Wiring for new bathroom in basement

Hi,

I'm putting in a new bathroom into the basement and I have the following questions:

1. I don't have any space left in my electrical subpanel and it would be hard to wire all the way from the subpanel to the basement. Is it possible to take the existing GFI outlet in a different bathroom and have a wire extende from it to the basement GFI bathroom. Nothing else would be on this circuit. Would this be according to code?

2. For the ejector pump. Is it ok for it to share other items like a light? Does it have be a GFI? Should it be a GFI?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Sounds like a good time to add a sub panel in the basement.

Yes.

Probably not. How much power does it draw?

Recepeptacles in an unfinished basement require GFI protection.

If the circuit only serves bathroom receptacles it can serve multiple bathrooms.

What about the ejector pump, I can't find any code for that?

Yes for GFI, but you will need to check the instructions as far as a dedicated circuit. You could post the nameplate data also.
