In response to Re: Pressure-Assist Conversion for Gravity Toilets?
I wonder how this might work. People are often cautioned on plumbing boards not to try to adapt a larger tank to a 1.6 gallon toilet, because the passageways in the toilet are designed to accommodate only the flow and pressure from the 1.6 gallon tank. Now consider the whoosh of a Flushmate through a toilet not designed for that velocity...better keep the lid down.

: The Oct/Nov 1997 issue of Fine Homebuilding says that "For now, only specially designed toilets can accept pressure-assist units." It also mentions that Bruce Martin (Flushmate and PF/2 Energizer)"is working on an adapter unit to convert ordinary gravity toilets to pressure-assist". What's the status on this? Are there conversion/adapter kits available yet?
