GERBER DEBUTS TWO NEW MAXWELL 1.28 GPF HIGH EFFICIENCY TOILETS WOODRIDGE, Ill. (August 2012) - Bolstering its roster of reliable and innovative products, leading plumbing manufacturer Gerber adds two new high efficiency toilets (HETs) to its Maxwell product line: the Maxwell 1.28 Wall Hung & Floor Mount, Elongated Back Outlets. Both products comply with WaterSense®, a program established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to save water. “These product line additions solidify Gerber’s position as an industry leader by delivering high performance and water saving toilets for unique and challenging applications,” commented Kevin McJoynt, vice president of marketing for Gerber. Attached to the wall, the Maxwell 1.28 Wall Hung HET is elevated off of the floor making cleaning under the bowl hassle-free. Ideal for Maxwell 1.28 Wall Hung multi-family or commercial applications, this HET combines performance and product features including a dual-fed siphon jet, pilot fill valve and an elongated bowl. The Maxwell HET also easily retrofits in existing wall mount tank type applications allowing for adaptive reuse in older buildings. The floor mount, rear outlet Maxwell 1.28 has a unique compact elongated design. It provides the extra comfort of an elongated bowl for small bathrooms where previously, only round front toilets would fit.

ADA compliant, both Maxwell HETs are low-consumption toilets using only 1.28 gallons per flush. The Maxwell line’s latest HETs feature a three inch flush valve and are available in white with a color matched tank lever.
