In response to Re: Toilets that bolt to the wall.
It is a technical point, but they do not bolt to the wall. They actually bolt to a substantial cast iron plumbing fitting in the wall, called a "carrier". The carrier has to be installed with the plumbing pipes and bolted to the wall studs for additional rigidity. There are still companies that make a reaidential wall hung toilet with a conventional tank.
: My wife wants me to buy toilets for our new house that bolt to the wall so it's easier to clean underneath. I have seen commercial models like this but they have no bowl. Are there any with a bowl and what structural and plumbing adaptations need to be made to accomodate this system?
