This is designed specifically this way to make sure that all the pulped waste can run easily through the small bore pipes that are supplied with the unit. The macerator is able to be installed behind panelling on walls.There is a part of the installation process for the macerator that needs the services of a professionally qualified electrician to fit the electrical supply for the unit.
