    I have read numerous places to avoid going up as best as you can. I think a short run and metal duct would contribute much better to a clean line. Every home in my edition exits from the...
  2. Variation on This Theme

    Okay, so the image makes sense, but I have a variation.

    I have a 2x4 wall instead of 2x6. Also, my dryer vent needs to go down into the crawlspace (yes, then over and out). I want to avoid the...

    Toto Soiree Rough In

    These are comments for posterity:

    1. I had about an 11-3/4 rough-in, due to some negligent designing in my brand new bathroom. Nevertheless, I was able to install the Toto Soiree and actually...

    Jim,

    Thanks for the reply. It was after 9pm, and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to find a ring tonight. Lowes and HD were closed, but my local super grocery had a plain ring. The toilet is all...

    Wax Ring Height

    I am hoping to get my toilet installed tonight. I used a single wax ring, the brand in the photo. It is not only wax, but has the rubber gasket too. At finger tight, I get quite an unreasonable...

    Possible Switch to 10" Unifit

    In case I have to spring for the 10" unifit, is there any market for reselling or trading the 12"? It would be nice if Toto allowed you to choose when ordering the whole toilet. I'd hate to just...

    Caulking the Base

    I am scheduled to take delivery of my Toto Soiree today, and I'm excited. I wrung my hands a good deal between the 1.6 gal still available and the newer 1.28 gal. I got rid of the last toilet due...

    Terry,

    I saw that Unifit photo in between your and my posts, on a search. It did occur to me that perhaps I could drill alternate holes through it. If I can do that, man, that is the best...

    Toto Unifit Concerns

    I set my flange last week. It was about 1/8" tilted off the floor, but once I tightened the screws, it rested on the floor without problem. Now, I want a Toto Soiree. I just got off the phone with...
