Re: Toilet Rough-In Confusion?
I find it's a regional thing when it comes to having a space between the tank and wall --- some areas do not ---- some do.
Problem is when they are tight to the wall and if the floor is not level ( slopes back toward the wall ) the tank will hit the wall if the toilet isn't shimmed level.
Then it becomes a pain to try and get the tank lid on and off.
Doubtful the toilet was for a 14" roughin --- it wouldn't fit , period.
The only other possiblity that I can think of is that the toilet I recieved was a 14" rough-in. I have a second bathroom roughed-in but I have not purchased the toilet yet. I need to know if I should order a 10" if I want a little space behind it.
I don't know if you would want to put in a 10" roughin toilet --- it may look out of place.
Normally I would set the flange for a 12 1/2" to allow that little extra space.
