Geberit’s AquaClean shower toilet has been featured on an episode of BBC’s DIY SOS, allowing five-year old Isaac Smith, who has a severe form of cerebral palsy, to enjoy greater independence when using the bathroom.
The episode, which aired in September, saw presenter Nick Knowles, interior designer Julia Kendall and the DIY SOS team transform the Smith family home in Lasco, Derbyshire.
Part of the project was the creation of a ground floor wet room, fitted with a Geberit AquaClean 8000plus Care shower toilet. The shower toilet combines a warm water wash – with gentle, oscillating or pulsating wash options – and a warm air-dryer for greater independence.
