    Default Neorest 500 and Rough-in Question

    My existing toilet has a rough-in of about 11 inches. Will a Neorest 500 install without altering the wall behind the 500 position? Alternatively, we're looking at a Vespin II (with 10 inch kit) and an S350 Washlet.

    Thanks.

    I've installed the Neorest 500 at 11.5" from the back wall.



    Are you measuring the wall? Or the floor mold?

    You can also fudge the adaper away from the wall some, depending on the size of your floor drain.
    On 3" you can pick up 3/8", and more on a 4" .

    11 inches from the floor baseboard and 11.5 inches from the wall.

    Just FYI, you can probably get away with the standard 12" Unifit on the Vespin II if you have 11.5 to the finished wall, even if you only have 11 to the baseboard, but check on here where Terry lays out what you need for that model. I know the 11.5 to the finished wall isn't a problem; I'm just questioning the 11 to the baseboard. You generally have 3/4" behind the tank at 12", and the base is out forward from the tank -- I'm almost certain the extra 1/4" won't be a problem, and you can always fudge the Unifit a bit.

    With 11.5" to the wall you're fine with either the 500 or the Vespin II with their standard 12" kits.
