I would like to replace the toilet in the master bathroom with one of the 16" high toilets..but I have a question / problem first.. The existing toilet is a "Cisa" brand ceramic toilet. The toilet base although sitting on the wood subfloor, it is surrounded by wall to wall carpeting.. My question is this?? I have been unable to find "Cisa" brand toilets anywhere and the reason I am looking for one is I want a new toilet with the same footprint as the one to be removed without having to recarpet the entire bathroom afterwords,, I have been to the Big Box stores and I see nothing available that has a similar footprint in size / shape.. Before I purchase a toilet with a larger footprint so I can cut out / enlarge the existing carpet outline to match it.. I am fishing for other options / ideas..

Personally I would remove the carpeting from around the toilet. If you have any leaks the carpet may hide the problem and leaks around the toilets usually result if floor damage.

Whatever you do, be sure to install a new wax ring.
