    I bought two Totos from Terry and couldn't be happier. Installation of the Unifit adapter is a snap. I had another brand of LF toilets and they were a major pain. You do get what you pay for.

    I owned a couple of rental properties in my younger stupider days. From that experience I learned if there are kids around and you have a plumbing problem, they are the first suspect.

    Would it be possible to shorten a 10" Toto unifit adapter using a solvent weld slip coupler? That is a good one for Terry.

    Seems to me that a toto with a 14" unifit adapter might be a good choice because the same toilet will fit 10 12 or 14 in rough with the adapter dealing with the different rough in space. Might make...

    I think I would consider using a plywood subfloor to make up the height difference. If removing the tiles causes that big of a gap with the flange, there must also be a height difference where the...

    If by plastic trapway, you mean the "unifit" adapter, then you are in luck. Toto makes a 10", 12" and a 14", so I assume the 10" will work, though you will have a fairly large wall/tank gap. You...

    I'd put money that it will. I would sure test fit it before I cut the floor. Probably when you pull the old toilet, you will find that the R/I is closer to 12" than your rough measure shows. Also,...

    TOTO makes a number of models that use a "unifit" adapter that will accomodate 10, 12 or 14 inch RIs with the same toilet, but you do have to buy the 10 or 14 in adapter (about an extra $50, I...
