    started a topic WTF toilet!

    WTF toilet!

    I get a call at a customers house about a toilet giving her problems ect ect...

    I get there and find a toilet from hell!

    - One piece
    - Solid brass guts (evey part that moves in this toilet is wore out)
    - Wall mounted (2 large bolts)
    - Rear Flush

    My guess is that in is a very old Kohler 40-50 years ( I will get a pic on Monday)

    I have to admit I am a bit intimidated

    Your thoughts....

    I always get the weird calls!!

    Okie

    I like having a wall hung toilet in a residential home. We had that same Crane 3000 in the house I grew up in. It's great for keeping the floor clean. (5 boys )

    I remember the plumber coming to work on it. I came home from school one day and found it sitting in my bedroom on some newspaper. It was 2 weeks before he came back to rehang it.

    Mom always said she was going to marry a plumber in her next life

    The one's I've changed out had carriers in the wall, and the problem with the toilets was not one of a bad carrier install, just early 1.6's

    I was shocked to say the least when I saw the wall mounted toilets in a trac.

    I've done plenty of wall hung toilets but they were all mounted on carriers. I've set back-flush, floor mounted toilets that got anchored to the floor. But never seen or installed one of these. What do you have in the wall for this to hang on with only two bolts?

    I think American Standard makes (or at least a couple of years ago made) a wall mount rear outlet tank toilet with a flushmate in it. There is a couple of neighborhoods that I work in that all had early 1.6gpf wall hung toilets in them, and I have replaced a few with these due to poor flushing.

    Sounds like you may have a case toilet. Does it look like this. If it is they are a very good toilet. It was the Cadillac of it's time. Parts are still very available and can be repaired quite easily.

    Given, but when my regular supplier tells me a month, three days looks very good and the price is not that much different.
