Question DetailsAsked on 4/2/2014

where can I buy a handicapped height toilet?

I need a handicapped (tall) height toilet for my elderly father. The base height must be 18 inches high, not including the seat. I have looked at all the "ADA" and "Comfort Height" and "Chair Height" toilets but they are less than 18 inches. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

These Products are readily available at LOWES and HOMEDEPOT .

The measured Heights are toilet heights Without SEATS .

Usually , the Seats are extra unless you buy a TOILET KIT

which comes with the Toilet , Seat ,Wax ring ,Supply line and mounting hardware.

The heights reccomended are usually average heights .

When inspected for CODE Compliance ,the above reccomended sources and PRODUCTS

will comply with the ADA requirements !

I have completed many ADA Standards , Remodeled Bathrooms and the products Sold at

the above referenced Sources have always passed muster !

Best of LUCK , Hope this answer resolves your fears !

As Ben said - home improvement stores and plumbing supply house carry a model or few of these, and can order many different heights and >

Another option, either separate or combined with a taller stool, is a booster seat - look like this -

Some mount like a normal toilet seat (make sure it will stay up when tilted up - many are too thick to mount on many toilet models, depending on how far back the tank it set), some just press-fit into the existingbowl (obviously, have to fit to particular manufacturer bowl shape), some fit over and around the bowl. Some have assist arms on the side too. Typically about $50-125 range for the seat only.

This is the sort of thing you need to go to the store to look at, and take along a cutout newspaper template of the bowl outline and inner ring size and seat mounting hole location all the way back to the tank if fitting for current toilet, or look at as a set if buying a new toilet. Pay attention to how it fits - some just perch on top of the bowl, which is not very stable - you want one that pressfits or bolts into the seat bolt holes.

The home improvement stores listed do not carry such toilets. You would need to go to a handicapped store if you need the height to be 18 inches without the seat. Comfort height toilets are designed to be about 18 inches but that includes the seat.

You need to look for the type of toilet that is put onto the wall. I found a Kohler for $4,300 a little much for me maybe not for you. I am looking for 20" toilet and if I find a more reasonable one I will post. I do believe I saw a 18" on the Kohler web. Good luch if you haven't found one yet.
