Bathroom In Basement

Hello and thanks for adding me.

I'm want to put a bathroom in the basement. The sewer line is about 7' above the basement floor. I purchased the Star Upflow System for the commode. I would like to know your feelings about these types of pumpups. My concern is the shower. How much room do I need under the shower base to run the pipe, and how can I divert the pvc to a lower level and into the pumpup system? Will I need a raised showing base? Thanks again.

I have never installed one of those...all I can say is the discharge line should be tied into the sewer line at the nearest point. Up in the ceiling , same as an ejector pump would be tied in. This link has a schematic. Substitute the ejector waste line for your specific thingamajigger. Good luck!

Well, I didn't want the mess of breaking up the basement floor. This should handle the sink, commode and shower if I can figure out how to run the shower drain pipe. Thanks
