Your toilet is probably close enough to the stack that there is no venting behind it. Our code doesn't say that you can't run drainage in an outside wall, just that it needs to be protected from freezing. Way easier to do on an inside wall. Can't you run the drain in the wall, behind the toilet, till you reach the stack? Its not going to freeze in the basement


You can have it good, fast or cheap. Pick two.

But to confirm....ALL sinks have to go into a 2" drain? Even bathroom sinks?

I was under the impression it could be 1 1/2".
Bathroom sinks are called lavs by code definition. Their Drainage Fixture Units (DFU) rating is 1. You can pipe them with 1.5"
