9" rough-in toilet?


Does anyone know of a company that manufactures a 9" rough-in toilet? I have done some research and found that American Standard is a possiblility. I can't call them until Monday...any ideas? Thanks.

Thanks for your help...I had one lead that said American Standard makes one but you have to sign a waiver because it is against code...I was also told that they make a stainless steel version that is put in tight spaces - prisons and jails. I guess they are very expensive and are nearly indestructable.

The search continues, however, it looks like the wall behind the toilet is going to be inset. Doesn't everyone love fixing other people's mistakes? Thanks again.

Is their any way you can squeeze another inch out of the flange? What kind of pipe is it and can you get access underneath by cutting out the sheetrock?

You may want to look into an offset flange if you are not on a concrete floor. The only thing I do not like about them is they seem to decrease the outlet size. Just another thought. Good luck.

I purchased an American Standard Cadet 3 with a 10" rough in... i am about at 9 1/4 with the tank up against the back of the wall. I really thought i was going to have to adjust the sheetrock for a bit....

i did not want to do an offset flange and could not do a 14 inch. I basically did not want to cut and box a floor joist. I think I got a bit lucky. I moved the toilet to this location from one across the bathroom

I like the AS Cadet. For an inexpensive toilet, it has a large discharge hole and comes with a Fluidmaster 400A fill-valve.

I also just put an AS Cadet (12") in my new addition..... works great. It acts different than a normal toilet as the water level in the bowl does not go up before it flushes... it just empties. Is that normal for these toilets?

Yes. I get worried when the water rises in the bowl when flushed. The water coming from the tank should swirl when leaving the rim and push the water and waste out the outlet. This could be because of the 2-3/8" outlet in the AS Cadet. I have seen toilets on display that only have 1-1/2" outlets. I think they would clog easier.

9" rough-in toilet?


I am putting a bathroom in my basement, and about to install the flange. From reading posts here, I saw 10, 12, or 14 inch rough ins. What is the most used distance, and then, is it measured from the finished wall or the finished studs? Also, since I will be putting tile down, should I install the flange on top of the backer board?

Thanks in advance

Sorry, I meant to post a new thread

12" is the most common rough-in toilet you will find. The others are mostly special order. The measurement is from the finished wall to the center of the flange. The flange should be level with (top of it) or sitting on the finished floor.

I'm wondering if you can mount the toilet tank higher up on the wall, and have a pipe connecting it to the bowl on the floor. They had these systems back in the 1940's, but they've largely disappeared now. Unfortunately, that would also require that you connect the water supply near the floor to the tank higher up on the wall, and that might look like he11.

An offset floor flange would give you at least another inch, but the problem is that you'd have to enlarge the hole in your underlayment and subfloor. They do make closet support kits to support the toilet if the hole for the toilet drain pipe is cut so large that the flange screws don't even grab wood, tho. You can buy them at any of the plumbing wholesalers in your area. I kinda doubt the home centers would carry them. I expect every plumbing wholesaler in your area would sell you a closet support kit if you paid cash cuz they know you probably can't get them in the home centers.

SR996 -- your install, is it on an interior or exterior wall?
