      I am wanting to put a bathroom in my basement. There is a stack from the kitchen in on corner that goes straight into the ground and then goes across the room underground diagonally. I know this by the location of the floor drain and the stack on the other side of the basement. My question is what size pipe is needed to add on a toilet? It apears to be a 3″ pipe before it goes underground. Would that be big enough for a toilet? Will the floor drain being after the toilet cause probs? Can i connect the pipes above floor level? Any help is appericiated!

      Your conection for the stack should be 5′ upsteam from floor drain. and the pipe should be 4″ in the ground.
