    I would try to keep it 1" all the way from the main into the flushometer. 3/4" can maybe work if the pressure is high enough, but I personally wouldn't do that if I can get 1" to it without bombing the whole place.

    If you can't or won't run the correct pipe size, then you should just go with a pressure assist or gravity toilet.

    The least you can have is 1" to that valve.
    Normally on flushometers, you main trunk lines are 1.5" and then 1" to the flushometer.
    There is no tank at the toilet, so that 1.6 gallons has to come out of the wall in a hurry. Imagine someone in the shower and that thing unloads.
    Not a nice thing to do to someone else.

    It will NEVER work properly if all you have is a 1/2" PEX feed. IT should be AT LEAST 1" PEX, and depending on far you have to run the line, maybe even 1 1/4"

    I have a question. Will a flushometer work on a pressure assisted bowl? Since they are both powered by 'pressure' i wonder if the flushometer might be higher or equal to that of a pressure assist tank? Will it work possibly better on flushometer?

    How would you even connect a flushometer to a tank type toilet?
