    Hi I hope you can help me with my plumbing problem. I bought a toilet fr vintage tub and bath its a Randolph Morris Two Piece Toilet . It toilet bolts in the back and has a hollow base. I tried using a wax gasket but there is nothing there to hold it in place. The P trap is a 3 in 4 in in total.I called plumbers in the area and i was to many supply shops but no one could help. I'm attaching pictures of the base of the toilet in hopes that you will have the solution Thank You

    I went on the Randolph Morris site and I don't see where they sell toilets with their name, their toilets are made by somebody else and they just carry them. You are going to need the exact brand and model of the toilet before we can help with your problem; pictures of the COMPLETE toilet would help also.

    Sort of looks like it is designed to bolt to the floor since there are no means to utilize the flange bolts. But, if you get the thing centered well, it should be able to seal. I'd consider using a waxless seal with it. This would fit around the throat and then down into the drain pipe. Problem is, it might slide up on the horn before it fully engages the inside of the pipe to make a seal.

    Randolph Morris makes the toilet for Vintage tub and bath there is no brand or model on the toilet. On the shipping label all thats there is that its a Randolph Morris RM5000 YP-A2 . I have called Vintage and they dont seem to know . i bought a waxless seal today but there dont seem to be enough of a edge for it to sit on. The glue will not touch any where since the top of the waxless seal is larger than the P trap. I also googled for hours trying to find another toilet like this with no luck.Im including a picture a of the toilet. :)

    One might ask, "Why did you buy this thing?" It doesn't look too bad on the outside, but there's nothing spectacular about it either. It's clearly a weird toilet of unknown origin. I'd take the thing back.

    A spigot like that normally goes into a flange adapter.
