I actually don't think it does. To me it looks like a mistake. Looks like you installed it too close to the wall. But that is because I am used to it.Just admit toilets against the wall look better, they have better function even though you have never seen a cracked cistern I have. Only 4 in 5 years but it happens. I don't work for a lot of big people so that's why I don't see this happen. There's contractors out there who just deal in bariatric construction. They see it all the time and they would normally not even use a toilet with a cistern as some if these people are so big they can't sit on the pan with a cistern in place and will use a flushomerer or similar.
I like the dig about painting, when it really hasn't been brought up by anyone but yourself. I also like the over exaggeration of the spacing. I think all agreed that 1-2" was acceptable, not 3". But exaggerate and belittle away if you feel it justifies your view.You guys keep installing your cisterns 3" from the walls so you can paint behind them and letting them sweat because you can't figure out a fix to a simple issue the rest if the world figured out years ago lol and I will carry on using the right products and installing them how I install them.
Looks like I'm not using the idiot proof toilets anymore though but you guys should be able to cover the sales for them. If you can't figure out a finished wall distance or how to stop a cistern from sweating then I guess you should steer clear of plumbing lol
RRK I don't know what your issue is with me and my festool but when ever you find a chance to bash my tools you jump on it. I'm sure its just a jealousy thing but you sure make your self look stupid every time you go on about it. Green eyed monster!rrk said:Save all of your money that you spend on Festool and see if you can buy a clue. :whistling
Good think the inventor wasn't from China or India or Russia.... who knows WHAT it would be called!Also seeings the English invented this thing you call a tank I think the inventor knows best what its called. Its a cistern no mater what you call it here in the US.
Good question. I guess if that's its true name as designed then why not. We call vacuum cleaners hoovers in the UK so sometimes names get messed up.Brian Peters said:Good think the inventor wasn't from China or India or Russia.... who knows WHAT it would be called!
Just curious, if an American had invented it would they call it a tank in England?
You have more money than brains, you can't buy brainsRRK I don't know what your issue is with me and my festool but when ever you find a chance to bash my tools you jump on it. I'm sure its just a jealousy thing but you sure make your self look stupid every time you go on about it. Green eyed monster!
But please do add something of value to the thread because all you have proven on this thread so far is your a very jealous person and you know nothing about plumbing.
Where have I said everyone's a hack. This has nothing to do with being a hack and more to do with company's having the true rough in dimensions.rrk said:You have more money than brains, you can't buy brains
Everyone else is a hack to you and you don't have a clue what you are doing
You just got through saying tight to the wall wasn't required. In other words, your way isn't the only way. Sweating is pretty much accepted here - there isn't usually a customer driven requirement. For the one case where the person carpeted their bath, it had to be insulated.I spec what's required for the job special order or not.
