I spend a lot of time in my garage workshop and working in the yard. Since I am over age 60 I have to make frequent trips to the bathroom. (I'm sure some of you guys can relate to this!) We do not have a bathroom near the rear entry from the garage, so that means I must walk through the house in my dirty clothes and shoes over the carpet to any of our bathrooms. What a PITA!!
I'd like to add a small toilet room in the garage. I have enough space. I'm trying to figure out how to get a drain line in. I don't know where the main sanitary drain line is. There may be a sanitary line on the outside of the garage wall. I do know that I have a sanitary vent pipe in the garage wall within about 20 ft. of the area where I would like to build this room. I really don't want to saw up the garage floor to put a line in. I can get a water supply with no problem, and I would plan to put a small electric heater in the room to keep it just above freezing in the winter time.
What are my options for a drain line? Could I use a toilet with a built-in pump to get it to the drain?
There are probably other considerations also.
I can handle the electrical stuff, but plumbing is another issue!
Any suggestions??
