Add a toilet upstairs, connect plumbing to current toilet?


Here is my problem. I have a flip house that upstairs has 2 bedrooms one of which is the master that shares bathrooms. It's terrible. My question is can I add a toilet and make a new bathroom, and tie in the new toilet to the existing toilets plumbing? Is that possible or against code? I have the ability to have the. Litterraky next to each other with just a wall to separate..

Thank you for your answers. I very much appreciate your time.

I had a hard time understanding your post--With limitations, you can put more than one toilet on the stack but not on the existing toilet arm

Add a toilet upstairs, connect plumbing to current toilet?


Sorry to be more clear. Upstairs has one bathroom that 2 bed rooms share. It's quite possibly the worst design ever. However, the actual sqft of the bathroom is HUGE. I'd like to take the huge bathroom and turn it into 2 bathrooms. The problem is adding a toilet.

Is there a way to have 2 toilets on the same plumbing line down? If so what is the best way to do this? The toilets can be right next to each other literally just divided by a wall.




Hope that is more clear?

Anything is possible.
All you have to do is draw it up on the back of a big enough check.

In that vein... draw it up.

The first toilet drains to a "stack".
How can you get to that stack to extend *another* pipe to the new spot?
What (if anything) is in the way?

I'm doing something like that this spring.
Stealing some space from the kitchen... rearranging the hall bath layout...
then adding a shower to the Master Bath (and a walk in closet).

2 toilets, 2 lavs, move the tub, add a shower (and the kitchen too)
Wanna come help?
