    Closet Bend

    Asked Aug 26, 2005, 09:53 AM 1 Answer
    Hi All,

    So, yes, I'm learning about plumbing. Please excuse the basic question...

    What is unique about a "closet bend" fitting? Also, is it applicable to a wall-mounted rear-drain toilet mounted to a wall with 6-inch studs and a near horizontal drain branch along the wall from the toilet? (Diagram below)

    Cheers,

    David

    Closet bends are simply a quarter bend with a long throat used to pick up a toilet that mounts on the floor. The long end connects to the drain and the short end sticks up to the floor as a stub up to attach a closet flange to. This fitting can't be used with your wall mounted toilet. Your toilet will come with its own connection and mounting bracket. Cheers back! Tom
