Bob Vila, installing a Toto with Unifit adapter
Bob Vila watches a plumber install a Toto Carolina toilet. This model uses a Unifit adapter so the rough-in can be changed if needed.
Most toilets like the Toto Ultramax use the standard 12" rough-in and don't need an adapter.
The Toto Utramax drops right in as an easy install, but it's fun to watch someone else and their thoughts on the Unifit equipped models.

Unifit - Measure and Adjust?
IN the Bob Vila video they don't show them measuring and then adjusting the Unifit adapter so that the distance from the back of the tank to the wall is correct. Isn't that something that should really be done? I have never installed one of these, so I am not sure, but it seems logical. Also, I can see where with one-piece toilets, having a small gap behind the tank is no big deal, as long as it is not too large so that it looks wrong. What about two-piece toilets? Is the object there to have a accurate fit so that the back of the tank just contacts the wall? That way the tank does not get moved when a user leans back against it, which could otherwise distrub the seal between the tank and the bowl. Am I on the right track with this? Thanks for any help and advice.
