Saniflo makes Grand design possible




Saniflo’s expertise in plumbing products for tiny spaces helped to turn a design engineer’s house dreams into a Grand Design reality.

Joe Stuart of Joe Stuart Industrial Design built a tiny house for him and his girlfriend to live in, one that was then featured on TV show Grand Designs in early 2017.

The 38sq m plot was converted into a two bedroom, two-bathroom property, which involved digging down to form a basement and building six half floors.

The first bathroom is gravity fed, whilst the second – originally designed as a laundry – sits half a floor down from street level and required a pump to take the waste to the discharge point. The industrial design wetroom features a shower, basin and WC each feeding into a Saniflo Sanicubic Pro 2 macerating pump situated directly beneath the wall hung WC in the basement. The pump will also take waste from a washing machine which will be sited in the basement and has additional outlets for the connection of future appliances.

Saniflo UK head of marketing and product development, Ann Boardman, says: “What Joe has achieved with the Grand Designs tiny house is incredible and whilst his design was workable without the Sanicubic, he was able to install that all-important second bathroom with it adding value to his home. It also enabled him to site his washing machine in the basement rather than elsewhere in the property.”
