Question Installing basement toilet, shower and sink.

Iím installing a bathroom in the basement. I have a utility sink thatís been removed, but the pipe that goes to the sewer is still sticking out of the floor. I want to connect my drain for my toilet, shower and sink. The pipe is only 2Ē. I know it should be 3Ē for a toilet, but do you think that 2Ē will work?

Or, Iíll have to break the basement floor and connected to the main line. Which I would rather not cut in to the foundation.

Sorry, but that won't work or pass a building inspection.
If the pipe is 1.5" ID, it will be O.K. for a sink. A shower should have 2" ID and a toilet should have at least 3" ID drain pipe.
Check with your Building Inspection Department for local codes, permit and inspection information.
You might want to look into for an alternative solution.
Good Luck!
