    I am fitting a toilet into an En Suite bathroom and need to put in 3inch drainage pipe over a distance of about 20feet in the concrete floor what height do I need to drop the pipe in order to ensure the best drainage for the toilet into the sewer outside

    A 2% grade, or 1/4" per foot.

    20 feet = 5" drop

    whats best flushing toilet or mascerator

    I have been told that its best to use the traditional type flushing toilet rather than a mascerator as these tend to get blocked and jam up regularly is this true

    Anytime you can drain your waste by gravity, it's better than pumping it.
