It sounds like he's telling you flat out, and in no uncertain terms, that this is a temporary hack. He is telling you the floor under the toilet has some serious problems.

A lot depends upon whether you live where it can freeze. If you do then you want to bury the pipe from the house to the stock tank in the ground at a depth sufficient to prevent freezing. Then you want to use a frost-free farm or yard hydrant type valve to join with the buried water line and bring the water service up to the working level above the ground. ...
