    Thumbs down banjo counter top over toilet

    I have ordered a Toto Supreme round seat because it is a low profile. We are installing a granite banjo countertop that extends over the toilet tank.

    Because the toilet had to be ordered, the countertop will be installed before the toilet arrives.

    I can't seem to find out the dimensions of the Toto supreme tank. Mostly, I need to know how far the front edge of the tank will extend from the back wall behind the toilet. THen I can be sure how deep I want the banjo countertop to be.

    Also, how far up will the round seat extend when it is up?

    THanks,

    Default banjo

    the more important question will be whether you can get your hand into the tank to service the parts once the counter top is installed. In many cases the answer is NO and the tank has to be removed when it has to be repaired.

    It's pretty safe to have a 7" banjo top.

    The Toto Supreme has plenty of room for access with a banjo top.
    It's compact and removing the lid give you 2" more to work with.
