    What is the height of the toilet seat off the finish floor level in a public facility?

    Is there a requirement for the toilet to be elongated or can it be round?

    Are we required to provide restrooms to the general public in our retail store in California?

    • Dwight Ashdown says:

      It depends on the type of store, what you sell, whether it’s in a mall with public restrooms and the number of employees you will have. We suggest you call your local Building Department.
