    Default Is there a California building code stipulating minimum distance from tub to toilet?

    Is there a California building code stipulating minimum distance from tub to toilet? I would like to move to a wider tub and I want to make sure I'm not violating any codes.

    That's side-to-side. There's a code for room in front of the toilet as well (I think it's 24", but don't quote me!).
