Help & advice
If you’re replacing your toilet, look for highly efficient (HET) or ultra-low flush (ULF) toilets to minimise water use. Or to save on your budget, buy a cistern displacement / water saving device.
Moving a toilet involves more than just rearranging the furniture. It could be worth it in order to make the most of your space or increase privacy, however it will add to the overall time required to complete the project, which, in turn, increases the cost.
Still keen? The key question is how would the soil pipe get to the new position?
The soil pipe - the wide pipe that carries the waste water and solids away from the toilet - is usually located under or behind your toilet.
Moving where the toilet is will mean either relocating the soil pipe to enter the room from a different part of the wall / floor or routing inside the room, built into a false wall or unit or just disguised with simple boxing in.
