement Transformation: From Underground Dirt to Studio Apartment

For this recent home renovation, the clients wanted to build a separate guest space complete with bathroom and kitchenette — a retreat from the main open plan living area which offered limited privacy. They had the perfect spot for it with one exception — located below ground, the area was beneath the sewerage mains, meaning there was no access to connect to the home’s plumbing.

They needed an affordable solution that would provide efficient water disposal without an extensive rework of the home’s plumbing. The Sanicubic 2 Pro WP fit this brief and was specified for the new guest space.

The Sanicubic 2 Pro WP system is a quiet European greywater pump that pushes waste water up to 11m vertically or 110m horizontally to the sewerage and stormwater mains. It is an ideal solution when it comes to providing plumbing access in hard to reach areas.

With the pump discreetly positioned under flooring inside the closet of the new guest area, the homeowners could take full advantage of the space. The pump enabled the installation of a toilet, shower, dishwasher, washing machine and two sinks — everything guests need to be self-sufficient.

Ultimately, specification of the Sanicubic system ensured the build could go on without compromise. “Plumbing was basically impossible without Saniflo,” say the homeowners. “We couldn’t have any water or appliances without them.”
