    I think the water pipe coming in is 1" diameter.

      yes in the older homes they were plumbed for flushometers valves.

      problem is the look of the commercial flushomter toilet is still a commercial look. most of my customers with this old of a home have converted like yours or have done a modern day remodel and lowered the piping.

      also verify that the center line of the waste is 10'' to the wall and not the normal 12'' for a tank toilet. if so then a 10'' tank toilet is required and is limited to certain models.

        Rick,

        Are you saying a commercial flushomter toilet should usually 10 inches off the wall or 12 inches off the wall?

        I need 2 toilets. I measured from the wall to the flanges bolts and it was 10" on one toilet and 12.75" on the other toilet.

        Any suggestions where I should purchase the toilets?

        Thanks

          Is this a wall hung toilet?

              The minimum distance most any floor mounted flushometer toilets can be 9" off the wall to center providing the wall had no molding at the floor. Rough in is normally 10" but can be more.



              If there was one before go for it, you should have the volume needed but it requires 35 psi.

                Don't know if there was one before but I'd like to remove the current toilet and put one in.
                What's the easiest way to measure the water pressure?

                  They make a gauge that screws onto your hose bib. Run the water for a couple of minutes then install the gauge and that's it.

                      The pipe coming out of the wall measures 1.5" but the different connectors taper it to 1/2" going into the toilet.
                      I'm looking at hose bib gauges and I'm wondering what size to get. Can I get a 1/2 or do I need to get a 1.5"?

                        It screws onto the outside faucet where your hose attaches.

                          Please look at this link.

                          If I attach this to the sink next to the toilet, will this tell me the water pressure for the toilet?

                          Thx.

                            It says its not a functioning page. Look at the one I posted, it is the best way to do it. It is already made to hook up with your hands without taking anything apart. I would not do it another way.

                              Thanks. I didn't realize that was a link to the gauge.

                              I fixed the link about. It looks like the one you posted but a little cheaper.

                              Do I screw that to the sink faucet which is next to the toilet and turn on the cold water?
