After having carefully seen the advantages and disadvantages of the built-in cisterns, as well as the simple maintenance, I am sure that many of you will be left wanting to install one of them at home, replacing your traditional cistern and providing a modern aesthetic to your bathroom.
For those who, still convinced of their goodness, feel discouraged by the dirt and inconvenience of a work, today I bring you two novel alternatives, that although they are not exactly embedded, they will allow you to radically change the aesthetics of your bathroom without major modifications.
Monolith de Geberit
Geberit Monolith offers a simple and very aesthetic alternative when considering a renovation in the bathroom. Thanks to the mix of design and functionality and the use of materials such as aluminum and safety glass, this new concept of sight cistern It becomes an attractive variant of the classic ceramic cistern.
Perhaps many of you already know her, because Geberit Monolith is one of the most awarded Geberit solutions. In 2010 she was awarded the prestigious iF design award and in 2012 with the Interior Innovation award, apart from being a finalist in the 2011 edition of the Delta awards and the Designpreis Deutschland.
To its version for foot toilets the Swiss company now adds a new version of Geberit Monolith, which we see in the image, compatible with most of suspended toilets From the market.
But Geberit Monolith not only provides design and innovation to the reform of the bathroom, it also allows to gain space since it is only 10 cm. deep And what we were going to, can be connected to the existing evacuation and supply without modification, as easy as installing a traditional sight tank, not chopped, without tiling and without dirt. Its operation is simple, it differs in no way from any other tank in the market, and its maintenance is equally simple and accessible from the top.
In-tank Meridian de Roca
The toilet Meridian In-tank de Roca goes one step further, since, as you can see in the details of the video, it contains in itself a integrated tank that does not need any type of cistern, neither embedded nor conventional.
In-tank Meridian uses Soft Air technology, developed jointly with Fluidmaster, and, as we saw in the Geberit solution, it is available in both suspended and standing versions. It also incorporates a cushioned cover and drop seat and has a dual 4.5 / 3L discharge with electronic actuation buttons and a fill indicator for the inner tank.
As for prices, the two options that I propose are more or less similar, about six hundred euros, although Geberit would have to add the toilet, which in the case of Roca is already included.
What do you think, which of these alternatives to traditional cisterns do you like it better?
