Bit off a big chunk!


Hey all, Just gutted the basement last weekend, planning on putting in a bath and finishing the rest. Been doing a little research. All I can really find for macerating toilets are Saniflo,(drain is about 4' off the floor) are there any other options and does anyone know where you can get them cheaper? Also looking for whole house tankless water heaters. For the shower I was thinking of going Schulter,(got the idea from you guys ) anyone know roughly how much that stuff costs say for like a 3X3 shower? Couldnt find any prices, found info at Home depot but sometimes I think you would have to be on fire in there to get any help.
Any input would be appreciated.
Thanx

Try these sites for schluter:

www.tileprotection.com

Also, Fine Homebuilding magazine had an article in the March '08 issue on how to plumb a basement bathroom using an ejector pit.

I've never trusted these up flushing macerating toilets. I know many swear by them but it is mechanical and at some point will fail and need maintenance. I vote for cutting up the floor and installing normal drains in.

Thanx for the links, they helped. About cutting the floor, my house is the only one one the block that hasn't had water in the basement! Didn't really want to join them by something I did.
