"Sloan" valve for toilet

Hi, I'm replacing an old toilet at my church. it uses the flush valve and it's side piped into the commode. They have the new commode and flush valve (top mount). Question is, can I run 1/2 inch copper to the flush valve and put a reuducer fitting on the valve supply line to take it from 1/2 inch up to whatever it needs or do I have to replace all the supply line? Reason is, I have a lot of 1/2 inch copper pipe.
Just wondering if that would work.
Thanks,
Joe

Sloan Flush valve for a toilet should be fed with 1", 3/4" for most urinals. I would not go with 1/2".

Where water flow is not adequate for a Sloan type valve they make a spring operated valve that looks like a Sloan valve but works as a simple on off valve.
