: If by "maybe not the way the plumbers would do it" you mean "in violation of most plumbing codes", it's possible--the pipes will fit together the way you describe and the urine will probably flush down the drain instead of onto your feet. It's almost certainly illegal for several reasons others have already mentioned.


Geez...what a tough won't meet code...I suppose that's a good reason not to do it because I assume the UPC or IPC have some rational basis for the regulations...I just thought that perhaps somebody could explain it to me...and you know....the more I think about it...which is what I like to do...the hook-up would be nearly identical to the upstairs drains...they all run into the same stack...albeit at a 2" opening instead of the clean-out...but heck, that's not a real difference of any consequence. You see, when you aren't a plumber...and the plumbers can't give a rational explanation, just makes me think that maybe there really isn't anything "wrong" with it...might be in poor taste...might be different...etc. but it would work just fine. Yankee ingenuity isn't what it used to be. I guess I'll just call my plumber and have him put in a toilet. Thanks for all the friendly advice....
