Pros
Excellent Flusher

Comment:
I had three installed at the same time by two different plumbers, one plumber was more knowledgable than the other. Hence one Gerber toilet had to be replaced due to clogging. Once changed all three have never clogged. I have had them for almost two years with three kids. I even added a half gallon plastic bottle to the tank to reduce water usage and still works exceptionally. This has reduced my water usage from 1.6 to 1.1 gallons a flush. If installed correctly this is the best money can buy.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought the Gerber Avalanche 21-818 based on Consumer reports ratings and recommendations. I also looked at the user reviews. The performance of my 21-818 is not good and it has clogged 5 times in 5 weeks. Also, when you have to use the plunger, you have to use the plunger many times before it unclogs. I am very disappointed in the Consumer Reports ratings and recommendation of this toilet. It has not performed like I was lead to believe.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
