If you dig a pit then no need for the macerating toilet. You could dig the pit and put a basin in and that would house a sewage ejector pump. Then pipe the bath to the basin and you would be able to put regular toilets and fixtures in the bath.
Do you have a vent available to connect to? Are you going to install this yourself?
I haven't heard from you. Was the information I provided helpful?
Either one would need to be vented. The macerating toilet is the easiest and you could always vent it with a studor vent but if you put the basin in and a sewage ejector pump that will need to be vented. The macerating toilet is by far the easiest solution. No need to break up any of the floor for that. If you are adding a shower or tub then you would need to do the sewage ejector pump. The sewage ejector pump and basin is better but certainly the most expensive route and the most difficult. You would have to break up the floor and put all of the drain piping in the ground too. This is the best because you end up with a better pump and you can put regular fixtures in the bathroom.
