Best way to install kitchen and bathroom when not near usual sewage

Wanting to move kitchen to another room but it's away from sewage, also would like to have ensuite extension but also not need current sewage system?

Have seen on Internet reed bed drainage systems for grey waste and composting toilet but no info on Plumbers who install. Is this something for diy?

Probably the cheapest and easiest way would be to fit a macerator.

You will need a septic tank installing for the waste from toilets and the reed bed is fitted after that,very expensive and a very large hole would need to be dug out the back. You would still need to get the waste to it from ther kitchen and ensuite. These are designed for the country NOT inner cities as you need a lot of room, diggers etc etc etc Also planning permission.............its just gets expensive. An alternatve would be a saniflo for the ensuite which pumps the waste out via a 3/4" pipe to existing soil pipes and the same for the grey water for the kitchen.........

Have you considered using macerators to pump you waste there are types that just deal with water and these are very efficient if installed correctly.
