Looking for a compact toilet, 10'' rough-in

I am looking for a compact toilet with a 10'' rough-in. The situation is that the washroom is very small, and I need a toilet that is as short in length as possible. Any ideas on a toilet that would fit the situation? Also, do these smaller type toilets work okay?

    My current toilet is 11" from the wall in front of it. What is the most compact toilet to keep the knee space clear?

  • Anonymous May 14, 2009

    I have the same problem. I have an RV. I would like to put a regular toilet in it. The bathroom is very small - the toilet I purchased 10" rough-in; elongated, was much too large.

    I would like to know where to get a small 10" rough-in; round and small.

It's a year later... and you've probably already figured it out, but for those of you who may come upon this with a similar question: home improvement stores carry off-set flanges that you can install to give you a couple inches where your toilet (standard is 12" rough in these days) will fit in a smaller space. We needed a rough-in of 10 1/2" and the off-set flange did the trick!

The tiles behind my wall hung geberit tiles are cracking and the toilet seems to be moving a little. Ian afraid it is going to pull out of the wall. It has been there for 10 years but is a spare washroom...


Never herd of wall tiles cracking. If you have access to the underside of the bathroom (via basement ceiling), you may want to check of the wall(s) has proper support for load or a non-supported floor plywood joint may have been installed the wrong way/not supported properly. You should be able to see the nails coming through the floor plywood where the wall(s) is located above. You may have to add blocking and/or brace(s) with joist hangers for support as required. Interior wall studs may also been spaced at 24"c/c instead of 16"c/c if the wall tiles were not installed by the builder not accounting for heavier than normal load.

If by chance the washroom is in the basement::
  • Non-load bearing walls (interior non-loading will be supported by the slab.
  • Load bearing walls will be supported by footing foundations
As for your toilet moving: the wax gasket may need replacing if not seated properly (rocking). If it just seems a bit loose, try to just tighten the flange bolts on both sides of the bottom of the toilet after removing caps. If no spacers are present between the bolts and the ceramic, they need to be there to not crack the base or reduce the chance of over-tightening that would do the same. There may be water coming from a shower that's close by or from the sweating of the tank in the humid summer months.

If the ceiling are closed for access below, you have the choice of tackling the job from within the bathroom by removing the some of the plywood floor to inspect the problem OR by the ceiling below. I would should the ceiling below if it was me.

Good Luck!

You probably have excessive buildup on the pipe walls that have restricted the flow to the point of needing that second flush - or somebody flushed a plastic bag there and now it is acting like a flapper. This will also be evidenced by occasional flooding at that commode. There's only 2 solutions as I se4e it.; scrape the pipe walls ( rooter with a scraping head ) or replace the pipe for the build up, or rooter out the pipe to try to extract that blasted bag.
Good luck!!

Looking to buy/install Toto Aquia II in my circa 1964 co-op apt.


When you say 10.5 inches from wall, do you mean that from the center of the drain in the floor to the back wall is 10.5 inches? If so, you need a toilet for a "10 inch rough-in" dimension. The Aquia doesn't come in that dimension. Sorry!

Caroma Sydney Smart model 270 comes in a 10 inch rough-in and is a dual flush model. Note that all dual flush toilets are fairly expensive as compared to normal toilets. HOWEVER, genrally speaking, ALL 10 inch rough-in toilets are fairly expensive just because the low volume that are sold.

Toilet - 14 inch rough in


Hrm, I see what you mean and this may be a bit late.

The 14" rough in is not standard (as in 12") and the depth (from the back of the tank to the front edge of the bowl is your concern here?).

Kohler also has a Sterling brand with the Windham model. This will sit on the 14" rough and measure less than 30" from the back wall.

You could also go with a Toto ($$$ concerns) as they have a unifit system that allows for adjustment from your roughed in closet/toilet flange. It basically mounts to your flange and then sets back 2" or 4" depending on which model Toto toiler you are installing. The Soiree-?sp may be your best bet for depth concerns, but not so good for your wallet.

Howto install an auto detergent dispenser onto existing toilet ci


"Fluidmaster" makes a device that clips onto the tank and dispenses a solution into the bowl at each fill after a flush.
It goes inline with the tube runing from the fill valve, and dumps into the flush valve which goes into the bowl when filling.

Most LOWES carries them.
These are better than the ones that release the chemical into the tank because the chemical never has a chance of causing corrosion and failure of the tank to bowl seals.

What is the diference of 12'' rought or 10''on a installation


if you have a 10" rough in your house you can not install a 12" rough toilet. but if you have a 12" rough in your house you can install a 10" rough you would just have a 2 inch gap between the toilet and the wall.

the rough is measured by measuring the middle of the sewer hole. that your toilett sits on. to the back of the wall this is important because the tank sits behind the toilet. if the tank is too big then the toilet wont fit over the sewer hole.
your house shouldnt have a 10 inch rough unless its about 90 to 100 years old most home's now days go off a 12" to 14" rough.

if you do have an old home you can order any 10" rough toilet at a plumbing supply store. or lowes. they probably wont carry them in stock though because 100 year old houses aren't very common
