Is your toilet to low for you? | Orbit Plumbing

Orbit’s Plumber Frankston tells us that most toilets all come at a standard seat height of around 450mm. Through the ages, a lot of tall people have had the drama of sitting on a toilet that feels to low to the ground for them. Normally taller people struggle more sitting on the toilet and even some average height people just prefer to sit up a little higher.

Our Mornington Peninsula Plumbers have seen all kinds of modifications that have been done by the Mornington plumbers of the past. We have seen toilets sitting high up on large mounds of concrete, we have seen toilets sitting up high on timber built frames and like the photo below some people build small tiled platforms for their toilet to sit up on.

This does play havoc with the plumbing products that are installed for the toilet as there is a standard height for the waste outlet to sit on the wall of 185mm. The water point will also be sitting higher than it should be so if you are to ever change the height back to normal in the future it would mean that you will have to move the waste and water points.
