Can I Install a Toilet where there is No Drain?

I’d like to install a new bathroom in my basement, but there are no existing drain lines in the foundation slab. Are there any other options aside from tearing up the slab?

 

Yes, you can install a macerating toilet. These toilets use a macerating blade to chop up solid waste, and have a pump that forces the waste through the plumbing against the force of gravity. In other words, these toilets basically flush upward, so you can install them on a slab and run drain lines from the pump to the existing main drain of your home. For more information, just type “macerating toilet” into a Google search.
