Up-Flush Toilet - Basement w/Septic System

I'm planning on installing a toilet & shower stall in my basement. We have a septic system, so I would need to purchase a system that pumps the effluent "up" to the septic drain. Approx 6 ft lift required.

I've seen Zoeller makes 2 different systems. Once uses a proprietary toilet that forces effluent directly into a tank/pump assembly. The toilet can sit directly on the exisitng floor.

The other system uses a platform where a std issue toilet may sit on top, and the effluent drains into the tank/pump.

Has anyone used either type? Which is better? Any other brands out there I should consider? Pitfalls?

Thanks in advance.

I would consider installing a ejector pit in the floor, run fittings and go from there. Good Luck!
