Washer Pump?
« on: December 10, 2008, 06:20:24 PM »

 OK, I am new to site. I have a question concerning my washer pump. I am putting in a toilet in our basement that has a tank with a macerator behind the wall out of site. The tank has 2 openings for sink,shower, etc to connect to the tank and it pumps water out and up into your standard sewer line and it does this via a one inch pipe. Here is the question. I have heard washer drain pumps are strong enough to pump water for quite a distance. Is there a way to connect the hose out of the back of my washer directly onto a pipe so it will push the water about 30 feet to the toilet tank? Not your everyday question but I need the advise. Thanks
