Thread: basic question

  1. #1

    Default basic question

    I never thought this could be so complicated. My requirements for a replacement toilet are ADA and a 14" rough in. What are my options??
    Thanks

    Are you asking what model toilet will work for you? I would expect that any ADA compliant toilet should fit in a 14" rough in. There are many ADA compliant toilets to choose from.

    I believe if you were to change the flange to an adjustable one, you could "lose" 2" and use a regular ADA toilet such as the Toto Drake. Often these flanges are offered as a way to gain 2" from a 10" rough-in to a 12", so I think they should work the other way. If this is not correct, I'm sure I will be corrected.

    The Drake ADA doesn't adjust, it's a standard 12" rough toilet.

    Most 14" toilet combinations are really 12" bowls with thicker tanks.
    As long as there is room, using a standard 12" would be fine.

    If you want to pull the bowl back toward the wall, then there are models that use a Unifit, some are for the 14" rough.

    Toto Llyod has a 16.125" bowl height and the 14" unifit can be ordered for it.


    Toto Nexus is 16.125" bowl and will work with a unifit.

    Thanks for setting me straight. As you could probably tell from my post, I wasn't absolutely sure. It appears that there are easier ways that changing the flange to get around the problem anyway.

    Default toilet

    Unless the extra space behind the toilet is a problem using a 12" toilet on a 14" rough should not be a problem.

    We've made some compromises and settled on either the Toto Plymouth or the Dartmouth. Any comments on either??

    I like them both.

    Both have good performance and they look really nice.
    I put them in a lot of older Seattle homes, though the new traditional style home would work well with them too.
