No standard height since low one piece toilets need the supply about where he put it, while high toilets for the elderly need a higher than "normal" one to avoid having the supply pipe be too short. His location will probably work as long as he uses a quarter turn shut off valve so the floor does not create a problem rotating the handle to shut it off.

: I am remodeling the bathroom and the plumber put the copper pipe that will have the shut off valve only 2" off the cement floor which will be tiled, leaving less space to the shutt off valve. I called the contractor to ask about this and he said he is going to go through the molding with the pipe. I thought this might be a new way of doing the plumbing, but after looking at model homes, none of them were close to the floor. Should I ask him to correct the problem...is there a standard height?
: Thanks.
