Toilet flange was at 12", so I used a 10" rough in toilet and ran a line down the wall behind the tank.

Why not install a modern flush valve toilet?

Galvanized pipe?

that wont last long as it rusts from the threads and clogs the fill valve...
If I had to do that I would use brass and give it a coat of chrome rustoleum paint, makes it look like factory chrome...and no chance of rust...

Pretty sure it would have been cheaper to just use a new sloan valve. I feel like you committed a plumbing sin. I will absolve you if you send me the old sloan valve

The arm that goes into the stop and uses the H-553 o-ring is called the H-551A Adustable tailpiece. You can use an internal spud wrench to remove it from the body of the valve. That end is 1" NPT.


You could have tightened the existing sloan stop another 90 degrees and used a 1"x3/4" coupling. I don't know how accessible it would have been but at least you wouldn't have had to shut off the water elsewhere and it would provide a nice back up if the compression stop fails.


Also why use galv? How old are you that it won't be an issue before you retire? As has been said it will rust and flake and cause issues.


I always remove the squiggle piece from the inside of the shank of the fill valve. Then if it clogs it will be at the top of the fill valve and you won't need to disconnect the supply line to clear it, you just turn the top of the fill valve 90 degrees and take it apart.

Busting on Captain Bob for using galvanized? Judging by the sink stub outs and the old a$$ Sloan valve the whole system is galvanized. An extra foot and a half of new galvanized pipe isn’t going to hurt anything.

My whole neighborhood started out as galvanized plumbing in 1963 and at least 25% of the houses still have it.

I make lotsa $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ re piping old galvanized systems.......and now with all the cartridges in use in new faucets and shower bodies that catch every little piece of rust, compared to the old washer set up in older faucets, that would let most of it pass on by...

Good point on whole system being galvanized.

Yes, you're correct. In that case new galv is fine. No point in using expensive lipstick on the old pig. Even I use up the 3/8" galv nipples we have in the shop on old houses with old galv.



But he didn't say that and for many of us galv is a plague to be avoided. I don't even think our local supply house carries much galv. And it looks like he only used one galv fitting. Might as well have just used brass for the couple bucks more.
