Toto Aquia II Installation
HELP!! I purchased a TOTA Aquia II (CST 416) and can't figure out the installation instructions. The illustration on page 2 of the instructions show a spacing of 8 1/2" between the mounting blocks, while the template indicates that the holes should be drilled at a spacing of 7 7/8" apart. Did I receive the wrong template for this model toilet??
Thanks for your help,
Use the Template that came with the toilet
Just so you don't feel bad, I had the same question when I installed 2 of these a couple of months ago.
It seems TOTO was too lazy to print separate instructions for their radically different models and then did a poor job of writing them.
You should have a template to lay on the floor over the drain that has markouts for aligning the holes. The first picture on Page 2 of the instructions is for the Aquia I model... for the big ugly plastic trap.
Ignore this picture and use the Template.
One last suggestion, if you are drilling into ceramic or concrete be sure to get NEW masonry bits or you'll be drilling for quite a while. It's well worth the $4.
