You would have to raise it at least 6" to cover the pipes and make a proper connection at the toilet. However, are you sure you have the proper "lift station" for it. A washing machine would only have needed a sump pump and an open basin with a loose fitting lid. the same system for a toilet would require a sealed basin with a vent and an ejector pump. Due to the added cost of an ejector system, I would doubt that one was installed in your basement, especially since the bathroom piping was not installed at that time.

: We are wanting to put a bathroom in our basement. We have a lift station already because we previously had our washer and dryer there. We've talked to a plumber about breaking up the concrete and laying the lines, tying into the existing pump. Now my brother in law comes along and says we should skip the plumber and install a false floor and lay the lines under the floor. I am unsure about this, besides I don't want the bathroom to look "added on" or amateurish, I don't want to have to step up into the bathroom What does anyone here think? Thanks!
