Exclamation basement toilet

I want to install a toilet in my basement next to the exhisting waste stack. I have a 3" thick concrete slab floor that the stack pertrudes through. The stack is cast iron with a floor drain connecting to it. there is a coller pertruding just above the floor with a coupling on top of it with a clean out. Is this something I can do? I am pretty handy with plumbing. Also can anyone tell me aprox. how much it would cost to have a plumber rough in the waste line for toilet.

Thanks in advance,

This is something that you could do but it will require some work, jackhammer, cast iron pipe cutter or carbon saw blade, concrete and parts. Some precise measuring to meet code will have to be done.

Usually, I charge $500 per hole when it comes to rough-in and finish applications. You may want to have a plumber do this since they would have the tools, parts required to get it done without delay. You may end up going to the store more than you want.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Doug, you have been very helpfull. I think I'll take your advice and have a plumber rough-in for me. The aggravation factor alone seems worth the price.

Thanks again,
