basement sink drain


I want to install a bar sink in my basement. Is there anyway to run the drain other than cutting the floor and installing a line to the riser?

The riser is approx. 25ft from the sink. The bar has not been installed and everything is in the design stage at this time.

they make sump pumps that fit under the sink. You could hook that up and run the 3/4" line to the drain and drill in a saddle or cut in a wye.

google it, you'll find them. way easier than cutting the floor.

or, if it is an option, move the bar in the are of the stack, so you coud just cut a tee in the stack and run the line under the bar, as for water lines not sure if you have any exposed in the floor joist above your head.

Thanks to you both. I have seen the sump pumps for under the sink and will most likely use that. Home Depot has them on thier sight. I'll just need to take a actual look at them in thier store if they have them. As for the water lines I have a cold line directly above and will need to tap into the hot and run a line to the sink.
