Toilet hardware identification


Hey there,
I am new to the board and am at my wits end. I have a very unique toilet and I am hoping that someone here has something similar or can point me in the right direction.

I have a working solution now, but would love to have the actual hardware for my toilet. It is a Bassco side flushing toilet. I have attached a picture of the hardware. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try a REAL plumbing supply shop. They do exist, harder to find but they are out there. Some are contractor only, but you can find a contractor to buy for you at a price , but we do what we gotta do to get what we want.

Or shop e-bay, You might find it there.

That's just a ballcock with a water saver diverter on it. Once the water hits a certain level in the tank, the float on the diverter diverts the water from the filler tube (bowl refill) to the tank so you don't needlessly overfill the bowl on refill.

You can easily replace that with something a bit more universal if you wish. Just a plain ordinary ballcock (like American Standard for example) with a throttler on the fill hose.



Take note at the throttling dial on the filler tube. Just throttle back the fill supply so that the bowl completes its fill at the same time the tank does. The same task is accomplished with fewer parts (and easier to come by parts)

You'll need to find that specific valve that valve has a flush aid diverter, when you flush the toilet the water kicks in to the bowl to aid in the flush the as the water rises in the tank the water is then diverted back to finish filling the tank need to find similar or the same any other standard valve may cause problems with flushes resulting in clogs.

Apparently Basco toilets are no longer manufactured. So unless you can adapt parts from a different manufacture you will need to replace your toilet.

Thanks for all the suggestions... I don't think I have room for a ballcock solution. I might have to leave my rigged solution for now. I might look into the throttler solution.
