    Morning all,

    Thinking of going the route of a wall hung toilet in a new downstairs bathroom. The waste comes up through the floor in around the right place (give or take, I've not actually measured it).

    Only thing is I need to add in some kind of access branch or boss because the waste is the only point of exit - so I need to plumb a few other bits into it and an AAV.

    I just wondered if anybody had firsthand experience of how flexible the frame is with such things?

    Not sure I fully understand, the frame is around 35mm square metal tubing fixed to wall & floor in at least 4 points and often the flush pipe and the pan connector are clamped in place.
    I am sure that you mean more than this so would an installation download help you.

    There's zero room for anything behind the frame other than the bend with the reducer up to 4". If you go left or right with the grohe you will need to grind a chunk out the metal frame. If you get a geberit it will work without hacking the frame.

    As above. Frame only has no space for any other connections.
    If you're putting in a whole false wall and/or have access under floor (ie suspended floor) you have scope for further waste runs and connections.
    Need some sketches of plans and elevations really, to try and assist you further.

    Cheers guys, appreciate all your responses. I will try and draw out the dimensions and explain a bit more.

    To be honest, I've actually ordered the frame as I think it'll make more sense when I get it and I do have a fallback plan
