    I need to install a 1/2 bath in my basement and my sewage line is about 4 feet above the floor, so I need an upflush system. My dilemma is this, from floor to ceiling joists I have a total of only 86" to work with. Therefore, I really don't want to install a Quickjon system since this would eat up about 6" or more of height (I am 6'3" and this will be a finished bathroom, so head room is a must). I also do not want to break up my cement floor if it can be avoided.

    I saw a Sani-Pro upflush system. It looks like exactly what I want. However, I cannot seem to find any reviews on this product. Has ayone ever used this product? Are they reliable? Any known issues?

    Depending on who I ask around here (none of which are experts) I get mixed opinions.

    If you want to break some concrete and have the room for it outside of the bathroom, you can put in an ejection system in a well in the floor and then use any toilet you want. You'd have to account for a drain line and vent and run it to the well where you have installed the ejection system. Then, you don't lose any height in the bathroom and have a huge selection of toilets. If the ejection system were sized properly, you could then also put in a drain for a shower or tub.

    I really want to avoid breaking up the floor if I can avoid it. That's why the SaniPro upflush toilet looked like a good route to go. I just don't know anything about SaniPro toilets and I can't seem to find any feedback on the web about them. Are they any good?

    Thanks for the reply.
