Can you install working plumbing BELOW the sewer line? I'm looking at my
basement and wondering if I can add plumbing or not. I'm strongly
suspecting no, as the septic tank line is on the celing of the basement, so
any waste-water would have to pumped UP - plus the unsanitary potential for
downstairs sinks to turn into sewage fountains.
But I figured there's nothing hurt by asking.
This actually happens rather frequently. A pit and an ejector pump
are what make it possible.
Devil's in the details though, but yes it's possible. Pit naturally
will be below the drains on that level.
my father in law has one built into the toilet, so the sink drains into
the toilet and everything gets ground up and ejected into the main
sewer by a small line. works fantastic. he is a retired sewer plant
