    American Standard Norwall wall-hung toilet, 1959 in green
    This thing flushes with at least five gallons, may seven. The homeowner said that one the toilet was flushed there was almost no water anywhere in the house left over. It must have been interesting to be in the shower if someone flushed the toilet in the other room.

    It did have a good run though, it's from 1959.

    Here was my replacement that I installed.

    Terry,

    Regarding VOLUME drop and cold water pressure decreased and LOW flow shower heads, this is what happened

    LOW flow shower also caused this to happen as only hot water came out of the shower head

    PLUS the building owner thought it was not cost-effective to install a pressure /temperature shower valves

    I am working on 9 cases now and as soon as the courts reopen I will be sitting in Supreme courts in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx
    The ones where two children died most likely will be settled out of court for several hundred million dollars

    The one above was an RN taking care of an elderly lady and decided to take a shower before taking the subway home as it was in August and a hot day

    Seems morons do not take into consideration that the city water supply can have temperature fluctuations as much as 20 degrees winter /summer and do not make the adjustments on the tempering devices

    This is how an old plumber can still make over $200,000 a year by being GUN FOR HIRE expert just by knowing the various codes

    Not too shabby for a guy who quit school at 15

    Think about it when your body says enough of carrying CI tubs up a flight of stairs 5 stories up it pays to have a back up plan

    In this case, I went to court 5 DAYS waiting to testify and was finally called ($3,800 a day) and the "victim " shows up on the last day of trial spaced out on crack I was told and the judge threw the case out and had him jailed

    This is why GET MONEY UP IN FRONT when dealing with lawyers
