  1. Your note above says gerber products “are available for plumbing specialists only.” Does this mean that I, as a homeowner teacher, cannot buy a gerber toilet and install it myself? Do I have to go through a third party? I am especially interested in the top-rated gerber avalanche (21-817) that gets great reviews from this month’s Consumer Reports. But it sounds like I can’t just buy one — I have to go through a plumber who would want to install it too. I live in Annapolis, Md. 21401.
