Just so, where is the toilet drain located?
The standard placement for a toilet drain in the bathroom is 12 inches from the wall behind the toilet. The 12-inch measurement runs from the wall itself to the dead center of the drain.
Likewise, how far from Wall should toilet drain be? Standard drywall is 1/2 inch thick, so the plumber should set the toilet flange at least 15-1/2 inches from the center of the flange to the wall framing. The standard distance from the back wall is 12 inches, or 12-1/2 inches from the center of the flange to the wall framing.
Also to know, can you cap off a toilet drain?
Turn the cap firmly into place with your hand. Cap off the drain with a toilet cover. These are generally made of rubber or the cap is PVC with a rubber skirt. They literally cap off the drain while the skirt is clamped around the pipe with hose clamps using a screwdriver or small wrench.
Can a toilet and shower share the same drain?
Your shower drain can connect to the toilet drain, but it cannot connect to the toilet trap arm. So if your "main drain connection" is also the vent for the toilet, the line from the closet flange to the main drain connection is trap arm and the answer is no, the shower cannot tie in here.
