In response to Re: Toilet in the basement
: I am interested in having a toilet in my basement, but am not sure how it would be done. I have city water and the pipes appear to be located in the concrete floor of my basement. Should I break the concrete to tap into the line, or could I use an upward flushing toilet and access the pipes I can see? Do I need a vent? How would all of this be accomplished? Thanks for the help, Joe

Yes you will need to take up concrete.
Everything needs to be vented.
A basement bathroom install is a big job and probably not a good first plumbing project. You may want to do the "labor" part of the job--removing the concrete and dirt necessary and opening the walls needed to get the vent to the roof--and hire a plumber to run the drainage, vent and water lines.
