Installing toilet above horizontal above ground waste pipe


Hello,

I'd like to install a bathroom in my basement. My waste pipe however is 5 3/4 inches above the slab. This measurement is to the middle of the pipe. I'm looking into options such as wall mounted and rear discharge toilets, however I can't find any information on whether or not this would solve my problem.

Relocating the waste pipe below slab isn't a realistic option I'm afraid. Would anyone know if I could use a rear discharge toilet with a 90 degree drop directly into my waste pipe, or with a drop and turn at some type of angle.

Same questions re: the rear discharge toilet.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Alex

check the web for rear outlet toilets. they still make them and i have put a few in over the years. i think the outlet on them is only around 4 inches off the floor. the other option is a pump. you can sink the pit into the floor or get one that the tank is actually a small platform that the toilet sits on and flushes right into the tank. they also make toilets that flush up.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking to stay away from any type of pump due to the noise. I've seen the rear discharge toilets, my question is can I go right from it to my waste pipe if the pipe is only a few inches below the discharge on the toilet?

I'm thinking a wall hung toilet, however my issue is that the vertical pipe after the 90 degree drop off the back of the toilet will be very short. I need to know if this will cause a problem or not?


Edit: I've attached a picture of the waste pipe over which I'd like to install the toilet.

This pipe is the waste pipe for the entire house. Connected to it at one point or another is a full bathroom, kitchen sink, laundry tub and washing machine.

It's 3 inches in diameter.

I should add that right past the picture is where the pipe dips under the concrete and leaves the house.
