In response to Re: Remolding Basement
: 1. I would like to install and rear discharge toilet but, I am not sure what kind to get, I would like to get one that sits on the floor but if I can't a Wall mount would be OK.

: 2. I have heating pipes the hang low in the basement and I would like to replace them with copper pipe. The Pipes I think were over sized when they were installed (the house is 81 years old). The current pipes are 2" but the are being feed by a 1" pipe from the (hot water) boiler. I would like to change the 2" pipes to 1-1/2" copper pipe. The reason for this is to gain head room. I have a 7' ceiling and the pipes hang down about 1-1/2' giving me just over 5' of head room. Remolding basement

It all depends on how big your house is, the size of the rads, piping layout, etc.
2" piping is not oversized, if it were 2-1/2" or 3" or larger I would guess there may have been a gravity system originally installed. You're not going to gain that much more headroom anyway and you may disrupt your heating system.
