Is there a toilet that is over 16 1/2" tall? I'm looking for an elongated bowl for a 6' 2" male who is handicapped.
Thanks for the help,
Joyce

There are 17-1/4" toilets available, (from finished floor to top of bowl rim) but another option for the gentleman would be to have an elevated toilet seat installed. It will raise the height 3-1/2" to 4" higher than the bowl rim. A well stocked medical supply store will have it in stock. Good Luck.

I think those seat attachments are hard to keep clean.

Thanks for the information. Yes, the elevated seat attachments are hard to clean and they are not very stable.
