Adding Basement Bathroom. Rear discharge toilet install question


I want to add a small bathroom in my basement.
My sewer stack exits through the side wall in my basement. About 2" off the ground. There was a cleanout that I unscrewed and tapped into to run my new plumbing. In the picture, the RED highlighted area is original plumbing and the BLUE is what my plumber added.

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

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

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"?

I am thinking considering installing a backflow preventor somewhere but am not sure if I need one. My house is up on a hill so I'm not sure I have to worry about sewage backing in. I also don't know if there is a backflow preventer already installed. The house was built in 1999.

I don't know where you live but in the area that I'm familiar with doesn't allow those tees laying on their sides and the fernco type couplings, I can't see the rest of the pipe clearly

Same here. Also can't have tees on their back either(circled in red)
If that floor is above the sewer manhole you don't need a backwater valve. You don't have space with that layout anyways.
Whats the 2x11/2 tee for?

You need to have talk with your plumber. I see about 5 violations.
Did he pass inspection?

Adding Basement Bathroom. Rear discharge toilet install question


I'm pretty much going to do the same thing in my basement. The difference
being mine will be done the right way I hope. I want to do this the most
inexpensive way possible, and I know (diddly) about backflush toilets. Can I
get a little input on this.

It's an old thread/post from 2011. If no results, start a new one with new titled.
