Default H*ow to replace this with an automatic flusher

Does anyone know what I could do to replace

With an automatic flusher?

(notice... no standard offset between supply pipe and connection to urinal.)

Thanks

you need to buy a http://www.supplyhouse.com/Sloan-325...p-Spud-Urinals

and repipe the water line to be 4 3/4'' off center to center [left] x 11 1/2 '' top of the urinal to center

read the rough in measurements that come with the valve


and then, send me that old valve,

Well now... That's a bargain at $338!

I think I will try out the recommended Cheap-o ones from China first... One was $23, two others were around $60. I'll probably get what I pay for... but I will learn something in the process.

What is the name in America for an adapter that converts from "G 1/2" to North America 1/2".. And, If I go down to Orchard Supply Hardware, Home Depot or such, what would they call it?

And, Why would anyone want the OLD one?. it is really HARD to push.

no I do not live in Arkansas, I live in the Great state Of Mississippi

I do not see the humor that you see in that valve, Evidently, you are not familiar a spring return valve

Good thing it's not a public urinal.

Would NOT want someone mistaking that for a drinking fountain.
