    Anyone know where I can get a close coupled toilet in Ireland with a vertical waste outlet, my searching so far as come up with ordering one from Italy for about €500 euro and waiting for 5-6 weeks for it to be made.
    Current toilet is a low level sitting on a concrete floor with the flange 210/220mm from the wall.

    Very hard one to get. What your looking for is a close coupled s trap pan. Shires was the only place to get them.

    I am pming you a number of a man that might get you one..... Let me know how you get on

    Sorry about that. You would have gotten it from Shires or protim abrasives but they have gone into liquidation.

    Have you considered building a box on the wall and bringing it out. It can be done to a nice effect and will allow you a close coupled standard pan.

    That would mean the toilet being in the middle of the bathroom :D

    No it would no.... What you do is build a box against the wall with a shelf on it. The toilet is then put up against the shelf and the shelf can be used to hold things....


    Very normal in this situation

    Fom the models I've been looking at, because the waste outlet is so far back i would have to move the toilet a long ways forward to be able to attach the waste pipe to the flange.
    Found this one
    http://www.competitiveheatingsupplies.co.uk/acatalog/twyfords-alcona-toilet-pan-bottom-outlet-ar1145.html
    which would mean boxing off 25mm behind the toilet - but that I can live with.
    Only problem is their delivery charges are a tad on the expensive side :eek:
    Wll call them tomorrow and see how much they charge

    Interesting choice. The agent for tha toilet in ireland is Usher bathrooms they might be listed as john usher bathrooms. They will tell you where you can buy it locally. I would never order pottery across the water as a one off. It does not make it.... Ordering it local might make it easier. Check that its a standard toilet seat fitting or you will need to order a spare

    Ebay is your best friend for this. I bought all my sanitary ware from Aquabliss in the Uk and saved 60% on irish prices. They have great quality and deliver fast.

    The op needs a certain toilet.... Not just any one....

    Thanks for that Joey.
    Had a look at their technical catalog and there is a couple of toilets there that have a large clearance for the waste meaning I could get away with them with only a couple of cm's boxing
    Will give Usher a call on Monday and let you know.
    Thanks for all your help

    I'm sorry, but you appear to have taken my post up wrong. I was suggesting that the OP should contact Aquabliss who may have the "certain toilet" in stock or if they don't have it in stock, they will be able to get it from their manufacturer like they did for me when I required a "certain toilet".

    I'm sorry if my point did not come across the way that I meant it to.

    No i did not.. They do not supply s trap pans into the uk market its why its become so difficult to get them. As far as i know its a stupid old irish concpt which old builders fail to address.
