I don’t like Geberit toilet. My all time favorite flushing toilet is American standard https://bestflushingtoilet.org/american-.... Really, I like this brand flushing technology.

That’s a great effort to share information about the Geberit toilet, but I think most people do not use these toilets. Here https://lueliving.com/ is a list of some best toilest. I’m sure that will be helpful.

In Europe, Geberit is very popular, and it is one of the few brands that provides parts/upgrades for older models (even going back to 1964, when they started).
