Forum Title: New Toilet install, downpipe/vent/sump pump question
I am moving a toilet. The current configuration has a toilet with a downpipe that leads to a sump pump, which then evacuates to septic system. The existing toilet downpipe runs through the foundation. The vent, coming out of the sump pump chamber is, and is the same diameter as the toilet downpipe. My question is, can I run the new downpipe from the toilet into the vent, rather than run it into the existing downpipe in the foundation (concrete would need to be removed)? Is this code (Pennsylvania), and would it work? It is my understanding that the vent just leads to the chamber that the pump sits in, just like the downpipe. Am I right about this?

The issue isn't so much where I am moving the toilet. I want to tie in my new bathroom drain, and a washing machine into the sewage extractor, but I want to add an additional inlet in the cap rather than bust up the concrete to get at the existing inlet. This is what I am trying to do. If I can't do this, what is the reason?

you can ADD a new inlet.. the connection shall be air tight you can NOT tie into the vent to do so
