    They make toilets that sit on a tank that contains a pump that grinds and pumps the waste up and to a waste pipe connection. The sink, bath and or shower connects to the tank to make use of the pump.

    look into adding a sewage ejection pump.....it can handle all your plumbing need in a basement. You must place the basin(usually 30 gallons in size) into the ground, breaking the concrete to dig the hole. It connects to the sewage lines with pvc pipe with a check valve to prevent back-flow. Up-flush toilets are OK, but cannot match the efficiency of a sewage pump.

    We tried it a few years ago. I STRONGLY recommend NOT doing this! Ended up taking it out about a year after it was installed. After a very gross clean up job, that is.

    Check out the "Bathroom Anywhere"..... I'm going to install this in my basement. I've read good reports about it, and in addition to the toilet, you can hook up a shower and sink easily, too. It's about $900 for the complete toilet and macerator. However, the shower and vanity will be in addition to that. It's still very reasonable, tho'.... and easy to do. There are video's showing how easy it is, on Youtube.com

    Sewage ejector station, correctly installed. Can't verify the quality of the mfg. but this is essentially what you need. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Flotec-11-32-HP-Sewage-Ejector-System-FP400C/100121160#.UkYNw8aPR8E

    Have a question about the sewage pump mentioned..... When you say it has to go into the concrete, how does that save from just going into the concrete and hooking into the present sewage line? What makes it better? Also, what is the cost?

    we put a bathroom in the basement in one of our income homes. It is a special toilet that flushed up, with the help of a sewage pump.
