    Yes, I agree Terry - I think we're going to go with a floor mount rear-outlet such as this one from Signature Hardware. It would have been questionable to have a 2x6 wall and then attempt to exit...

    Yes, we would have to go through the wall and then angle across. Like I said, cannot drop vertically below the floor level until about 30" to the side of the toilet.

    Yeah, my sister in law recently did this in Toronto. Straight out, and up and around the eave.

    From the elbow joint, you mean? That's my problem as well - the elbow (and installation) shows it going straight down into the subfloor, between the carrier legs. I would have to go out for about 4...

    Also, Signature Hardware has a number of "European rear-outlet" toilets listed for sale - not sure of the quality, but it's tough to find a bunch of these in one spot.

    Well I've narrowed down to one wall-hung toilet, the Toto Aquia with in-wall carrier for 2x4 walls:

    And one rear-outlet, standing toilet,...

    Ahhh okay yes, I see what you mean. Sorry, in my own mind I've gone back to a tank toilet. The problem with the back of the wall is that although I'd be able to box out pipes along the floor, it is...

    What do you mean "if the tank protrudes likewise into that space"? Do you mean the toilet tank? Why would that have to protrude into the wall?


    Yeah, me too...which makes sense, it's hard to...

    Yep. It's back to a floor-standing, with-tank, rear-outlet toilet. Hopefully I can drain it the way I want.

    Thanks guys. I've spoken to Duravit and their cus. support tells me their wall-hung carriers are available for 2x4 or 2x6 framing, just like Toto.....but their in-wall tanks for the above...

    That's a great question - I hadn't considered whether the tile weight would be a problem. House is just over 25 feet wide and joists run from the outside wall to the centre load-bearing wall running...
  12. Haha - gotcha. I've asked Duravit about that...

    Haha - gotcha. I've asked Duravit about that toilet - they don't give much info on their page, so I'm trying to figure out it there's a flushometer system involved, or if the tank is merely in-wall...

    Joists currently have an original rough plank subfloor running diagonally across them. We'll likely add a plywood subfloor and tile over that.

    Yes I realized that later - like saying we won 2-5! :D

    The wall is not load bearing (currently it's one large room that we're dividing with this wall).

    Do you see any problems with the pipe...

    Yes, I've looked at the carrier. The bonus with the wall-hung models is that the wall is only studs and the carrier can easily be framed in, and the toilet itself saves a lot of space by not...

    No, the joists measure 2.5 inches wide by 7.75 inches "deep" (again, 100+ years old) - so I should not cut through them to run any sort of pipe. The joists are spaced 16 inches apart.

    Yes, the...
  17. Can I plumb a toilet like this? What toilet?

    First post, all. A great resource you have here.

    We're in the planning stages of converting a room in the top floor of a 100-year-old house to a bathroom. As seen in the attached picture, what...
