    Hello Everyone,

    First just want to thank you for taking the time to read my post. I would like to relocate my sink and washer to the other side of the room in order to create easier access to the exit door. The laundry room is located in the garage which is on slab. I am trying to avoid tearing up my garage floor to put in a drain so i figured i use a basement toilet pump so I can reroute the drain to go 8 feet up across the ceiling and then down to the original drain. Has anyone done this before or is this bad Idea. I attached a model of the original layout and what i am looking to do. Hopefully the pictures help explain what i am trying to do.

    [​IMG]What you are showing for a pump is overkill for gray water only.

    I assumed that it was. I just used that as an example. So is doing something like that feasible or do you see any issues with the idea?

    No issues, it's done quite a bit by me. Lots of radiant heat and we dont cut concrete with heat lines in it.lol
