|In response to Re: adding a basement toilet|
: I have two floor drains in my basement and my main line goes out at about 4ft off the floor.Is there a simple way to add a toilet to one of my floor drains?
: The one I want to use is at an exterior wall. It is about 12-15ft away from my main line.
No, there is NO easy way to use the floor drain for a toilet. There may not even be a hard way. I am a little confused by the fact that the drainage line exits the house 4' off the floor. Are you even sure that the floor drains drain to the sanitary sewer and not to some grey water system? If the floor drain is connected to the sanitary sewer sysem, it may be possible to remove the floor drain and adapt to a shower. It will probably not be easy, however. If the floor drains do not connect to the sanitary sewer system, your only alternative is some kind of pump system.
