Question Installing Bathroom in Basement


I am new to this forum so I thank you in advance for any help I recieve.

I am planning on putting a bathroom in my basement. Right now the plumbing is all readily accessible--as it is below the upstairs floor joists.

I know that I will need a submersible pump, but I think I am looking at two options.

1. To build a subflooring and run the bathroom plumbing in this.

2. Or to cut the concrete and put the plumbing into this.

I was wondering If anyone could give me advice on this subject. I think that the second option is more professional, but I dread jackhammering the concrete to run plumbing and create a hole for a submersible pump.

Check with your Building Inspection Department for local code, permit and inspection requirements first.
Your first option is usually easier, faster and less expensive, of course. Just make sure that you have that 1/4" slope per linear foot of drain pipe.
Good Luck!
