Elongated toilet doesn't fit where a round toilet was installed

I replaced my existing round seat toilet with an elongated seat toilet. It doesn't seem to fit the same way. The tank will not sit straight against the wall behind it. The tank is "leaning" forward and the bottom part does not sit right.

Hi. There are toilets designed to accept a round seat and there are other toilets designed to accept an elongated seat. The primary difference is that the round seat fits a round bowl and the elongated seat fits an elongated bowl.

I recommend that you return the elongated seat and exchange it for a round toilet seat. good luck

Where is the serial number - toilet is 25 yrs old and need a new toilet seat.


Typically there is no serial number associated with a toilet seat. The seat will either be a round front or an elongated seat. Just make sure the shape is the same when purchasing the replacement seat.

Where can I purchase a new Kohler 85330-cp-17 Teal replacement molded wood elongated toilet seat for our existing toilet?


You cannot. As you state, it is discontinued, confirmed on Kohler site.

If color is really important, consider painting it or a new replacement using an appliance epoxy spray paint such as Rust-Oleum after careful preparation of the surfaces.

The seat of my Toto Zoe Washlet is breaking. I would like to replace it. The manufacturer does not carry it. Where can I buy one?


Companies like Bemis make seats for other companies. Find out whether your seat is elongated or round and go to your nearest hardware store and order one through Bemis. IF it is of COLOR, then write down any codes inside your tank before you go to your nearest store. This may help the associate find the right color through Bemis.

What size toilet seat fits a sanicompact elite?


Hi,

The manual http://www.saniflo.co.uk/pdf/install/Sanicompact.pdf shows that the lid and seat is of an elongated design and I think that you would need to get a direct replacement instead of trying to fit a standard seat/lid combo as a replacement. A normal seat/lid may line up with the fixing holes, but would probably not be the same elongated design.

You should be able to get a direct replacement from your plumbers merchant (may need to order), or from Saniflo directly http://www.saniflo.co.uk/

If this helps please leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Problem with seat hinges


The best fix here is to purchase two new seats which come with the hinges attached. they are easy for the home owner to install. You can get them at any home depot or lowes where u will have many choices of color, design etc. Be to sure to note whether your toilet seats are round or elongated as you will want a round sear for a round toilet and an elongated seat for an elongated toilet. get back if you have any questions. the new seats will cost 15-40 dollars each depending on which ones you select.

Toto C100 Toilet Washlet Seat


There are two types of bowls as far as toilets are concerned...elongated and round front. The seats are interchangable as long as there isn't anything different in the way the seat is mounted to the toilet. As far as I know and my experiance with both brands, I can't see any reason why it would not work.

Unable to fit a toilet seat


Hi neenyc02.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: The cistern to your toilet is behind a wall. and you can't fit a new seat

I'm having trouble visuallising your problem. For the average toilet there are only two sizes, round front and elongated. Compost and other special types are usually made to accept one or the other. If we're talking about a small marine tupe or such it would still install very much the same way. If you could upload some clear pictures of your problem it would help a great deal. In any case you will need access to the bolt holes (top & bottom).

Feel free contact me again!
