Wonder if you guys can help.
I am getting a new bathroom refitted but I want to relocate the existing toilet to the other side of the room and was told I need a 4inch soil pipe to go across and out the wall but I don't want this option as it will reduce floor space quite a bit onsidering my bathroom is small. What are the other options and how are they done?
If a pipe can go through the floor then is there a chance that if there is problems you have to take the tiles out?

It depends on your layout really - maybe its possible to go straight out of the wall and connect to your SVP or it could go straight downwards, into the ceiling void below. You could also use a Saniflow system, which deals with small bore pipe.

As Burnerman wrote above - you need to find out the direction of the floor joists. If they head towards the outside wall you might be able to run the soil pipe straight across under the floor. If installed properly this shouldn't give any problems.
