    Unhappy Toto Carlyle installation quandary...water line comes from floor, not the wall.

    Hi,

    I've got myself in a bind installing a Carlyle and thought I'd solicit everyone's advice.

    I missed the water supply line restriction of the Carlyle and am half way thru an install (we've fitted the UniFit adapter to the floor). The supply line is coming from the (tile) floor.

    Basically, the toilet can't be installed because the supply line is where the back extension of the toilet is.

    It looks to me I have two choices:

    1. Move the water supply line.
    2. Cut the toilet

    Cutting the toilet *seems* the easier option but I'm unsure about the risks. Assuming that we use a diamond bit, it looks straight-forward enough. Someone did point out that the cut edges may be extremely sharp. What other caveat are there?

    Moving the water supply line is the more labour-intensive option. (We'd need to take the baseboard off, remove the tile, cut the subfloor, shift the line and restore.)

    What are people's experience with either? Thanks.

    George
