In response to Re: rear discharge toilet
A rear outlet toilet and a wall hung toilet can be two different items if the rear outlet one sets on the floor. But if it is a wall hung system, then it needs a carrier fitting and that normally is straight into the stack. The thing that can require an elbow is if the tank is directly behind the bowl and cannot be offset, then the stack behind the center of the bowl would interfere with the tank and the unit would have to be set off to the side of the stack using an elbow.
: I am renovating my bathroom and need to use a rear discharge toilet. We are located on the second floor of a three floor building and must exit into an existing wastepipe.

: We purchased a Duravit wall-hung rear exit toilet with a concealed tank. When it arrived, our plumber said it wouldn't work because there was no installation room for the waste elbow. The manufacturer said the exiting elbow must make a 90 degree turn before exiting into the wastepipe. We can't do that and must go straight back into the existing wastepipe. Any suggestions?
: Help please!
