    Exclamation toilet height

    can you tell me what the height including seat that a toilet should be and also wash basin height. these are commercial fixtures in florida. Seems what i am being told about plumbing codes and ADA requirements are different. Can you help.

    Is this for a wall-hung toilet or a floor mounted one? Wheelchair accessable?

    "normal" toilets are bowl height typically 14" to 14". ADA bowls are usually 16" to 17" . Add roughly 1" to all of these for seat height.

    There is no code I know of for "regular" bowls. A facility, like child care, may be required to have some childrens' 10" high, like the A/S Baby Devoro. Pubic facilities usually need to have "accessible" restrooms, meaning an ADA stall.
