    Hi,

    I am planning on converting a outhouse at the back of the garden into a gym.
    Would really like to install a shower room with toilet.

    Questions I have are:

    1) How deep underground do I need to lay the waterpipe from the house to the back ?
    2) What underground pipes are best to use?
    3) When I bring the waste back from the outhouse to the soil pipe what gradient do I need to use?
    4) Seeing as the distance from soil pipe to outhouse is approx 80ft would I need to use a macerator (like saniflo)?

    Has anyone tackled this project before? If so any general tips?

    Cheers

    ..another thing ...

    ... I am only planning to take cold water to the outhouse...
    I'm assuming I can use an electric shower to heat water...

    Get someone to draw up proper plans and submit them to building control.
