Question about Home
Hi, I am replacing a rounded BTW toilet seat and the measurements are: between holes=150mm, width=370mm, length=430mm. I bought a Ceso Rue Softclose from B&Q as per this description http://www.diy.com/rooms/cedo-rue-soft-close-toilet-seat/37234_BQ.prd The website mentioned "Fast fix fully adjustable stainless steel hinge". However, it just arrived and the measurements on the box say this: Holes: 155mm Width: 370mm Length: 420-450mm I have called B&Q twice now and no one is able to tell me whether the 5mm discrepancy between the hole distance is going to be a problem or not! Does anyone know? Thanks!
I believe the European standard for distance between fixing holes is 155mm +/- 10 mm. I am not familiar with the actual products you are using, but often these holes are slightly oversize. Your seat may fit depending on this, as well as on the actual diameter of the fixing bolts. You have two options - try it or not. If you don't try it I assume you'll return it. If you do try it and it doesn't fit, you'll return it. You might as well try it, because if it fits, you're done! Good luck.

Don't know if you have calcium build up problems. If you do you could pour a calcium cleaner into the tank to try and clear up the problem. This would be the only way to possibly clean the enclosed area. Good Luck. Jeff

You don't want to overtighten since you could crack the porcelain. Are your rubber washers in good shape? This will help. You should be able to do this w/out doing any damage.
