A toilet that doesn't clog.


I have a 4" drain pipe coming from my bathroom. For some reason, my toilet doesn't use 4", it uses like 2, so it's always clogged.

Do they make a toilet with a larger exit hole?

Not even a camping trailer would have a 2" hole, somethings very wrong.
Any standard toilet is 4".
Is it the toilets hole that's 2" or the flange?

I think the OP may be looking at the bathrooms sink drain dropping down in to the 4 inch main. Minimum drain pipe size for a water closet is 3 inch drain. The home must have been built by a Exlax salesman.

I think he's talking abou the trapway in the toilet.



Most toilets are 2"

Some are 2-1/8"

If you buy a "Caroma" toilet, they are a washdown toilet and use a 4" "trapway"

Yeah, it's retarded, you use this huge drain pipe, then add this real narrow area for it to get clogged. If it wasn't for all these bull**** "water saving" regulations, I bet they could get a toilet that would flush. "Water-saving", biggest bull**** term they ever got idiots to believe in. Lets 'save' something that can't be destroyed, covers 2/3rd of the ****ing plant, and literally fall from the god-damn sky.
