    Default one Piece toilet doesnt match holes

    hello everyone, I happened to find a good deal on craiglist for a one piece toilet. When i was ready to isntall it , i was not able to put the toilet flush on the flange after lining up my screws. I look at the bottom of the toilet bowl and found out that the holes are not at 9 and 3 o'clock of the exit pipe. They are more like 5 and 7 o'clock.

    Im going crazy trying to figure out whats going on, I looked everywhere and cant find any information. I dont see a brand name on the toilet either....I hope someone can she some light into my problem.

    Thanks.

    That's a new one . I see no way to set that on a flange using closet bolts.

    I guess Im stuck with this one. I think I will put some anchors on the ground and attach it that way. Does anyone see a major problem with that. I know is not the approved way to do it, but I guess I have no choise. Its probably a non us made like you said. I'm surprise they would have that here.

    But now it makes sense because the regualr 7/8 3/8 hose that connects the toilet for the water doesnt fit. its a little to big.

    Never thought that could happen, why would anyone bring a non us toilet to the us? oh well you live you learn.

    Looks to me like a Sioux Chief raise-a-ring has a pattern that might work with that. Might lift the flange too high for you though.

    You can try a set of these, position them so they line up with the bolt holes on the toilet with the horn of the toilet in the existing flange. They must be securely fastened to the floor.

    The Asian toilets I used were squat style...no sitting. Made me appreciate the presence of water to cover the smell. Malaysian curry/hot pepper heavy diets and squat toilets make for incredibly pungent restrooms.

    The public toilets that used western style commodes had signs illustrating not to stand/squat on top of the toilet.
