I would like to replace my second floor toilet which is an old Sanitarios Maracay which doesn't appear to be available in the New York area. My question is, is the drain opening the bowl sits on a standard size? I know I need to purchase a particular size since there is a cement platform but I'm not sure about the drain opening.

New York is amazing for giving fines to anyone caught installing anything but a 1.6 GPF or less

As for drain opening it is either 3" or 4"

To cover another toilets "foot print" try getting a Crane with a big foot as the base is made larger to conceal other toilet foot prints in most cases

Thanks for your reply. I'd rather stay close to the current foot print because the area where I'm installing is small. What is the average cost for a toilet? Is below $200 to cheap?

Yes well below $200 actually I pulled out a Kohler toilet one piece and the lady of the house bought two pice one last year for around $87.00 in a hardware store.

I installed it and not one single stoppage or repair needed.

Like I said Crane does have one with a larger then average foot print cost unknown sorry

I purchased an American Standard because it was the right size for the area where it was installed. I installed it Friday and all went very well. Thanks guys!

I hope you use it in good health.

By the way I used to write on Terry Loves web and he is a great guy but some of the advice givers there are border line incompetent and at most give criminal neglect advice in my humble opinion SO I just stopped bothering to answer on his site.

Terry is a great guy and he gives sound advice
