14" Rough-In Toilet Choices
I have an older home that has a 14" rough-in toilet. My only choices seem to be: 1. Gerber DF-21-304 (Ultra Dual Flush/ Pressure Assist)
2. American Standard Cadet 3
3. Kohler Wellworth/ K-3433
4. Toto Guineviere/ Carrollton/ Vespin with the use of a Unift Adaptor.
Does anyone have experience with the Unifit Adaptor and how well it works? 14inch
Comparing a 14" Cadet 3 to a Toto 14"
On the left is a TOTO Soiree with a 14" Unifit adapter.
On the right is a 14" Cadet 3.
Notice how little room there is with the Cadet 3 in this small Seattle bathroom.
Now we compare the leg room.

The TOTO wins the Race for Space.
Just so you know, we took out the Cadet and replaced it with a Toto.
What are my choices with 13 3/4 rough in?
I am having someone install a new toilet and I have several limiting factors, I am wondering what the best toilet is for my old house. The outside water pressure is 56 psi, there is a 13 3/4 rough in and, there were two metal prongs sticking out of the wall 29 1/2" from the floor from the old toilet which I would like to cover. What are my choices? Do conversions affect flush performance? I prefer round as the room is small. Additionally, the old tile was very hard to remove and so the tile was installed over the old tile. Will this affect the wax seal on the drain and waste pipe because the toilet sets up higher? The house is colonial so a higher toilet would fit the style. OH YEAH, to make matters worse, the t-bolts were rusted away! What can be done to fix that?!
Most toilets have between 1/2" and 1" behind the tank.
You can install either a standard 12" or a 14"
Guinevere performance/will the wax seal be an issue due to tile on tile?
Thanks for your suggestions. What is the Guinevere like for performance? Best to just come out and ask...Will it handle tampons, and not leave smudge marks? How does the toilet get attached if the bolts are rusted and partially snapped? Any ideas on what to do with the rusty bolts on the right hand wall in the picture. The Guenevere doesn't come up high enough to cover them. Will the wax still seal on the waste pipe if the tile is laid on top of the old tile (toilet will be max. 1/2" higher than it was from waste pipe)?
14-inch rough in for small space?
We have an 82-year-old house with an old (but probably not original) toilet in the powder room.
Its parts are shot, so we need to replace it. Unfortunately, the room is tiny.
We need a round-bowl toilet with a 14-inch rough-in. But all we see are elongated bowls or ultra-modern styles. Or they cost $1,100.
Got any suggestions?
A 14" Unifit will pull the bowl back 2" closer to the wall.
