How to tie 3/4" pvc into 3" abs

I just purchased a upflow toilet for our basement and I was just wondering how to tie the 3/4" pvc from the upflow to the 3" abs sewage stack?

It's a saniflow sanibest. It pretty much chops everything up into mush and then pumps it up the 3/4"

A 3/4 line does seem awfully small for this application. But if that's what the instructions say to use, it must be OK. Joining dissimilar plastic pipes is iffy since they all use different kinds of cement. You could try a saddle tee if you can find a 3 x 3 x 3/4. Oatey makes the tees, and probably others as well.

Yeah I thought 3/4 was small too, but I guess it chops everything up into such fine pieces and then pumps it though the pipe. I would upsize it to 1" but they call for 3/4" so 1" might drop the pressure too low to pump everything up. I will look into the saddle tee. Thanks

Tie in with a wye on a vertical stack.

15 ft vetical max before running horizontal.

No AAV ( air vents allowed) Must vent properly.

That unit will be more trouble then good IMO. Hope it works out for you.
