I would like to remodel a small bathroom. We have a slab foundation, what would it take to move a toilet about 2.5 ft, and rotate it 90 degr.?
Rotating the toilet is no major problem. The toilet flange is slotted to allow you to readjust it. If it is not the way you want it then they sell adapter flanges that you can place on the existing flange. To move it you are going to have to break up the slab foundation to reach the sewer pipes underground. If you move the toilet in the direction the pipes are going then you will only need to bust out about 3 feet. If you move it away from the direction of the exiisting pipe, then you will have to break it up until you reach the main sewer line. The slabs generally are not that thick so it probably can be accomplished with a small sledge hammer and chisel. HAVE FUN!!!
