Toto Option for Very Small Bathroom?
In our upper bathroom, I installed a Toto Drake a few years ago, and love the G-Max flushing system. Our very small lower bathroom has a pre-1975 Eljer 5gpf toilet that has caused endless problems, with not even addressing the water consumption. The bathroom's small size and 14 inch rough makes a purchase a tough one in today's market. The Eljer has a depth of 27 inches. Due to the very small size of the bathroom, and limited access space to the shower entrance (directly across from the bowl), we need to keep the toilet's maximum depth at 28 inches or less, preferably less. Although I know the Toto elongated bowls are shorter than normal, perhaps its best to stick with a round bowl if possible. The depth limitation and the 14 inch rough in are the problems.
I noted on Toto's website the Drake II round bowl depth is 26 3/8" which would be perfect, but it appears it's only available in the standard 12 inch rough in. Is the Drake II available as special order for a 14 inch rough in? If not, does anyone have any suggestions on other Toto models which make work in this situation? From memory, I know that Toto used to offer the UniFit Rough In Adapter, but I don't know if any of the current Toto models use the UniFit system. I believe these were typically one piece toilets.
I've been fighting this problem for at least 10 years, and keeping the slow-fllushing and easily-clogged Eljer working as best as can be expected for a nearly 40 year old toilet. And, to try to come up with a viable replacement solution...?? I'd love to stay with Toto, but if any of you much more experienced folks than me have another manufacturer suggestion given the design restrictions for a 1.6gpf toilet (that actually works!), I would sincerely appreciate your advice.
14" rough in (door opening starts at 30.5")
I'm looking for a TOTO toilet to replace in my master bathroom which has a 14" rough in. The door starts at 30 1/2" The space between the edge of the current bowl and the wall is 8"
The 3 that are in consideration are the Drake elongated CST744E, Vespin II CST474CEFG with 14" unifit adapter, and Drake round CST743E (if I must...).
Here are the problems with each:
EcoDrake CST744E - according to specs the toilet is 28" and sits 1 1/8" off the wall. In total that would be 29 1/8" but since this is for a 12" rough in I would have to add another 2" making it a total of 31 1/8". I'm worried that the door will hit the edge of the bowl. Is it possible to "skootch" the toilet an inch back?
Vespin II CST474CEFG w/ 14" unifit adapter - The water shutoff is 6" left of the center and 4 1/2" off the ground. I've seen that Terry has installed these with 5 1/2" clearance. With the valve knob, my clearance drops to around 5 1/2". I'm wondering if Terry's measurement of 5 1/2" includes the knob or is just from the center of the pipe.
EcoDrake Round CST743E - I'm a guy and prefer to install an Elongated toilet.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
