upflush toilets, and sewage ejection systems


I have a half bath in my basement with a normal toilet. I have a sink, washer and dryer. The toilet connects to the main drain below the concrete floor but the sink, washer and dryer are drained above the floor hidden behind a wall. I am thinking about installing a shower and was told I need a sewage injection system to do this if I do not want to be chopping up the floor. My question is, sewage ejection systems require the digging of a sump, so what would be the point? I still have to dig up the floor to do it...is it possible to put the pump "in line" so I don't have to dig up the floor. I also assume I would need some sort of mascerator to chop up hair.
you can email me..

upflush toilets, and sewage ejection systems


Skrimpy .....I sent you an email (through this forum) about a low-profile sewage ejector system.
No digging needed, as long as you have some headroom... Here it is:

I believe that there are a few other manufactures out there who also put out a similar pump. If you don't try ordering one direct, then look at a plumbing supply house.


Good Luck....
