15 inch space allowance for toilet


Ok here's the deal. I know that there is code that dictates a minimum of 15" clearance between center of toilet and vanity/tub Etc... I want to put a new 30" vanity in, but that leaves me only 14 1/2".... Should I get something smaller to comply? If I go with the 30" vanity is an inspector going to make me change it when I sell my house?

Another quick one.. Do they make mold resistant and water resistant 1/4" green board? I've only been able to find it in 1/2....

I think you have it wrong. 2006 International Plumbing Code - the clearances on both sides is 18" from the center of the bowl. The 2003 UPC mandates 24 inches clearance from the front lip of the bowl to any obstruction. The 2003 IPC (International Plumbing Code) mandates 21" minimum from the front of the bowl to any obstruction.

Of course, I could be wrong too.

Is this your home? New construction? Permits pulled? If not new, and it was already that close, I wouldn't be too concerned as it can be "Grandfathered" in. If new, it should have been thought out a bit better....

It's my place, small bath renno, no permits.... I'll get a vanity that will give me the clearance. Probably the best idea.
