    Default Correct term for this type of toilet?

    What's the correct descriptive term for a toilet which has a base which rests on the floor but which discharges to the rear above floor level (picture attached).

    I have seen wall-mounted toilets before, but not one like that. I would probably label it a "rear-discharge", but I don't know the official term.

    That is a 'rear outlet' or 'rear discharge' floor mount.

    It is different from a wall mount in that it is still supported by the floor, however, it is the same as a wall mount as it is it 'rear outlet' or 'rear discharge'.

    Wash-out wall mounted pedestal (floor supported instead of cantilever, or wall hung -- but it is still a wall mounted pedestal) toilet stool (bowl) with (assuming not just a bend) integral P-trap (instead of the usual integral S-trap, S for siphon, floor discharge toilet usually found in residences) with a close-coupled storage tank (cistern).

    ..with an apparent history of seal problem/leaks at the fixture discharge (soil/waste) connection .

    Actually that looks to be (the photo shows just enough to entice this presumption, but not enough to confirm it) an integral S-trap like a regular floor mount toilet has, except instead of having the floor/bottom discharge/outlet it has a rear/wall discharge/outlet.

    The ones you are describing do not have that downward bend in the integral trap (which now makes it into the 'S') and have a horizontal discharge of the ones you are describing.

    And what's the correct name on the vertical soil stack that accepts the discharge?

    And for extra credit, anyone want to take a crack at identifying the source of this:

    Well, you got the name correct "soil stack", but what I think you might be asking for is the name of the fitting that mounts to is a flange made for that purpose (does NOT use a wax seal, uses a neoprene gasket). A wall hung rear outlet toilet requires a wall carrier to support the toilet in the wall ("carry" the toilet).

    Try this:
    American Standard 2325.101 Yorkville Two Piece Elongated Toilet with Rear Outlet
    http://www.faucetdirect.com/mediabas...cSheet_146.pdf

    By the way, the correct name for that toilet is floor mounted rear outlet from what I've been able to find.

    And for extra credit, anyone want to take a crack at identifying the source of this:
    I see a beetle in there.

    "Floor mounted rear outlet toilet" it is. Thanks!
