Basement toilet, rear exit or break the slab?
Posted by Barry on January 10, 2003 at 10:14:23:
I'm looking at adding a half bath in our basement. My wife is against the built up "throne" idea, so I'm between
breaking up the slab or installing a rear exit toilet. I think the rear exit option would be cheaper and easier
than the break the slab and dig option. I can access the waste line where it enters the slab not far
from where I want the bath to be. I've never installed a rear exit toilet before, so I'm looking for
any advice on installation and what brand/model toilets are available. If I cut the (3"?) plastic waste line just
high enough to install a "T", would that be too high to use a rear exit toilet? I'm thinking a wall hung would be better
because it would let me decide on the floor after the rough in. Would I need to do a 2x6 or 2x8 wall to do a
wall hung toilet? I'm thinking the commercial look with the flushometer might be nice. Could I hide a captive air tank
near by for this trick?
