Cost to plumb a basement bathroom

What's the approximate cost to plumb a basement bathroom? There's currently no rough plumbing, so someone would have to come in and break up the pad first.

That will vary from place to place. Get 3 estimates & take it from there.

Many factors..... Open ended question... Tile, fixtures....etc....

A regular bath costs 4k to 10 K in NJ for reno.....Thats with walls and plumbing there...

Add 5k plus or minus 2 K plus for slab work IMO.....

Depending on area....

Sorry... should have been a little more specific. I'm really just looking to have someone do the rough ins for a toilet and sink. From the ground up I can do the rest.

I guess I also have no problem sawing up the floor and getting down to the main line. I just want a pro to make sure the slope of the line going into the main is correct.

Depends how deep the main line is will dictate where you cant put the toilet...

You need to get a vent up through the roof or in the to tie into another vent... Are you able to do this?

I can see the existing vent, but getting to it is a different story. What about using and automatic air vent? My brother has a newer home and they put one of those in his basement... having said that, it is a track home in the city and the majority of the work they did on the house is not great.

As long as you're doing the cutting and digging, the actual hook up should be pretty easy. A few hours from a plumber should be able to get everything hooked up for you. Or at that point, you might be able to do the rest of it yourself.

Many locales don't allow AAVs, especially for toilets. You'd have to ask your local inspector whether it would be acceptable. You'd probably be better off installing a vent to the roof.

Thought something like that might be too good to be true. I'm not super crazy about the idea of adding another vent. I guess I need to just find a way to tie into the vent that's already there.
