    Default Toilet needed that will clear hotwater baseboard heater

    The work is finally underway to remodel a bathroom. I just purchased a Kohler toilet for a twelve inch rough. To my surprise it would not fit, because the back of the toilet does not clear the baseboard heater behind the toilet. The distance is 9" from the front of the baseboard heater to the bolts.

    Does anyone make a highly rated ADA toilet where the base does not go as far as the back of the tank??

    There were similar postings from a few years ago, but I didn't see any resolutions.

    The Gerber 21-318 ADA Ultraflush will work.

    Thank you for your response. It looks like the Gerber Ultraflush is available only in white?

    To complicate things, I'm looking for biscuit color, elongated bowl, and comfort height.

    Toto looks like a great choice, but do they make anything that would work for me?

    Reminder, the distance from the baseboard heater to the bolt is 9", to the wall is approx 12".

    I don't like the idea of an electric heater under a toilet tank. If you could relocate the heater, then a 12" rough-in toilet would work.

    The baseboard heat is hot water not electric. I don't think that changing the baseboard heat from behind the toilet will be an option.

    Also, in my original request, I noted that an ADA toilet was needed. That may be a mistake. I don't even know what ADA stands for.

    Geber can be found in Biscuit.

    That, or you may need a 10" bowl.
    There are very few bowls that miss a heat register behind now a days.
