Why is my toilet on a raised platform?
Likewise, people ask, can a toilet be raised?
Raised toilets seats can range from 2 to 6 inches above the original seat height. There are also a variety of wider options than regular toilet seats. It's also possible to get toilet seats with adjustable heights and widths, if you're not sure which size to get.
Beside above, what is a back flush toilet? Back outlet toilets connect to a plumbing "rough-in" positioned on a bathroom wall rather than on the floor. They use a toilet connection located at the back of the bowl rather than the more common placement of directly below the bowl. All toilets have to connect to a sewer line to dispose of waste.
Then, how do you build a raised platform for a bathroom?
How to Build a Platform for a Bathtub
- Check the height of the platform that your tub requires and calculate the height of the platform wall studs.
- Nail the studs to the top and bottom plates to form the walls for the platform.
- Secure the wall framework to the floor with nails, and use deck screws to cover the framework with plywood to make the deck.
Can toilet flange be higher than floor?
With the toilet removed, you can see the toilet flange and measure its height above the floor. Optimum flange height to aim for is 1/4 inch above the finished floor. This typically allows for almost any type of wax ring to be used and still ensure a good seal.
