When I searched online for the tallest toilets you can buy, the search result I found were not very accurate and comprehensive. So I did some in-depth research and created this post to list down and discuss about all the tallest tall toilets currently on sale in the US market. If you are looking for the tallest toilets for elderly, disable and tall persons, I think this post will help you make a informed buying decision while saving time.
However, if you are in a hurry and wondering what is the tallest toilet you can buy, the answer is the Signature Hardware 945956 Bradenton toilet (Check at Amazon #Ad). This toilet has a 21-inch bowl height and 22 inch toilet seat height which makes it about one-inch taller than the next tallest. You can compare all its key features with the next 5 tallest toilet models currently for sale in the below chart.
5 Tallest Tall Toilets Comparison Chart
The ADA compliant toilets height range is between 17 to 19 inches of seat height (from the floor to the top of the seat). But most toilets sold as tall toilets or ADA toilet height models are just barely touching it with a 17 or 17 1/2-inch seat height only.
I’ve been into marketing toilets for nearly five years now and so far I’ve come across only couple of 18 inch seat height toilets like the Kohler Highline toilet and Kohlar Santa Rosa toilet, and only one 19 inch seat high toilet.
The 19 inch toilet which is the tallest ADA recommended seat height toilet, I’ve come across is the Signature Hardware Stalnaker toilet. This 19 inch toilet is ideal for people with a height of around 5′ 11″ feet.
A above 6 footer person might feel even the 19-inch highest height ADA compliant toilet is short. So the 20 inch high Convenient Height toilet will be good for around 6′ 2″ feet tall person.
But for very tall person like 6′ 4″ and above the new 21 inch bowl height Bradenton Toilet from Signature Hardware will be the most comfortable. I saw online reviews on Amazon from people as tall as 6′ 8″ saying this 21-inch high Bradenton model has been a wonderful toilet for him. He finds it much more comfortable than the ADA recommended comfort height toilets he’s been forced to use until now.
Note, most tallest toilets are not cheap. However your toilet is one of the best things you can invest to increase your comfort and peace of mind at home while attending to your personal needs. So its worth the extra splash.
However the tall toilets I’ve listed here are not as expensive as they use to be. If you go to stores that sell equipment and supplies for disabled and handicapped people you might find a obscure toilet model or two. But most often them cost upward of thousand dollars because they are rare and custom built.
Also tall toilets are made in limited quantity and there are only a few models available in the market. There is lot of design and engineering challenges that go into making toilets. That’s why there are so few toilet manufacturers in a country as large as America with the most advance technology and largest consumer market.
Overall, in this post, you had a look at all the tallest toilets available in the American market today. Collectively these are the tallest toilets for sale today. Unlike a few years ago, fortunately today we have several 19, 20 and 21 inch high toilets for sale. Now we only have to decide which is the best tall toilet for your needs and requirements.
24 Inch Toilets
I know some very tall people with a height like 6 foot 8 inches etc would like to have an ultra tall toilet like 24 inches high seat toilets. Even while I was researching for this post, I came across search queries and comments from people asking for 24 inch toilets with either a 24 inch bowl height or 24 inch seat height.
Unfortunately there aren’t any 24 inch toilets for sale yet! But who knows if there’s enough demand some toilet maker may produce one soon. (Comment if you’d like to have a 24 inch high toilet.)
Until very recently, I heard many tall and elderly people complaint about the newer ADA recommended 17 to 19 inch high, comfort height toilets not being tall enough for them. They used to ask for toilets with 20 high bowls. At that time there weren’t any 20 or even a proper 19 inch toilet I could recommend to them. Back then the only options were to check with local medical supply stores to see whether they had any custom built high seat handicapped toilets or to install a toilet raiser under a normal toilet or use a raised toilet seat.
