In response to Re: Toilet drain in concrete floor

: I am putting in a half bath on the ground level of my split-level house. The toilet drain will be under the floor for 16" (rough-in + wall thickness) before it comes back out in the basement. The floor is concrete and needs to be dug up at the location for the drain. Will a small handheld electric hammer be enough to do this job or will I need to rent the big style that you stand up to operate? Any special requirements for filling in trench after 3" PVC pipe is installed?

John,
I think you want to either rent the 60 pound electric jack hammer or hire a saw cutter to cut and demo the concrete. Most of the time, I hire someone with the diamond blade saw cutter, he has his own demo hammer that he brings with him. It's a much cleaner way of doing it. The concrete pour is easier too.
