Geberit AquaClean Mera Care Toilet imageRobert Moore, from Rainham in Kent, who has irritable bowel syndrome, was already familiar with the benefits of self-cleaning toilets after using one for more than seven years. However, his personal hygiene has been given a further boost with the installation of a new Geberit wash dry toilet, offering enhanced comfort levels and a better clean.

Due to irritable bowel syndrome, keeping clean with traditional toilet paper is difficult for Robert. Over a decade ago, he was introduced to the concept of wash dry toilets by his occupational therapist when a Geberit AquaClean 8000 Plus Care shower toilet was installed as part of a level access shower adaptation.

However, after years of use, the toilet came to its end of life and was in need of replacement. Thanks to a Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) and with the support of an occupational therapist from Medway Council, Robert was able to purchase a new Geberit AquaClean Mera Care Toilet. This has helped him enhance his comfort levels and lessen any concerns that he was not adequately clean.

Geberit’s AquaClean Mera Care shower toilet is a great solution for those with irritable bowel syndrome, who may find cleaning themselves with toilet paper uncomfortable. The toilet’s oscillating warm water spray arm ensures a thorough and effortless clean, which is enhanced with a warm air dryer, offering a hygienic and comfortable alternative to toilet paper.

Robert said: “It’s much more comfortable than the previous model. It’s easier to use too – that might sound strange but the washing and drying is excellent. The standard has increased enormously in recent years.”

In addition to the oscillating warm water spray arm and warm air dryer, Geberit AquaClean Mera Care also includes an automatic flush function via user detection, remote control, programmable user profiles for multiple users, and a continuous flow heater for constant warm water.

Robert added: “The new seat is very comfortable and I’ve noticed that it makes it very easy for me to open my bowels. I especially like the extractor fan too – it eliminates unpleasant smells in the bathroom entirely, within minutes of use. I frequently watch training videos on YouTube and find them an invaluable resource – even more so than the paper guide that was provided.”

He continued: “I find the longer, gentler wash on the Geberit Mera Care more comfortable, gentler and effective. After using the AquaClean Mera Care for just a week, I no longer felt the need to check as I know I’m spotlessly clean every time.”

Simon Thomas, Sales Director AquaClean Care – AquaClean Care, concluded: “Robert’s feedback goes some way to demonstrate the continued development of these products. Thanks to the AquaClean Mera Care, he can now rest easy safe in the knowledge that he is spotlessly clean after going to the toilet, which also improves his sense of wellbeing.”
