    Hi folks,
    I'm new here and stumbled on what seems to be the best place for toilet advice..
    anyway here is the situation...

    I currently have a very old 1920"s toilet with an updated floshometer. This is in a NYC apt..
    I would love to update it with a tank toilet...
    This toilet has a 10" roughin..
    can this be done..
    Would love to get a elogated, high say 15 or 16" height toilet...

    any advice is appreciated..
    and what brand of toilet ?

    aNY 10" tank type toilet will work, although you may not find a handicap height 17" one. Your problem will be to reduce the 1" water line to 1/2" and then get it to the bottom of the tank and make it look good. Why not a 17" high flush valve type toilet?

    I know I'm too fussy

    But I just hate the look of the flushometer type toilets.. I'll take a look at the toilet you recommend if you have a suggestion.. (link)?
    But I still am leaning towards converting to a tank type.. and as I can see from this forum.. toto is the way to go..
