I have a older toilet(1970’s) with Sloan valve flush system- can I replace the Sloan valve with a tank and keep the bowl?

  • Does the bowl have two holes for bolts for securing a tank directly to the bowl? As an alternative, there are tanks which mount high up on the wall and connect to the bowl with a pipe. This has the advantage of having a higher head pressure and so a stronger flush. Is the Sloan valve not working properly? – Jim Stewart Oct 17 '17 at 10:09
  • The bowl is designed to work with a certain volume and speed of flush. A low volume tank would probably not properly flush a bowl designed for a Sloan valve. New toilets probably do not cost much more than a replacement tank. – Jim Stewart Oct 17 '17 at 11:14
  • The bowl is a Crane and I don't see any Holes. there is nothing wrong with the Valve- [just the building management. Insisting it be replaced with tank ( we need To replace all the water risers- 1950 High rise. ]. I am looking for all options – Ldoyle Oct 17 '17 at 12:36
