|In response to Re: Can't meet the supply line pressure challenge!|
Look up above in the toilets retail area for a gravity fed toilet that resembles an old time toilet that had a tank mounted on the wall, above the user's head. Ask Terry for a good price for the tank and flush valve and toilet, it'll connect to your existing drain pipe.
: One potential problem however. The water supply system is gravity fed from tanks on the roof and we have no electricity for a pressure system (a gasoline-powered pump pushes the water up a 50 foot cliff to the roof-top tanks).
: The Toto units call for a minimum of 8psi on the supply side. I have two old 40 gal hotwater tanks on the roof about 10-12 feet above where the toilet will be so, based on my research, can only provide 4-5 psi.
: Is there a different style of water fill valve (aka ball cock) that would work in the Toto that isn't supply-line pressure sensitive?
: If the Toto's won't work, is there another brand of toilet with excellent performance that doesn't require 8psi?
: Thanks in advance.
