    Default Wall Mounted Toilet Selection - Help!

    My wife says she just has to have a wall mounted toilet in the master bath, mainly for ease of cleaning, etc. Meanwhile, I'm 6'4" and 235lbs. so I wanna make sure I get a wall-mounted toilet that'll support my weight. I also want an elongated bowl with an automatic flushing sensor and a model with the super-flushing capability since I'm less worried about water conservation. Does anyone have a recommendation as to the best make/model toilet for this scenario, where cost is not really a factor?

    Toto has theAquia Dual Flush Wall mount toilet just introduced. Toto is still developing the in wall tank and carrier for it. From what I am told, it wil have a 600 pound weight limit and will cost less than the Geberit equivalent. If you cannot wait, it is compatible with the Geberit carrier. The Wall Hung Aquia is only available in Cotton. (white)

    If you want the old style, there's the American Standard Glenwall.
    It has a tank with Flushmate and used the standard four bolt pattern.

    Or you can use the inwall tanks, Duravit, Caroma, Toto

    Long ago when I called Chicago Faucets (Geberit) technical service they told me of all the Euro style bowls that fit.

    Any wall mount bowl that you will find by searching "Wall hung" or "Wall mount" will be a Geberit style hung. It's a "standard" in practice. Caroma is the one company I know of that has its own carrier.

    It's fear and overkill and lack of confidence if you say "make sure I get a wall-mounted toilet that'll support my weight." That's OK for someone who is looking into it for the first time ever. Now, drop it and get over it. They all do a great job of supporting weight. Open the Geberit PDF's, see where the bolt holes are and do the math yourself to see if the distance is enough for weight X.

    This is an ADA bowl when mounted on a standard 4-1/4" rough.
