    We are replacing 18 year old toilets and need advice on installation issues having to do with current placement of water supply lines. We want have skirted toilets if possible and do not want to have to move supply lines- waterlines come through the floor, not the wall. Are we going to have any problems with any of these selections?

    1 Daughter's room- water supply line is 3 inches out from wall between 4 1/2 and 5 inches from center of toilet-bolts are approximately 6 inches centered 12 inches from wall
    We would like to use the Vespin II or Soiree
    2 Master -- waterline approximately 6 1/2 in from center of bowl and 3.5 inches from back wall
    We would like to use Soiree or Guinevere
    3 Utility -- waterline is 3 in from back wall and 4.25 to 4.5 inches from center
    We would like to use Aimes or VespinII
    4 Guest --Waterline is 4 in out from wall and approximately 6.5 in to center
    We would like to use Guinevere or Soiree

    Thank you for any suggestions.

    These are all pretty tight, but some might work, and some will need the supply moved. (It's different when it comes out of the wall because you can just install a right angle (a "90" in plumber-speak) and run it along the wall until it is clear of the toilet.) One thing that it would be helpful to know is the dimension to the "inside" of the pipe. That is, from the centerline to the side of the supply pipe that is closest to the toilet; i.e. the room for the toilet to fit between the centerline and the pipe. Can you measure that for us?

    Ok-I appreciate your response and understand that the the fit may be tight. We measured what you suggested and I have added that dimension for each of the rooms. The toilets in the Utility Room and Guest Bath have easy access from the unfinished basement and we are redoing the floors so we could have the line moved but would rather not have that extra expense. The other two are on the second floor - would have to tear up teh floor to move. Please let us know what you think about the models we want. Thanks.

    1 Daughter's room- water supply line is 3 inches out from wall between 4 1/2 and 5 inches from center of toilet-bolts are approximately 6 inches centered 12 inches from wall
    4.25 edge water line to center
    We would like to use the Vespin II or Soiree
    2 Master -- waterline approximately 6 1/2 in from center of bowl and 3.5 inches from back wall- 6.25 edge to center
    We would like to use Soiree or Guinevere
    3 Utility -- waterline is 3 in from back wall and 4.25 to 4.5 inches from center - 6in inside edge water line to center
    We would like to use Aimes or VespinII
    4 Guest --Waterline is 4 in out from wall and approximately 6.5 in to center - 3.75 edge to center
    We would like to use Guinevere or Soiree

    These measurements may be off by .25 in. Does that help you get a picture of the spacing? Do we need to go with non skirted models?
    Thanks you for your help.

    Do I need more or different information to help determine if one of these Toto toilets will fit? Any suggestions? Thanks. We hate to get involved with moving the water lines.

    We did measure what someone had suggested "One thing that it would be helpful to know is the dimension to the "inside" of the pipe.
