I'm not a plumber, but yes you can.
There are sewer pumps made for the purpose, but this type of installation is best left to an experienced pro.
Just get three bids from different plumbing companies for the same work.
Good Luck!

Thumbs up bathroom install

Hi,yes it can be done .Dont know what you call them in the states but over here you can buy a gizmo called a macerator which grinds up the waste and can pump it to about 8 foot high and 30 foot horizontaly .It fits directly onto the back of the lavatory pan outlet and you can run your waste from the bath ,basin and or shower into it to.
