Hi i installed 2 saniplus recently and im having a problem, when the units are flushed the waste is flushed away but the toilet paper remains !. If you leave paper for a minute or so it will flush. I have never seen this before and ive installed dozens of them, any help would be greatly received. Dave

What happens if you use a different brand of paper?

Check the water level in the cistern. You should be able to adjust the level on the fill/ inlet valve. Also most flush valves have a water saving device and could be set to low and only allowing so much water to flush ( especially on manufacturer default settings) photo would be helpful.

Thanks for those answers, i have changed the paper 3 times to the thineest i could find, cistern level is on max, have even glued push buttons together to allow large flush. If i flush aper down with bucket of water it sometimes goes but not everytime. Im confused.

I think bog rolls is considerably thinner these days & everyone doubles up. Nothing worse than 'finger through' & the resulting Turd Finger. I'd ask them to go on a high fibre diet & buy more expensive bog roll. Tell them to let the paper soak a bit before flushing.
Hope that help?

Totally agree about a sani in a pub :shock:
Seen this a few times and often it`s down to the pan itself, proved it to a customer by swoping pans over.
