Toilet Install in a space with a tight water line

We had previously used Continental Brothers to finish our basement back in Sept'2017 - see my previous review titled "950 Sq Ft Finished Basement". It is currently Mar'19, but back on Jan. 11, 2019 and I had Victor (the owner) return to install a toilet in the upstairs Master Bathroom. He brought Benny to assist him as well. We recognized Benny from when they were here before doing the basement and that was nice to see a familiar and trusted face as well.

Victor and Benny had a tough task as the toilet's water line was installed very tight to both the wall and more importantly (in a negative manner) the mid-line of the toilet. [see the picture with measuring tape] It should be made clear that the toilet's water line was done by the builder's plumber [the home is 6-years old] & not Contintential Brothers. This made finding a new toilet and getting it installed difficult. We even got quotes from various plumbing specific only type Companies. Most recommended not changing the toilet as it wasn't worth the extra cost to re-do the plumbing in the master bathroom, which would include breaking through tiles in the bathroom and even potentially the drywall ceiling on the main floor below.

However, Victor was willing to take a look including moving the heavy 1-piece toilet from the front foyer upstairs and tried installing it. It was a tight fit and Victor and Benny were able to find an alternative solution that did not require breaking tile or drywall or re-running plumbing.

This was a huge relief and huge savings to the $$$ pocketbook. So a positive thing on both fronts. Victor even helped me by moving the old toilet out to the street's curb.

The toilet was installed successfully [see 2nd picture attached]. It has been about 3-months and we are still happy and no plumbing/toilet issues.

Thanks again Continental Brothers, especially Victor & Benny.
