More Plumbing Advice... Will this Work?

Default More Plumbing Advice... Will this Work?

I'm installing a toilet on my basement and purchased a rear discharge toilet by Caroma..

http://www.caromausa.com/products/in...products72.php

In the picture below, I tied into the main house discharge about 2 inches from the floor. I extended the pipe out (4" PVC going to 3" PVC). Total distance from house drain to back of toilet is about 2 feet. I have the proper slope in that 2 foot section... About 1 inch over 2 feet.
Do you think I'll run into drainage issues from the toilet? Even with the largest "# 2's"?

Thanks!

off your question, but where are the wallcoverings and flooring going to be...above all of those pipes, including the one that is attached to the stud instead of going through it?

Not busting your chops, just curious.

I'm going to box that whole pip assembly in. I'm currently building a frame for it (about 1 foot high). The top will be a removable "shelf" so I can gain access to the plug at the end should the need arise. Actually, looking at it now, I may redo that last section of pex tubing going to the toilet and run it through the stud.. Not sure what I was thinking initially... Sometimes another mind helps!! Thanks!

You can take the toilet flange back.

I would rethink about that piping scheme, rent a jackhammer and get all the plumbing below the floor level.

Can you explain why? If I don't need to, I'd rather not jackhammer into my foundation. Also, I wanted to stay away from having to build up the floor in the bathroom because its rather small. About 4'x7'

Jackhammer the floor and dig until you can fit the plumbing fits below it. Then pour some cement over it till you are level with the existing floor.

You will also need to make additional plumbing changes at the stud and base..

I have never seen a plumbing set up like the one you posted.

It appears to me that would be a bad idea.

Does the picture not show the new drain in line with the house discharge?

IE: Took out 90 and installed Y.

Actually it looks like the y was there, just removed thread plug from flush out and installed threaded coupling.

The picture below shows what was there in RED and what I installed in BLUE. The main house drain exits out to the street about 2 inches off the ground and parallel to the floor (exits through the wall). The main had a screw in cap which I unscrewed and added my assembly.

That is what I thought.

If even possible, it would be a LOT of work to put the plumbing under the floor.

I guess I like to do things right, even if it means additional work. Just saying....

Me too.

But in this case you need a whole lot more info before you could say "dig it up".

It may not even be possible.

So please explain how putting in a new toilet drain BELOW where the sewer exits from the building is the RIGHT way to do it

Sorry, but I am not a plumber but the plumbing looks sloppy to me. Perhaps more pics would show how the proposed setup is the best solution.

That said, installing plumbing lines on the outside of wall studs is also sloppy work.
