Install the actuator frame and flush control push rods. With the cover frame installed, insert the flush control push rods into the access hole in the cam lever unit. Install one push rod for each flush controller. These rods are notched to allow sizing to match the wall depth. To change the length of these rods, simply break the rod at the appropriate notch for the size you need to match your wall depth. Some control rods are sized and colored differently for each flush actuator check with your install literature.
Once passed into the actuator gearbox, turn the control rods to lock in place. Test the flushing function by pushing on each control rod — it should initiate a flush cycle. With the actuator control rods assembled, locked and working properly, finish the actuator assembly by installing the actuator cover.

Geberit actuator cover plate installs on actuator frame. For the Geberit unit, the cover is installed by first pushing the base of the cover against the wall and sliding up to engage the two plastic tabs with the rounded metal springs at the base of the black actuator frame. Once both of the bottom cover tabs are engaged with the frame spring, push the cover up and over the top of the frame edge to lock in place.
Complete, installed wall-hung toilet with concealed, in-wall tank with two button actuator. So the Geberit in-wall toilet tank frame system is compatible with any toilet bowl manufacture it seems. Any thoughts or insight would be helpful. Beautiful bathroom by the way. I was a bit worried about the strength of a wall mounted unit as well, but they are rated for lbs!
Much of that depends on the framing you have in your wall.
Toilet Buying Guide | Bunnings Warehouse
As far as floor mounted toilets for the Geberit system, Geberit offers a tank specifically for floor mounted toilets Looks like there are a few domestic toilets available for this tank, but they might be hard to find. The Duravit is such a model and its reasonably priced you can see it here. Geberit also offers the Monolith series that uses their concealed tank mounted within a narrow housing that mounts to the wall vs. The Monolith system allows you to use Gerberits tank without opening the wall cavity and allows you to still use your existing floor waste pipe.
More info: Geberit Monolith Toilet system. Thanks for your response and insight. It actually gave me the option to purchase the Geberit tank you suggested. So I have just a couple of questions for you if you mind helping. Did you leave an access panel on the rear of the tank? Just thinking if it would be a good idea to have an access panel to see if water has been seeping out of the tank.
Your setup is by far the most thorough I have found on the web though.
Great job! I did leave access to the tank via a panel behind the tank within a closet. I used the stud frame around the tank unit as a frame to screw the access panel to. One of the images above in the article shows the rear of the unit where I created the access panel. I did not specifically test the unit prior to closing the wall, but I did leave the access behind the unit open to check for leaks after install. I then closed the access once I was satisfied there were no leaks. Thanks for the kind words and good luck with the project.
I would love to see a few images of the finished product! Gary, I forgot to upload the pictures of my finish project. Thanks to your site, you inspired me to do two bathrooms with the geberit tank system. Came out looking good! Thanks for sharing the images, it is great to see a finished floor mounted toilet with the wall carrier — saves a ton of space and offers the benefits we talked about before. Thank you very much for finding time and energy to document your projects.
When it comes to the wall mount toilet installation, apart form Geberit videos, your site is by far the most informative one.
The difference between each style
Do you see or feel any wall movement when you load the toilet? Thank you in advance and I wish you all the luck with your coming projects. I have not noticed any flex in the wall and I am totally confident that the unit and wall could support lbs or more. That said, I did double the studs bordering the unit and did use steel reinforcement plates to install the studs.
Good luck and let us know how it goes. Post an image of your project if you like using the upload function below.

Thank you very much for your prompt response and for the nice words or encouragement. Nice job on the toilet installation. I like the looks of the Toto Aquia — very sleek. Thanks for the tips. The toilet installation is complete. I ended up installing the Kohler K carrier and K toilet. It took me a week to complete the installation, which is somewhat temporary until I complete a remodel later this year.
I had to make significant plumbing modifications downstairs, upstairs, and in the attic to meet code for venting.
I still need to temporarily patch the hole in the floor and finish off a couple other minor details. I really like the look of your bathroom. Where did you get your sink and legs hardware that support the sink?
Thanks for the kind feedback. Unfortunately, I think this model is now discontinued. The legs and hardware where sold as an add-on with the sink and also from Duravit. Or, do I need to make something out of steel? Hmmm… good questions. Boy, if have access to your wall cavity, I would really encourage you to use one of the tried and true in-wall tank carrier units.
For a few hundred bucks you can get the Geberit frame I used above. The unit is built from heavy duty steel tubing and it would be hard to replicate the support provided by the unit. And, if you factor in the tank I strongly believe it is a no brainer to use a carrier. Almost any problem that you could have from not using the carrier would be a total mess and likely end up costing you much more in the long run.
