|In response to Re: Roughing in a basement bathroom|
Gary's advice is sound. The best option is to locate the plumbing below the slab (if the drains also run under the slab). Most Codes permit an 80" ceiling height in a basement bath.
Best to have a plumber inspect and advise you.
: Breaking or cutting the concrete is the way to go assuming the main drain is below the floor level. Raising the floor is not a good option, it would always look like a jackknifed job. You can probably live with the 81" ceiling height in a basement bathroom unless you have a family of basketball player. Your best bet is to have a plumber inspect the site and give you his advise based on personal inspection. If you do proceed, you could save some money by breaking out the concrete yourself with a small rotary hammer. Grizzly sells them for about $100 including drill bits and chisels. They work great on breaking out small areas and will drill holes in concrete like it was putty.
