Help please! We are enclosing our garage (split level home) and would like to put a full bath w/whirlpool tub in. The wall on which the tub &/or toilet will be against is concrete to 18 1/2 in. high. Ceiling 8 ft.
Trying to avoid the labor of going through the wall. The sewage line is apx. 1 1/2 foot on other side of wall in a very spacious crawl space. It runs close to parellel with top of this partial concrete wall.
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated (except the suggestion to forget about it - I already tried this on my wife and it didn't work!) Been in the Marine Corps 8 yrs. and still haven't found anyone to outrank her!!!! Help me keep the peace! Thanks! Bill

I'm no expert, but one thing seems logical. The devices that use water need to be higher than the sewage line. Have you considered a raised platform for the bathtub and commode?
