With all your great choices, why do we recommend Gerber Avalanche toilets?
With over twenty-two years experience and installing every toilet rated by consumer reports, the Avalanche stands in a league of its own in my opinion. It is a great looking toilet, flushes wonderfully, has many advanced features which other manufacturers have never addressed, and is easily installed in almost all locations (the American Standard Champion is so large it cannot be used in most homes).
The Avalanche comes from the factory with heavy duty brass tank bolts and name brand fill valve, where their competition uses cheap metal or plastic bolts and a cheap knock-off fill valve. The Avalanche has an extra thick toilet tank which keeps the tank from sweating when installed on a cold water well system. No other toilet manufacturer has done this.
The toilet flushes so well because it has a full three inch diameter glazed trap way through the entire toilet. The replacement parts are readily available and not terribly expensive (under $20 and should not need replacement for years) at both plumbing suppliers and big box stores, unlike expensive Toto replacement parts, which can cost over $100, are cheap quality and poor design, are difficult for homeowners to locate repair parts and to install.
For years we had to tell our customers to to keep and repair their old toilets. We are so glad to have this wonderful product to recommend to provide years of trouble-free use. We supply and install a Gerber Avalanche comfort height toilet with a wood seat with new extra thick wax ring, heavy duty brass toilet bolts, for $600 installed, including labor and material and including removal of existing toilet, with two year warranty.
