Ready to Add a Basement Bath? Trust Our Licensed & Experienced Technicians

Are you looking to make your basement more guest-friendly by adding a basement bathroom? Or maybe you’ve recently renovated and think an extra bathroom is the best way to boost home value and enhance the space even more? Whatever your reasoning, one thing’s for certain – basement bathrooms should always be handled by a pro.

Why is this? Well, the main issue is that the bathroom will be built lower than your drainage system, which makes things a bit more complicated all around. Most plumbing systems use gravity to ensure they can drain efficiently and not clog up. But basement bathrooms don’t have gravity on their side. Because of this, even the most avid and experienced DIY-er can easily mess things up.

If you’re looking to add a basement bath, trust our experts to do it right, so you don’t run into problems down the line.

How Do Basement Bathrooms Drain?

So what can be done to combat this lack of natural forces? Well, there are several options, all of which we’re happy to help you explore. You might consider a pressure-assisted toilet, for instance, which uses air to push your waste through the pipes and into your septic tank. There are also upflushing toilets, sewage ejector pumps, and even composting toilets are an option for some. 

What Other Considerations Should I Keep in Mind?

We’ve talked a lot about the trouble with draining toilets in a basement bathroom, but the same issues arise for showers and tubs if you’re looking to install those, too.

In the end, the depth of your current plumbing will play a part in how we approach your basement bathroom needs, and we’ll need to consider the size of your pipes, too. Sometimes bigger pipes are required to ensure there’s enough space for the fluids to drain effectively.
