    Re: flush valve in residence

    AWK

    Do you have room somewhere near the toilet for say a 10 gallon (or larger) bladder/diaphram type tank which could stand on the floor near the new toilet?

    Please see this .PDF file and what I have in mind is a V45 tank somewhere on the basement floor near the toilet. Feed it from the current cold water pipe near the toilet and then run 1" copper sweat pipe and fittings from the tank outlet over to the flush valve. That should give you a good blast of water. Please install a check valve near the inlet of the new tank which may end up being a T as the tank may have only one connection point.

    I recommend discussing this with a licensed plumber in your area before you buy equipment and start working.

      Well done
      Bisquit,

      As you have seen I have deleted the post,I would not "attack" anyone withwhom I respect.

      Glad you caught it

      The deletion was a direct action after seeking counsel from another wiser forum member

          I have never seen such. I am 37 years old, but remember I am in Mississippi (Redneck capitol of the world). By the way, I do consider myself to be a redneck as well.

          I have seen pictures of the system you describe but have never examined one in person. But what the hell, if it works, go with it.

          I have seen some strange/different ways of doing things when I worked in Europe for a couple of years( Mostly Portugal and Spain). Damn I miss Portugal, small country, but loved the laid back attitude of everyone; once you get out of Lisbon.

          Regards,

          Actually those oak tanks copper inserted copper box worked great and gravity never failed

          Barcelona Spain ,Crete Greece, Malta, Palma de Majorca, Italy and yes Spain is gorgeous especially by the old winery areas.


          Boston and NYC talks old when your looking buildings from 1800's Then you go to these areas of the world and see churches from the 1,400's

          I wonder why with all the high tech we cant build structures that last and last
