    Just keep in mind a couple of things. Your contractor likely has a sweet deal from his supplier based on volume sales. Then, guess what the sales person is selling? In mean if you go to the Ford...

    No way to prove anything, but I would suspect that something got into the toilet that lodged in the trap way. Even a huge amount of TP isn't going to clog a Toto. Glad the problem was quickly and...

    I'm pretty sure all ADA toilets are all elongated. In addition to ADA height, there are also "comfort height" and "Universal height" These may be close to ADA height but not quite meet all ADA...

    This will work, but you likely will want to use a thick wax ring. Flanges are really supposed to rest on top of the finished floor, tile in your case, but the thicker ring should insure a good seal.

    Maybe you should have made it clear that you wanted cheap. There are lots of builder grade toilets for around $100 in discount houses.

    I don't have the info on the footprint, but I will make a couple of other comments. First, you may be able to get a local plumbing shop to order the Toto for you. Online can save some $$, but they...

    I don't have much recent experience with septic tanks, but in the olden days water ran downhill. Now, I know times have changed, but I really think that still hold true. That should give you some...

    Not to start a war on this, and I certainly yield to HJ's experience and expertise, but I use the threaded adapters into valve bodies to avoid possible damage to the valve. Now, I'm a DIY and while...

    I realize you had those ells on hand, so good idea to use them. Most of us just use short nipples, threaded adapter, and regular elbows. They aren't pretty, but hidden behind walls so pretty really...

    Hell yeah, there ain't nothing to plumbing. I mean alls you have to is run pipes and glue 'em together. Any dumb ass can do that. NOT

    As Jim just pointed out, the options for a Toto with the UniFit adapter would work very well for you. However, they do cost more than your budget. What is really compounding your problem is the 14"...

    If the trap is dry, it would indicate there is no vent and the trap is siphoning dry.

    I have a Delta 1700 and while it is quite similar, I do not think it is a 1700. Since you have everything exposed, you might want to consider a new unit. Not at all sure of how much more it would...

    You get more flow from large pipe. If you are so concerned about the Schedule 20 PVC, it's only 40 feet, dig a new trench and put in 1" copper. Yeah, it's more expensive than PVC, but it will darn...

    PVC and CPVC do not mate. CPVC is only used on the interior of a house, and the inside diameter is about 1 size less than PVC. You stated in you original question you were concerned about flow. ...

    Sanigloss is great, but it isn't a magic bullet. You should first look into treating your water to minimize the problem. Once that is accomplished, then a Sanagloss would be a good choice.

    I am not familiar with that type of fitting either, but it looks to me like the real problem you have will be attaching a new pipe. Cast iron is not DIY friendly. There are rubber adapters that can...

    I would suggest you look at the skirted Toto toilets. These are the ones that use the Unifit adapter. Now, the adapter doesn't improve the flush or bowl cleaning, but these toilets do preform well....

    Keep in mind, a toilet is an appliance that should last for years. Buy a cheap unknown brand, and you are in a crap shoot. Maybe you'd end up being the smartest guy in BC, but if not, what then? ...

    Never heard of this brand, but it's Chinese, so I wouldn't bet on it. There are dozens of low-flow toilets on the market. Some are junk, some are so-so, and a few are pretty good. There is no...

    The Legato uses the Unifit Adapter and the ports you describe are to give access to the nuts holding the adapter to the flange and toilet. All Toto toilets using the Unifit are skirted to cover the...

    I won't fault DonL's advice, but see my answer to your question in first post. Electrical tape will not waterproof the connection.
