    Default Help - 10th Floor Flat Toilet Cracked, Existing S-Trap Rough in 370mm

    The toilet (and building) is about 18 years old. The existing S-trap rough in is approx 370mm. Because this is a strata building and all toilets above and below me are aligned, I got no hope of changing that. I don't know how much longer the cracked toilet will hold (cracks are at the base and widening), but I am having a lot of trouble locating toilets with this spec. Maximum I believe is 305mm S-trap rough in, but they all appear to be on alibaba only and from overseas.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a Sydney metro retailer who can supply (and install) a toilet suite with the required S-trap rough in?

    Totally new to this. No idea what to do.

    Please help me.

    Your body corporate may have access to a plumber who does maintenance around the building, and who may also be able to supply the correct toilet pan. Good luck.

    Not sure on how fussy you would be on the suite, but either way a 380mm set out will limit your options. You can use something like this ---> Base Link Toilet Suite | Reece Bathroom Products which has an exposed flush pipe. It comes with a standard flush pipe to suit 150-200mm set out, but you can also buy extended ones (bottom of this page Plastec Australia - Innovative Plumbing Solutions - Flush Pipes) to get you out further.

    Hope this helps.

    I would speak to the body corporate manager first, you may not be the first to have this problem and if that is the case they may well have a solution or supplier for you.

    You'll find the body corporate won't be interested. You'll have to settle for a pretty standard type of toilet suite unfortunately.
    Pretty ordinary for a whole building to be built with such a set out.
