    This is not a "problem", but a known function of Revit. Plumbing Fixtures inherit the system Graphic Override color that it's connected to. You have a couple of options:

    1. You can remove Graphic Overrides altogether (I did this many years ago) and color your systems another way: for instance using Filters and controlling the color of pipes and fittings only.

    2. If you prefer Graphic Overrides, you can create a Filter for Plumbing Fixtures and apply the color Black to the filter's line color. Filters do override Graphic Overrides.

    System overides only work when there is one system type connected. So you could add another.

    I assume your toilet will need a water connector as well? Add one in the family. Then select the toilet, click create piping system and select water (Or connect a water pipe if you are modelling that too). The colour overide will dissapear because the toilet has more than one system.

    Good note, Joseph. One thing I will note though, is while this is a solution for multi-connection fixtures/equipment/etc, this will obviously not work with single-connection fixtures/equipment/etc.

    Yes exactly. you are right, But in some fixtures such as flash tank we need only a water connector. I used this idea for toilet. Thank you alot
