We moved in October to a home with a half finished basement.
Its a great place to have for my parents to stay with a bedroom, living space, kitchen area.. the only thing we were missing was a bathroom.
We have a septic system so adding another bathroom to the house isn’t a simple build so we researched for options that’d be DIY friendly and came across the Saniflo system, which allows for a bathroom to be built without major constructions or breaking concrete floors.
It’s a toilet that has a macerator (think of a garbage disposal) attached to it. So everything that’s flushed is immediately “grinded” and sucked into our existing pipes. You can tap it into any pipes you already have going to main drains.
Since this closet is directly underneath another bathroom we used those existing pipes and installed a bathroom for under $2000.
