Sometimes you might need a small 24 inch toilet or 25 inch depth toilet for a space constrained, small bathroom or to replace an old toilet of that size. Unfortunately popular toilet brands and stores don’t offer these size toilets anymore. However, there are couple of 24 to 25 inch toilet models from some new brands that might help you.
Here are those 24 inch and 25 inch toilet depth models that will be ideal for saving space and creating more leg room in small bathrooms and powder rooms. The first is the very popular 24.5 inch Galba Small toilet on Amazon, which has been selling like hot cakes on online stores for about five years now. The other is the
Horow Small Toilet (unfortunately no longer available in the market). There is also a slightly larger and high-end toilet from Kohler. It is the 25.6 inch KOHLER San Souci toilet (Amazon link here).
The reason for the scarcity of small toilets like 24-25 inch are new toilet laws like the ADA legislation and minimum toilet space requirements that were introduced in the last few decades. These resulted in an increase in toilet size to comfortable elongated bowls and increases in overall size. So currently normal toilets are 30 inches or more long and any toilet that is shorter than 28 inches in length is considered as a compact toilet. Even many models sold as small compact toilets by popular brands like Toto, Kohler and American Standard measure around 26 to 28 inches in length.
Toilet Models Between 24 inches And 25 Inches
The top choice of people looking for a toilet with 24/25 inch depth today is the GALBA SMALL TOILET on Amazon. At 24.5 inches, it’s 6 inches shorter than a regular toilet.
Galba toilet is a one-piece compact dual flush toilet that comes with great half flush rates of 0.8 GPF and standard 1.6 GPF flush rate for its full flush. The elongated bowl makes it more comfortable to use and is a surprise to see in the toilet with the smallest toilet depth. Overall Galba small toilet measures 24.5″ long, 13.5″ wide and 28.5″ high and is a floor mount toilet with an elongated bowl.
When you see the reliability and reputation of Galba small toilet, it is made in China and marketed in the USA by ‘Luxury Modern Home’ a company based in East Hanover, NJ. It has been in the market since 2013 and going by sales on online stores, you can see it has been selling like hot cakes since then. It has also got a very good reputation not only as the smallest floor mounted toilet but also as a fully functional compact toilet. (At the time of this writing, it had got eighty plus reviews on Amazon and more than 75% of them were 5-star reviews from verified Amazon purchasers.)
The second smallest toilet is the 25 inches long HOROW Small Toilet. (Amazon link here) The HOROW Small toilet is 25″ Long, 13.4″ Wide and 28.3″ High. The sellers describe it as a “One Piece Short Compact Bathroom Tiny Mini Commode Water Closet Dual Flush Concealed Trapway.” Horow toilet is a new entry but many people have bought it on Amazon and have left glowing comments saying they love it and its awesome.
In appearance HOROW looks very much the Galba toilet, so much so that I asked a question on its Amazon page whether it was the same Galba toilet sold under a different name. The seller “HOROW” responded saying, that the toilet is very similar to the galba small toilet, but not completely same. They claimed there are little difference in the size and look. Price wise HOROW toilet is much cheaper and quality and flushing seems good if you go by reviews on Amazon.
These two are the only two toilet models you might find today that are shorter than 25 inches. Many people looking for even 23 inch or 24 inch toilets have got this toilet because there is no shorter toilet other than going for an expensive wall mount toilet remodel or an electric Upflush Macerating toilet.
There are no toilets that measure exactly 24 or 25 inches in depth. These models are bit shorter or longer than 25 inches yet ideal for a 24 or 25 inch toilet requirement.
25 to 26 Inch Compact Toilets
However, if you are okay with a toilet with a depth between 25 to 27 inches, you have a few more toilet models to choose from including toilets from the best brands like Kohler and Toto.
KOHLER one of the top 3 toilet brands also has a model in the 25 inch length toilet range. Its the 25.625 inches long KOHLER San Souci K-4007-0. This is a round-front toilet with a 1.28 GPF flush rate. Its overall dimensions are 25.625 inches in length, 14.5 inches width and 24.25 inches tall.
The Duravit Stark line of toilets come in many variations and one of them is the close coupled Duravit 0128090000 Starck 3 Toilet. It measures 25.8 inches in depth and can be another option for you.
26 to 28 Inch Compact Toilets
Normally when people look for toilets they want to buy one from one of the top 3 Toilet brands of Toto, Kohler or American Standard. Unfortunately except for the Kohler model mentioned above there are no other toilets shorter than 26 inches from these top 3 brands.
The smallest Toto toilet is the TOTO Drake 1.6 GPF Round Bowl 2 Piece Toilet with E-Max Flush System with Model No. CST743SR#01. This Toto Drake model measures 26.375 inches lengthwise, 19.5 inches wide and 28.5 tall overall. Its known as great flushing toilet and has received very good toilet ratings.
The shortest American Standard toilet is a bit than the short Toto Drake. Its the 26.75 inches long American Standard 2887218.020 H2Option Siphonic toilet. Its a dual flush toilet with a normal height seat and elongated toilet bowl design.
However even these 26″ plus toilet models from the top 3 toilet brands can become longer when installed. That’s because when you install them on a standard 12 inch toilet rough-in, they become 27.5 inches or more with the tank clearance distance they leave from the wall.
In addition to these there is also a 26.5 inch Swiss Madison Ivy one-piece toilet. Its a dual flush model with 0.8/1.28 GPF flush rate and measures 26.5″ depth, 14″ width and 29″ height.
So overall the Galba small toilet is your best choice if you want a 24 inch toilet or a 25 inch length toilet model.
