I want to replace an original 30 year old toilet with a new one. My original rough-in seems to be 14 inches. At least as measured from the bolt to the drywall. Most new ones seem to be 12 inches. I presume that is due to the smaller water tank.
Will it look odd with the two inch difference or should I special order one with the 14 inch clearance?
Am I measuring this correctly?
This is just a little out of what I am used to doing, plumbing-wise. No problem with taking one out to replace the wax ring, etc.
Thanks to all in advance.
The standard size for a toilet is 12". 10" and 14" are optional sizes. 14" is from the finished wall to the center of the closet flange / bolts.
A 2" gap would look terrible. I would replace your current one with a 14". The only other option would be to move the flange 2" closer to the wall, if you are doing a major remodel.
That's what I thought but thought I would get a "second opinion."
