Default Using a commercial toilet

I have an awkward toilet situation in my house whereby I will need to turn the toilet 45 degrees off perpendicular to the wall due to an obstruction in front of the bowl. My solution is to use a AmStd Madera elongated commercial toilet with a Flushometer valve on the top spud. Typically, commercial installations have a 1" supply connected to the flush valve; is it possible to connect a half-inch supply to a reduced connection on the flush valve and still obtain the pressure needed to flush the toilet? I have 80psi static on the supply but no way to measure flow pressure to see if it reaches the 25psi flow required minimum. It will be a new installation in an existing space with a rough in of 12" from the wall

Many thanks for your replies

I’d call your local code compliance and ask for the plumbing inspector perform an inspection. Whoever did the original work will have a target on their back. Next hire a reputable, licensed plumber and builder to properly fix your code issues.

Since you only have a 1/2" water supply maybe hang a conventional toilet tank up at the ceiling like the old school water closets then install drain pipe to the commercial toilet.
