    Does anyone know where I can find a 5 gallon flush toilet? I know they are very outdated but I was hoping to find one, I would even be up for shipping it long distance.

    Thanks in advance,

    Can't imagine why you want one, but since they are now illegal for new installs, you're have to find one on the used market.

    Just ask any local plumber.
    We are throwing away about 20 five gallon toilets a week.

    Talk about living in the past.
    The five gallon toilets will plug more often then the new ones.

    Just imagine using five gallons to flush away 10 ounces of urine.

    Not all of them flushed 5 gallons, My 59 "Standard" uses just 4 gallons of water at it's factory intended water level.

    Do you know how old a 5 gallon flush toilet would have to be. 3.5 gpf was the standard after them and before the current 1.6 gpf, so you are looking for a toilet that is at least 20 years old and probably more than that.
