There are industry standards for toilet seats – all toilets have seat post holes on 5 1/2" centers – all elongated bowls are 18 1/2" from seat posts to front of rim, and all round bowls are 16 1/2". Any manufacturer’s seats will fit any toilet manufacturers bowls if they are standard round or standard elongated. If a manufacturer makes a bowl with different dimensions, then they must provide a special seat – this is known as a proprietary seat.
How do I know if my toilet seat is round front or elongated?
To determine if your toilet is round front or elongated, measure the distance between the center of the bolt holes(A) (which connect the seat to the bowl) out to the front rim of the toilet(B). If it measures approximately 16 1/2" your toilet is a round front. If it measures approximately 18 1/2", it is an elongated model. You'll need this information when replacing your toilet seat.
What cleaners do I use to clean my Toilet Seat?
When cleaning your toilet seat, wash it only with mild, soapy water; rinse the seat thoroughly with clear water; and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid detergents, disinfectants, or cleaning products in aerosol cans. NEVER use abrasive scouring powders on your seat. Some bathroom chemicals and cosmetics may damage your seat's finish.
