How to Install a Wall-Hung Toilet
Remodeler Andrew Grace explains the ins and outs of installing a wall-hung toilet.
Instead of an exposed tank that sits behind the bowl, wall-hung toilets have a tank in the wall, saving about 2 sq. ft. of space. This might not sound like a lot, but it is when you have a small bathroom or when you’re in a wheelchair. Another advantage of wall-hung toilets is that they’re height-adjustable, allowing you to match the bowl height to the user’s preference. This is especially valuable to folks with mobility issues; having the bowl the same height as a wheelchair makes it easier to transition from the chair to the toilet and back.
But you don’t have to be in a wheelchair to see the perks of wall-hung toilets. They also look great and the uninterrupted floor below the bowl is easy to keep clean. In this video, remodeler Andrew Grace demonstrates the installation of a Toto model (about $1000), but similar models are available from Kohler, Geberit, and others, and the installation process is virtually the same across brands.
