|In response to Re: Replacing an old toilet in Manhatten?|
I have seen that some manufacturers make corner toilets: the tank is is the corner, and the bowl comes out diagonally. This may be a better option if you have some clearence on the side.
The other responders must not have experience with NYC rents and rent control. I assume that you are buying the toilet? And a NYC licensed plumber will install it? Putting it up on a platform to accomodate the unique plumbing is an option. Some toilets have very low seats, they would be best.
Also, there are reproduction toilets made with wall tanks. But I don't know who makes them, or what the bowl looks like.
: The bowl is by GERBER--the opening is 10 3/4 " in diameter, the porcelain is 14" on the top surface (edge to edge), 8" deep where it joins with (into) the metal base. The porcelain commode is about 4" from the wall. The edge of the seat is about 22" from the wall--the oval seat does not properly fit the round shaped bowl. The sewage pipe is about 4" in dia. and snakes from the bottom base in a modified "S" shape into the wall behind. This discharge pipe sets about 3� from the floor, but I am not sure if you are supposed the measure from, center of pipe, bottom or top.
: The high tank is wood, lined with metal and sits 7' from the floor. The long water pipe is brass, and is hooked up with chrome piping of the same diameter, about 1 3/8 inches. Tank hangs adjacent, not behind commode. Toilet without connecting tank surely saves on space. But I don�t know if this is available/made any more.
: Your recommendations are helpful and appreciated. Even if you know a closer supplier, who you can refer me, it would be a life safer.
: Thank you.
