    Cool top feed fill valve on a 1928 toilet

    Can aybody tell me if they know of a way to avoid replacing my Madcliff toilet form 1928 because the top feed fill valve is bad? Is anybody making new ones or can I find an old top feed fill valve somewhere? Somebody must have some experience with this stuff. I have three of these toilets and am leaking about 20 gallons per hour out of them.

    Have you looked at antiquehardware.com or ******.com?

    Default Do you still have your madcliff toilet

    Hello,

    I need a tank lid for a Madcliff toilet circa 1925 and thought I'd find out whether you still had yours. If so, please let me know if you have uninstalled it and have the tank lid. They're kind of hard to come by and I'd love to keep my toilet.

    By the way, My tank leaks too. If I can find a lid, I'll try to fix the leak.

    Thanks,

    Chris Bryce

    I don't know anything about this business except they have cool looking stuff on their website. They may have a lid for your toilet but they aren't cheap.

    Talking good luck

    repairing that top feed toilet is something

    sooo very rare around here that no one carries any parts


    If you can actually get the fill valve for that old piece of junk

    and make it work----adapting it to the inlet..
    without risking flooding out your home
    its your lucky day....

    I suggest you go out and buy yourself some
