Basement bathroom built around existing floor drain


I hope you all are well!

I have an existing floor drain in my basement, and I am wondering whether or not I can tap off of it to install a toilet and shower. I am in the early stages of planning this project, so any advice or comments are mOre than welcome.

Probably not. Floor drains are usually 2" pipe and a toilet will require 3". However, a pump could possibly be used. More info and pictures will help us give you some ideas.
