Adding a bathroom to basement

sdemjsully5September 27, 2012

We have an unfinished basement, and are looking to add a bathroom as a first toward finishing. We do not have a rough-in for plumbing in the basement.

Any ideas on what to expect in terms of cost, to have a plumber rough-in plumbing in the basement?

We live in S-east PA.

Considering using the Sani-flow macerating system instead of a rough-in, but not sure of the pros/cons between the two approaches.

The cost will depend upon how far your run is, if you already have an ejector pit with a 2" ejector pump plus whether you want a 2-piece or 3-piece install. Can you do any of the work yourself? I haven't installed the bathroom in our basement yet but when I do, I will break out the floor and supply the PVC. Plumber said $800 to install including patching the floor. Ours will be about a 15 foot run.
