In response to Re: We have only a 10" rough in for the toilet
: : We are remodeling our lower level (of a raised ranch) bathroom and have only a 10" rough in for the toilet. We are considering replacing our old 3.? gallon flushing Mansfield with either a Caroma Tasman 2-piece, or a Toto Vespin 2-piece. Our local plumbing store advised snaking out the lines and keeping our old toilet because of the greater amount of water used in a flush. Any advice on this or on either of these two toilets? We have lots of toilet plugging problems now.

: J Stangel,
: Either of these toilets will be less trouble than the one you have.
: Plugs occur at the toilet, not the main line.
: I would go for the new toilet idea.

We too have 10" rough in. We had to change immediately due to a crack in the old unit. We chose an American Standard Cadet round front bowl 3454-016-020 with Amer Std Compact tank 4010-012-020. This combination is 10". So far no clogs in 3 months. This was the only 10" rough in at Home D---- and was about $110. Anything else, we would have to order with possible weeks of delay.
Supposedly, there are 10" models of the Toto Carusoe 703, 704, 713, 714. None locally except special order. Terry Love said the 703 was rather splashy.
