Toilet water connection

Good afternoon, all. Iím finding the need to install a Thetford Toilet Riser under my Dometic 320 series toilet; hope it fits. Anyway, the riser lifts the toilet 2 1/2 inches and thereís not even 1/4 inch slack in the input water line. I need an extension with female on one end to screw on the toilet, and male on the other to screw into the existing fitting on the input. What size are those fittings? Iíve checked my documents; canít find it. I need to do the install in the morning, so off to Loweís I go. Need a speedy answer, if possible.

I would use a pex splice and a piece in the middle of what came from the factory.

You'll likely not find anything premade that would work, but th fitting is likely 1/2". If you know someone with a PEX crimper it would just take a couple of dollars of fittings and a few inches of 1/2" PEX to make what you need.

Lowes had everything I needed. The store I visited had different lengths and various colors. I used a hose clamp.

My provider line is Blue and appears to be 1/2 inch PEC pipe. Can anyone verify that pipe diameter?

Why not just add a toilet seat raiser? A or less work to accomplish the same thing.

If you have nothing constructive or nice to say, just keep it to yourself. Any other reply will show your true colors.

I have one already and they are a pain to maintain. Not to mention feet dangling while sitting, but the man’s part points right at the crack between the actual rim and the riser. If you’re not careful, you’ll get up with a wet backend and won’t even know it til you reach for your pants/shorts. Also you must be careful with the hose. Many times we have soaked ourselves and the floor when we have used it to rinse the bowl. Honestly, it’s a PITA and I would never recommend one. If you want to pay shipping, I’ll Clorox clean and give it to you. And, I haven’t even mentioned trying to keep it clean after each use, and I’m a clean person.

Probably too late to help, but it sounds like the easiest fix is a Sharkbite repair union. It is about 4-5” long and is designed to fill a small gap in a pipe repair. And yes, 1/2” pex

Port, that's a good idea; never seen it before. Thanks
