In response to Re: Power toilets
If the trap is obstructed then a pressure toilet will just overflow faster. If the trap is in the line from the toilet, (and it should not be in a proper installation), and there is no vent for the pipe, then the toilet will never flush properly.

: My plumber recommends replacing my existing toilet with a pressure-assisted model to help move waste past a U-joint located under our basement floor. He claims that the pressure assist will move waste up to 60 ft. The U-joint is maybe 30 feet away. Does this sound plausible? We have had flooding in the basement and the U-joint was clogged. However, recently we had backup that fixed itself. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!
