      9" rough-in!! There is no such thing as a 9" rough-in or 16" rough-in. Only 10,12, and 14. I have started going to 13" rough-in from stud wall. Because some of the newer toilets, the bowls being longer hit the shoe mold or 1/4 round on the floor.

        I was an inspector(in another state). Attics and crawl spaces where not impediments to my inspections. Plumbers(not owners)first hand reputations where a bonus in difficult situations.
        In the state I inspected in I was required to have a minimum of a journeyman's license and five year experience(plus continuing ED)...MIMIMUM!

          you misinterpret, I'm referring to a flange "incorrectly" roughed in at 9 or 16 because a truss falls in an inconvienient place, not a purchasable product.
          No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

            You would be the exception to the rule in the States I work in. We have combined inspectors for residential out here. Because of the work I do I have inspector certificates with IAMPO, ICC and ICBO. When I have to sit for a test with a room full of inspectors I am in an out in 15 minutes than wait 4-hours for the second half of the test. Some of the inspectors use the entire 3-hours and still don't finish.

                I didn't find myself to be an exception in that state. I'm no plumbing Einstein, but I'm competent.

                  Good observation! I agree. Generally when one aspect is off,every thing needs a close look
                  I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

                    So is it roughed in wrong or not?

                        I haven't read all of the other posts but I believe you can a 10" W/C in there without much problem.

                        Something else clogged & caused the leak. That's why it happened much later rather than in the first month.

                          I don't know how the home warranty system works in NC, or if they even have one, but here in NJ it is 10 years on a new home and it doesn't matter how many times its sold. Whoever owns it at the time is covered in that 10 years.
                          same here. 10 years on latent defects/ hidden and 1 year on everyday seen issues. such as a toilet or faucet leaking.

                          dunbar, toto makes some great toilets that have a subbase that fit 10,12, 14''. the subbase requires bolting to the floor and typical water ruff usually requires 8'' left of c/l.

                            an offset closet ring is not legal here/ upc.

                            an inspector doesn't measure the ruff in's, but he will spot an offset closet ring

                              No offsets where this picture was taken either.

                                Most JD's require 15" off center for toilets. Why should " and typical water ruff usually requires 8'' left of c/l. " make a difference?
                                Did I miss something?
