  • Thomas Crapper Solid Bronze '814' Cistern
    You can have the High or Low Level Cistern
  • In style and detail these cisterns are exactly the same as our Victorian originals. Originally made from cast iron, which is strong but liable to rusting, these cisterns are made from Solid Bronze
  • The outstanding casting and corrosion resistant properties of bronze make possible the reproduction and longevity of the finest details in the harshest environments, hence its use as a favoured material for sculptures. Regardless of cost, we consider bronze to be the ultimate product from which to cast our 814 cisterns
  • Bronze is the oldest alloy obtained by man (the Bronze Age). The first bronze articles were obtained in the third millennium B.C. by means of reduction smelting of copper and tin ores with charcoal. When bronze oxidizes it acquires a permanent coloration (a natural patina) ranging from green to dark brown and black
  • Returning to the cistern details, the tail thread of the syphon is solid brass and the pipe nuts are supplied in Brass, Nickel or Chromium to match the flush-pipe. We do not offer the usual cheap metal `cup' to cover the (even cheaper) plastic nuts
  • The internal fittings are efficient modern versions of the originals and are the finest available. The cistern conforms to current British Water Regulations in that it delivers just over one gallon
  • The syphon can be altered to deliver nearly two gallons where needed, that is, when used with an older W.C. that requires more water. We can supply this cistern with the water inlet and the handle on the left: please advise us at time of ordering if this is required
  • A proper syphon is supplied - Never a flushing valve
  • Fittings are available in a choice of polished brass, nickel plate or chromium plate finish
