Houses and homes

Whether building a new home or renovating an old house, sometimes it can be a challenge to place the bathroom exactly where you would like it to be. Jets™ vacuum systems give you total freedom to build the house of your dreams, without having to worry about where to install large diameter pipes that depend on gravity for sewage transport.

Easy installation

Thin vacuum pipes with a diameter of only 50mm (2") transport sewage faster, more efficient and more reliably than a traditional gravity/water system could ever do. The piping can even be installed vertically in thin walls and in ceilings, because vacuum systems are able to lift sewage upward from the toilet. This enables home owners to place bathrooms in basements where a gravity toilet installation would not have been possible.

Small discharge pipes

If the vacuum piping is thin, the discharge pipes that connect our systems to public sewer lines are even thinner. In house and home installations a 32mm (1-1/4") pipe is usually installed. Because all sewage is macerated to a fine pulp in our Vacuumarator™ pumps before discharge, there is no clogging of the pipes despite their small diameter. And just like the vacuum piping, discharge pipes can lift sewage to a higher level.

Vacuum On Demand (VOD™) or Constant Vacuum System (CVS™)?

Small systems totalling less than 4 toilets and/or greywater interface tanks can be installed as VOD™ systems. Larger systems should be installed as a Constant Vacuum System solution, maintaining vacuum in the pipes at all times. If in doubt, consult a Jets™ dealer to help you with system design.
