In response to Re: Asian Toilet installation
I'm sorry to say that a squat toilet is probably illegal under your local plumbing code. Unless you are in a no-code area, you may have to use a conventional toilet with a squat platform (like the ones from www.naturesplatform.com) to satisfy your need to squat.

That being said, one suggestion (seriously) is to contact your local mosque. Many mosques install squat toilets (presumably their religious status overrides the plumbing code). If so they might be able to give you the name of the local plumber who did the installation who in turn might be able to tell you whether it's worth your while to plead your case to the plumbing inspector.

Good luck.
