comment How should I protect a gas line in a closet?
Can you? Yes. Should you? ... I certainly wouldn't. It's gonna be in a closet, which means it'll get used as storage, which means it should be as sturdy as any other wall. And it's got a gas pipe running in it.

comment How can I tell if a slab foundation can be built on?
Are you concerned about the slab, which is the large field of concrete that fills the floor of the garage area, or the footings, which would be underneath the slab around it's edges and beneath any key stress points?

You're talking about part of the toilet itself, not the underlying plumbing?

The screws will be "hot" whether you stick the wire in the little mounting hole or not.

Ok per the related question the approximation for maximum load to use is three times the sitting load on the swing. So take the max load you anticipate (ie: your 450 lbs) * 3 swings * the swinging factor of 3 = a peak swinging load in the vicinity of 4,050 lbs. (with all 3 really fat kids swinging in synch)
