Client wants to add a bathroom in the basement. The main sewage line is above the basement floor, not buried in it. What is the better choice, an upflush power assisted unit or a wall mounted with the tank in the wall?
Sewer ejector. It will pump the toilet waste and the sink and any shower / tub.
You can easily tie into the existing waste line but will need to connect to a vent. Preferably up though the roof so you are not tying into a possible wet vent.
If it's a full bath then I would do a pit and pump. It's only runs me about a grand for the concrete work and extra plumbing. They'll save that the first few times someone flushes something they shouldn't through one of those little wall jobs.
