Distance To Sidewall


What is the minimum distance from the toilet flange to the sidewall?

Rebuilding some partition walls in basement bathroom and might adjust wall to fit plumbing on other side that serves the washer and dryer.

This is in my own home.

Re: Distance To Sidewall


If you read the original post i am not doing any plumbing work, im replacing a wall that is in between bathroom and washroom.

Maybe i should of said i have 16" to center of flange now but didnt know what or if it could be less than that. Wall was built to 1 1/2 now but would like to make it a full stud if possible

15" from the finished side wall, but it might be different in your code, that is way I say, it will tell you in your code book.

That pic in the upper left reminds me of something I did as a helper years back. I was setting an elongated toilet where a round front used to be and the door wouldn't clear the toilet. DOH!

closed when you set the stool.
