No sitting by itself on top of the tank?

Actually we have one of those floor stands that you drop the rolls down on to, so it is sideways. Mainly for accessibility for kids, although thanks to the tile layer (40 or so years ago, long before we bought the house) it would take a contortionist to reach around and over to where the TP holder is located.

If it's not over, it better bloody well at least be sitting on top of the tank.
Because there's only one thing worse than an under and that's having to resort to a sock.

Over - call it force of habit from my time in the military.

My daughters friends mom INSISTS on it being UNDER, she has a houseful of kids and a little yank rolls a long way if its over the top.

I found that to be an interesting reason behind it.

Each roll is supposed to be loaded the opposite of the roll before it to keep even wear on the holder. So one roll is inside, the next is outside. If you read the instructions that come with the holder, it tells you that the warranty is void if you don't reverse the rolls. All plumbers know this. In every package of TP, if you look inside of the TP tubes half of them are marked "I" & the other half are marked "O" to help you keep track.














Uhh... yeah. Over so you don't touch the wall while grabbing the TP.
