How far does a stool have to be from a wall to install it?

Stool from wall question


A standard stool has a 12" rough-in to the center of the waste pipe. I always go a bit more, 1/2" to 3/4". In my parents house had the tank basically resting "on the wall" and it was forever causing problems with mold on the drywall when the tank would sweat in the summer time....and I wanted there to be some space for ventilation behind the tank.
