Toilet Cistern

Postby benbo » Fri Sep 11, 2009 9:48 am

I am thinking of fitting a vanity unit and it will be unavoidably too close to the flush handle of the toilet cistern.

The flush handle is situated centrally on the side of the cistern.

Is it possible to move the flush handle to the opposite side with the internal parts hopefully being reversible or would I have to buy a new cistern or internal parts?

What prompted this question is that there is another water inlet screwed in, at the other end of the cistern..albeit blanked off.

Thanks :!:

Simply Build It

It will be alot easier to buy a slimline cistern rather than trying to reverse the current one you have.
