    Ok, so it's just a style difference between those two? In other words, is the fit identical? Or is there a functional reason to prefer the SS114?

    soft close seat for Toto Pacifica

    I bought a Toto Pacifica from Terry about 8 years ago and put some sort of generic seat on it at the time (not sure what I was thinking -- trying to save a buck, I guess). Now I'd like to upgrade to...

    Thanks, BlueHouse. I did install the Porcher Lutezia (it's been about 2-3 years now), and am very pleased with it. No issues with performance, it looks beautiful (along with the matching pedestal...

    manufacturer for ABS drain?

    Ok, makes sense. Can you recommend a brand for good quality ABS drains? The plumber made it sound like we had two options -- the indestructible cast iron, or flimsy ABS. Unless I can compare some...

    Hydro Systems

    I have exactly what you are describing -- we're installing it this week. It's made by Hydro Systems (www.hydrosystem.com). They do a lot of whirlpool tubs, but you can order any model without this...

    This is all starting to sound very familiar... Yep - I recall having to redrill the holes, and no, I didn't have a diamond bit (*&%@#!).

    If drilling the holes is the only tricky part, I'll...

    I considered installing it ourselves (we installed the Pacifica, which required drilling into the concrete slab, and an unexpected and rather unattractive fix for the supply location), but frankly I...

    Thanks, Jim. I think we'll close the gap a bit when it comes time to finish the wall. Anything > 2" seems really excessive.

    Drilling through the tile would happen at the same time as final...
  11. Too much room for Aquia?

    I've got the opposite problem -- just had new rough-in for Aquia, plumber put it 14" O.C. from the stud. Will this put the tank far enough from the wall to cause any problem (or just look bad)? If...

    Ok, I just tried the "blind reach" method and came up with 48". Perhaps that feels natural because it's what I've come to expect from just about every shower I've used. Just another reason to stick...

    Thanks a million! Seems to all make sense now. The planks are definitely coming out, especially since we just ripped a few more out while the plumber was here taking a look-see :)

    By "extra" reinforcement, I meant in addition to 3/4 ply + backer ;-)
