Low Tank Toilets


Thomas Crapper & Co. China Low Cistern Complete Toilet
Crapper and Co. has come out with a wonderful tank, flushing with slightly over 1 gallon.  The Crew here at Bathroom Machineries mated this tank with our Lydia bowl to make a Americanized version of the Thomas Crapper toilet.  No more problems with European rough -in distances!  Supplied with Cast Iron brackets, flush and fill tubes in your choice of Polished Brass or Nickel, the Lydia toilet bowl and a quartersawn Oak seat w/ matching hinge.

The Improved “Lydia” Pacific-style reproduction toilet set.
An exacting reproduction of the original Pacific-style water closet, accurate in every detail, right down to the rolled rim  tank, keyhole base, and exclusive Lydia bowl. Fits on 11” -14” rough-in on 3 or 4” pipe to replace new or antique toilets. Completely modern reverse-trap bowl design flushes with 1.28 gallons.  Please note, this low gallonage requirement forced us to use a newer method of casting that necessitated vent holes on the sides of the “Adam's Apple” hump.  These holes have been filled with white Polypropylene plugs.  See photo below showing plug.  Tank includes porcelain flush lever, solid brass flush valve, and 400A Fill valve.  Ready to install with bowl wax, bolt caps, flush elbow and all required hardware.
(stop valve, seat and supply sold separately.)

12/05/16 Lydia Update!
Well folks, it looks like time’s up for our Lydia toilet.  We have been unable to find a manufacturer willing to do limited production runs for us.  We do have a few “B” grade sets left, but we are sold out of the “A” porcelain, and we will not be getting any more.

“Blem” Lydia 1.28 Gallon toilet Sets
Here at Bathroom Machineries, we are a bunch of detail oriented perfectionists who insist that all the porcelain that ships out is as close to perfect as possible.   Inevitably, this leads to a stock of porcelain that's less than perfect.  There's nothing wrong with any of these toilets, as long as you don't mind a blemish.  Click here for a montage showing various blems.  There will be between one and three blems on both tank and bowl.  Dimensions are the same as the above Lydia Pacific style toilet.

Lydia “Blem” Tank Only
So, you have a great old 1920’s vintage toilet but the tank is cracked?  Why replace the whole toilet when you can buy just the tank!  Our tanks measure 22” wide by 16” tall and are 8 1/2” deep, maximum dimensions.  They are hand-finished, so they will have some irregularity in the porcelain.  Note, the white is brighter than the 1920’s vintage white so plan on a slight difference in color.
