        We need to know where we can purchase a twin flush valve for an up flush toilet model U-P with automatic twin flush valve. This was purchased 6-3-85 from McPherson,Inc, in Tampa, FL, when we called the phone number it is no longer in service. Is there by any chance some place in MT that we can purchase this or eastern WA?

          McPherson went out of business
          shortly after the 1.6 gpf became
          a requirement. I’ve searched for
          two years trying to find parts for
          my twin flush valve with no success. I have a twin flush valve
          you can have. It has a slight leak
          in one of the internal diaphragms
          and allows additional water to
          leak into the bowl, about 1 gal.
          in 24 hrs. Way short of overflowing. That problem can be
          avoided by putting a shutoff valve
          on the water supply line, either
          a quarter turn 1/2″ ball valve or
          a full flow solenoid valve. I used
          a solenoid valve, 12vac with a
          timer relay set at 10 min. and put
          the switch right next to the twin
          flush valve actuator.
          I have since gone with a Myer’s
          Sewage Pumping package with an
          American Std. 1.6 gpf toilet and
          I am very satisfied.
