Geberit European Toilet Systems Save Water and Space


Geberit European Toilet Systems Save Water and Space

May 5, 2015

Considering a bathroom overhaul? May is National Home Remodeling Month and Swiss manufacturer Geberit has plenty of ideas.

More than 50 years ago, Geberit proposed a streamlined solution to bulky toilets: Put the plumbing behind the wall and gain extra room.

Today, Geberit offers two solutions to homeowners worldwide: an in-wall plumbing system paired with a wall-mounted toilet, and the Monolith system, which corrals bulky plumbing into a sleek glass tank. Both products save space–up to nine inches–and water: Geberit systems with dual-flush plates can help a family of four cut water use by thousands of gallons every year.

Here are some modern and spa-inspired baths that demonstrate the space-saving powers of Geberit, and visit our shared Pinterest board for more inspiration.

Geberit In-Wall Toilet System

Above: Geberit’s in-wall system hides all the plumbing inside the wall, so only the toilet is visible. It’s a streamlined–and easy to keep clean–setup.

Above: Geberit’s in-wall system can be paired with wall-hung bowls from most leading manufacturers, meaning it can be configured in myriad combinations at a wide range of prices.

Above: Geberit flush plates come in an array of designs and finishes. The Sigma60 Flush Plate, shown here, is made of die-cast zinc and mounts evenly with the surface of the wall.

Geberit Monolith

Above: The Geberit Monolith comes in two versions: an in-wall system compatible with a wall-hung toilet (shown here), and a floor-mounted version compatible with existing floor-mounted toilet plumbing.
