    I recently bought an older home with a wall mount toilet, however my youngest broke it and I want to convert to a floor drain type. I have access to all the plumbing in the basement but the vent is in the wall. How do I vent the new system, I am not concerned with opening the wall for access.
    Thanks
    Brian

    You will need to redo the drain area in the floor and wall. The only way to do that is demo. If it is not your primary bath..ok. Otherwise..call the plumber.

    You will need to have some skill for this type of job. You need to set the flange for the toilet in the correct spot away from the wall and probably have to cut cast iron and attach a rubber boot to plastic fittings. AND have enough room to fit it all in.

    Take it slow..ask again or post more pictures and get ready for some gross stuff with bad smells.:D

    PS.. you usually don't need a vent for a toilet fixture, with a 3 inch line.Unless it is galvanized pipe...because they close up to 1/2 inch drain lines.
