View Full Version : Size of water line to Drake toilet/

03-14-2008, 12:24 AM
Will I be able to use a 3/8" braided supply line for this new
Drake I just received ? It's the base elongated model CST744S.

Thanks for any info.

It makes no difference what kind, or size, supply line you use. That water only refills the tank. The water IN the tank does the flushing, not the water coming through the supply line.

Just make sure you don't use a Watts FloodSafe supply.
The Watts FloodSafe will shut its self off before the tank fills.

And, since you only use 1.6 gallons or less to refill the tank, a 3/8" line will still fill the tank quickly.

I have seen homes flooded because a Watts Floodsafe broke!:mad:
Bad News!

Thanks all. I guess you can tell I'm pretty new to this toilet
business. I ended up getting one of these. I hope it'll do.
The shutoff is a floor mount. I screwed up when I ordered
the Drake toilet. I thought I had ordered the SL version
which is a 16.5 height bowl. I ended up with the S version
which is 14 5/8". To send it back is too cost restrictive for
me right now. Is this 20" going to be too long ? I bought
it think I was getting the 16.5 version bowl at the time..


I promise I'll learn this stuff if you folks don't mind helping.
I grateful for the info...:)

They are never "too long" but they can be "too short". Just loop it before it connects to the tank.

If you really want the ADA model, you could probably sell the one you have for close to what you paid for it. ADA height is great for any one getting to an age where the knees don't life as well as before and for anyone of medium height like 5'8" and up. Kids and petite folks would probably prefer the standard size.

Thanks for the suggestion. Will consider it.
