Can I Move Toilet Drain Into Wall?

Hmm come to think of it, that really would be a throne wouldn't it?

Plus with all those turns, it would tend to clog. And, if takes you more than about 5 feet, you'd have to open the floor any way to remove the existing trap and move it to the new location because you can't have 2 traps on a fixture.
lol yea it would but i will be buying a new toilet that has a rear end drain like this (though not that expensive/high-tech)



I never thought of the clogging, it'll have 3 turns. and yea itll move about 3-5ft

also this is a gut job, a lot of walls are already down cause of mould

Not to mention reframing the wall to build it out far enough to run the correct diameter of pipe in the wall which includes being able to make a turn from the
wall to come out to the toilet while the whole time maintaining a slope. There's a reason licensed plumbers the world over install toilets in much the same way ... and in Canada sh#t still flows downhill (and not great round a loop of 90 degree turns)
