| My brother has his own business and is moving to a new 'unit'. We have been
| doing some work there today and I came across something I would like
| clarification on. The unit is a fairly new build (<5 years old) and has a
| disabled toilet in it, this is the only toilet in the building, and
| presumably is a disabled one to comply with recent building regs etc. I was
| up the roof of the 'toilet block' and noticed a big header tank, approx 30"
| x 20". The only feed from this tank was to the toilet. The only other
| thing in the building that uses water is the sink in the toilet. The sink
| is fed from the rising main (obviously) but WHY is the toilet fed from the
| header tank. I can only assume it is incase there is a water cut off so the
| toilet can still be flushed a number of times, as when my brother flushed
| the toilet the water level in the tank only dropped about 3/4", before
| refilling. Are my assumptions correct or is there some other reason. I
| have ony ever seen toilets to be fed from the rising main before? It is not
| causing any problems, I am just curious.
Commercial units get used for a wide variety of purposes. When a
tenant moves out, anything which he/she may have installed gets ripped
out. Maybe a previous tenant used a lot of water, and needed the
tank. and it was only left in because it fed the toilet, which as you
say makes some sense.
