    Just bought a house with a 2 bolt wall mount Case 3000 (black). There is a leak and I believe I can find the parts to fix it. Should I just get it fixed or should I just replace it with the Standard American Wall Mount toilet (4 bolt)? Insurance is going to replace it so I am wondering if it is worth to just replace the whole toilet. I know the Case 3000 is a pretty solid toilet though. Also will it be hard to put in a 4 bolt toilet? The one we have now is 2 bolt. Also anyone know of any other brands besides American Standard that makes wall mounted toilets in black? Thanks for all your advice.

    If insurance is indeed going to pay it might be time...
    Its sure not going to be cheap!

    Thanks for your advice. How difficult to change from a two bolt wall mount to four bolt?

    It's not real.
    You can buy the four bolt bracket the same place you get the toilet.
    It's just open up the wall, bolt that thing on, and have the drywall patched.

    If you don't want to use the wall hung again, then it can become more involved, depending on whether you can even change to a floor drain or not.

    A black toilet will be almost double the same toilet in white. If insurance was not involved, this would way heavily towards keeping the old one. Of course, it is not a water saver, and at some point depending on where you live, the price of water comes into play.
