GENERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THE GEBERIT AQUACLEAN SHOWER TOILET
WHAT IS GEBERIT AQUACLEAN?
Geberit AquaClean is the shower toilet line from Geberit. The shower toilet models clean your bottom with warm water from a spray nozzle.
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF GEBERIT AQUACLEAN SHOWER TOILETS?
The gentle water jet provides more thorough cleaning and is kinder to the skin than wiping with paper. It leaves you feeling fresh and clean all over. A Geberit AquaClean shower toilet provides unparalleled comfort and ensures excellent personal hygiene.
HOW DO THEY DIFFER FROM A CONVENTIONAL WC?
Geberit AquaClean is no different from conventional toilets in terms of normal use. You use it in exactly the same way. The difference lies in what happens afterwards. Instead of wiping with toilet paper as you would when using a conventional WC, the Geberit AquaClean shower toilet cleans you gently and thoroughly with water.
ARE THE GEBERIT AQUACLEAN SHOWER TOILETS EASY TO USE?
Yes. They can be operated quickly and easily at the touch of a button – some models even allow operation via remote control or the Geberit AquaClean app.
HOW DOES THE GEBERIT AQUACLEAN SHOWER TOILET WORK?
While you are sitting on the shower toilet, you press a button to trigger a water spray at body temperature which cleans you with a comfortable level of pressure that you can select yourself. Some models will also extract and neutralise unpleasant odours. Depending on the features of the model in question, the Geberit AquaClean shower toilet will then dry you with warm air.
DO I STILL NEED TOILET PAPER?
This depends on which model you have, and how you decide to use it. You can choose to use the dryer functionality (depending on the model), which will dry you gently with warm air, or you can dry yourself with toilet paper.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AQUACLEAN AND BALENA?
Geberit’s shower toilets went by the name of Balena until the end of 2008. The product line was overhauled at the start of 2009 and new models were developed. The name Geberit AquaClean therefore represents a new generation of products.
WHAT KIND OF MODELS ARE AVAILABLE?
In the segment of WCs with spray functionality, Geberit offers complete integrated solutions (entire ceramic units) as well as enhancement solutions for retrofitting on existing WCs.
