Mechitza Separating the Sink from the toilet



We wish to build a wall in our bathroom, between the toilet and sink.

What is the minimum height that wall can be, in order that the sink area should not be tomei? I heard 10 tefachim is enough, however is that sufficient if one can still see the toilet?



Yes, ten Tefachim is high enough.



צריכים רק שיהא מקצה מקומו לעצמו, ואינו כמו מחיצות בין אנשים לנשים.
