In response to Re: Wall Mount Toilet
: : 28 years ago, a wall mounted toilet(outflow not going down through the floor) with the outflow going straight into the basement to the septic tank was installed in my home. The tank hoding water to fill the bowl once it was flushed, cracked.Replacement tank is not available per the "plumber" hired to install new hardware. To replace the whole thing would require ALOT of new plumbing! What is your recommendation?

: Reply:
: Locating a replacement toilet tank may be impossible.
: The plumbing can remain untouched (if it's in good condition) if you install the exact same style toilet. Go to a local plumbing supply house and see what's available or go to Kohlers, American Standards, Toto's, etc. websites. They all have pictures and specs for plumbing fixtures.
: Good Luck. e-plumber

I had the same problem with a cracked tank install in my wall in 1959. I did extensive search attempting to find a suitable replacement. At the time, located nothing reasonably acceptable. I solved the problem by having a glass/window firm make me a custom tank out of plexiglass. That was five years ago and no problems whatsoever.

I am now involved in a remodeling project and considering replacing with updated wall mounts. Porcher also has some units and there seems to be a number of vendors in the UK. I have not yet learned the difference between their requirements and ours. For UK, do a google search on back-to-wall toilet. For US, wall-mount toilet yields the best results.

Good luck
