  • Old one piece toilet help

    I don't see any manufacturing marks on this toilet to indicate who made them. Anyone have any idea?

    I may need to replace up to three of this type balcock assemblies. The supply house guy here looked at the pic and gave me a blank stare. (Eyes slightly glazed). Has anyone seen these before?

    Thanks for looking.

      Will a fluid master fit? do they make a low profile fluid master?

        Had to crank up the way-back machine to find this one.
        These guys have all that old stuff.
        Be prepared to spend more for the parts than a new W.C. would cost.

          You are the MAN! Thank you very much for your help. I would never have guess these are case toilets. The new owners of this very old mansion want to keep the toilets if at all possible. So if they are willing to pay the $238 plus tax the ballcocks cost me then it's a go.

            Be advised that the flushvalves are of limited availability. I would check availability and advise my customer to replace them if possible.

                Geno will a toilet seat bidet fit on these toilets? If not you only have 1 option and that is to remove them.

                  That is so cool. It is kinda sad that most of that old stuff just ends up in a landfill, though I suppose you may need to be in the trade to really appreciate it. Should be a museum somewhere for this old stuff. It is like art.

                    My thoughts exactly....I recognized the innards to be case-like (thanks to that post you made a while back looking for local suppliers that stocked case fill valves rick). But the actual toilet itself didn't look familiar at all.

                      It's kinda funny to think that all that brass and all those moving parts have been replaced by a plastic fill valve with only a few moving parts and that costs $5. Thanks China!

                        found it! down at the bottom of that page. My wife didn't believe me when I said it was a really old toilet. the only old toilets she's seen have the head high gravity tank.
                        No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

                          That thing is a real gem. I'll bet it weighs 150 lbs.

                          Surprised the ceramic tank lever hasn't cracked or broken off in 100 years of service. Looks a little top heavy to me. Finding a chrome bumber to fit on the tank lid shouldn't be hard.
