In response to Re: Toilet replacement with a radiator behind it
What type of radiator? Is it steam - or hot water? I assume that it is an old style cast iron radiator. I have replace a steam radiator with a 'baseboard' looking radiator with good results. This would put the radiator no higher that 8" from the floor. Same for an old style radiator being used for (converted for) hot water use. Then you may have many more options regarding the toilet.

: I have to replace a 1931 toilet (12" waste) in my first floor bathroom. There is a cast iron radiator that runs behind the toilet. The water supply is at 14" above the floor and 7" to the left of the center of the toilet. The radiator is 2 1/2" deep and 10" high. What is the best toilet to use? The foot print of the toto toilets will hit the radiator at the floor and the supply pipe hits the tank. American std. cadet and the kohler wentworh will work with the radiator, but I have to move the supply pipe. I don't have a problem with relocating the suppy, but the radiator has to stay. Any suggestions on which toilet is better or another brand that will work. I would like to use gravity feed since this bathroom is next to the bedroom.
: Thanks
