    Toilet wall carrier compatibility

    I am wanting to use wall mounted toilets in my bathroom remodels but the cost for the wall mount toilet carriers is excessive. I like the Toto wall mount commercial toilets with a top bung and would like to use them with a high tank set up or with the tank mounted to the bowl. But when i...

    Used 3 feet Auger from Home Depot and Water + Poop is coming out of the Toilet

    Not sure if this is normal or not but it seems after every time I use the auger more poop and water keeps filling up the bowl of the toilet and I have to empty it so it doesn't overflow. Does this mean its working or is something else wrong?

    Toto Drake vs Ultramax 1.6 gpf - which one should I buy?

    Drake costs $429 at Home Depot, Ultramax is $606 Aside from the "harder to clean" reason to consider a one piece, is Ultramax the same as Drake in terms of quality / operability? In other words, if money wasn't an issue, does it make sense to buy Ultramax? I don't mind paying $180 more for a...

    24” metal toilet connector?

    I want to attach the Brondell CSL-40 hand-held bidet to the toilet. There is only about 4” of space with the bidet piece attached, so I need to replace the toilet’s 6” connector with a 24” all-metal flexible connector that loops.

    Shower and toilet on same vertical drain?

    Is it OK for the shower to be on the same vertical drain/vent line as the toilet? Seems risky, if toilet clogs. Could back up into shower. But I can't figure out any other way to vent the shower. The shower line is the 2" blue one. The toilet stack is 3". My apologies if this is a...

    Toilet/WC above Shower?

    I'm trying to get a wall hung toilet installed in my condo but my application got rejected because as I understand it, that the wet vented drain for the WC has to be at the same elevation or lower than other wet vented plumbing group fixtures such as the shower (I assume it is to prevent risk of...

    Moving toilet over one joist- question about elbows

    Looking to move a 3" waste drain over to the 21-22" mark shown in the first image so it's not so close to the wall. 2nd floor, no waste above this level. Plan to elbow through the 2x10, and then back up to the toilet. A street elbow and a two hub elbow puts the flange about where I'd want it...

    Toilet off level by more than an inch

    I have a toilet that needs to be replaced. The front of the toilet is over an inch lower than the back is, if I'd set it right on the floor. Too much to use shims. I saw someone using plaster of paris under it to level it out but I don't feel like plaster is strong enough. It's also not very...

    Had a toto washlet for years and loved it. Bought an apartment, moved into it a couple years ago, and couldn't bring the bidet with me. I finally got around to getting a new Toto C5 washlet and realized my tankless floating Duravit toilet seat holes are too far apart for the toto mounting...
