Scott:--Now is the time to deal with a problem that may conme back to haunt you later on. Re: your 9" rough in toilet, instead of taking the easy way to expedite your building program and installing an off-set flange... consider this.
Off-set flanges are not allowed in many areas for good reason....they don't work as well; especially with the new 1.6 gpf toilets. It's not as difficult as you might imagine to peck up the concrete and rough it in properly. Sometimes all that is needed is a couple of street 1/16th bends to get you on target. And besides most toilet are less money if they are a 12" Rough. Lots of luck...Bud.

I am finishing of an existing plumbed bathroom in my basement. It is a 30yr old house with concrete slab. The drain pipe for a new toilet has only a 9 inch center for it. I am seeing that most toilets out there range from either 10-14 inch. Is there any manufacture that you know of that might make a 9 inch or what kind of modifications do I need to make. Thanks, Scott
