Up-Flush Toilets


The only way for me to place a toilet in the basement, without breaking up the basement floor and incurring great costs, is the option of an Up-flush toilet.

I have heard good and bad about these toilets. Does anybody one of these and if so, have they incurred many problems? If so, what? Is there any brands that they would recommend? Is there anything I should question before getting one installed? Are there common problems with these type sof toilets?

Any helpful advice or opinions would be appreciated.

Code says that you must use a gravity drain unless it is impossible. Since you are able to get to a gravity drain by breaking up the concrete, you have no choice and can not use an up flush toilet.

Up-Flush Toilets


Not only would I need to break up the concrete, bt I would also need to excavate the whole up to the street since the sewer line is about 4 feet up from basement floor.

I don't know what code cube17576 is under, but I've never heard of his interpretation. I used to own a home where the sewer line was hung on the basement wall like yours. My research at the time indicated Saniflo was one of the better brands. No personal experience though - sold the house before ever installing one.
