    What is the shortest roughin (drain center to back wall surface) possible for a toto neorest 500 and a neorest 550? Can I get away with 11.5"? 11.25?

    I'm looking for experience based answers rather than the toto party line, especially regarding the total length front to back and wall clearance; usually the toto drawings are very good. The dimensioning on the spec sheets for the neorests I found was a bit unclear, and postings elsewhere seem to indicate the tolerances are a bit tighter on these than most totos. Or perhaps the spec sheet is telling the truth and there's no wiggle room at all?

    The plumber, in spite of telling him I will have 1" (sheetrock +tile) of wall covering, left me a distance of 12.5" from framing to drain center.
    I have a suspicion by the time the sheetrock and tile are added that I'm screwed.

    thanks,
    Happy non-electric toto owner with ambitious spouse

    11.5" works on both. Been there, done that!
