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.

SOURCE: Toto Dorian toilet does not flush clean

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.

Replacement seat....size???


American Standard is the brand, so you've got a start there, but 1.6 is a flush measurement. Look around the inside for a tank for a model number - with AmStan toilets it's usually a four digit number beginning with a 2 or a 4. This will be what you need to get the OEM toilet seat. However, since toilet seats are purely cosmetic (they don't affect the functioning of the toilet), you can literally take a few measurements and find something that simply keeps you off the porcelain. http://www.plumbingsupply.com is a good one for toilet seats, btw.

I have the porcher veneto toilet. I'm looking to replace the seat/cover. Veneto Elongated Toilet Seat Cover, part no. 70030.00 (white with chrome hinges) Is there a compatible cover the will work...


I too have the same toilet seat that needs replaced. Porcher just told me there is NO replacement seat that can be used and they no longer make nor have stock of this toilet seat. I have a local company looking into the problem and will get back to me. For now I am going to take detailed measurements of hinge placement and length/width etc, and take a tape measure to every home imporvement store in the area. Anyone with any other suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

My toilet seat broke, where do i geta replacement?


Unless there is something unusual about the seat you should be able to buy a standard replacement seat at Home Depot or Lowes. They come in round and elongated and there are a number of styles available. Measure the distance between the center of the mounting bolt holes and match with the display to see if they will work.

Just bought a cedo rue soft close. any idea of order of washers going on etc as instructions unreadable


Metal peg fixing goes "into" large plastic "cup" washer. Metal fixing now goes through holes in toilet pan sitting in the "cup" washer. From the bottom push up the thin round plastic washer, convex side towards the hole. Next the oval shaped thick washer flat side towards the hole. This has a cup shape into which the final plastic screw fitting pushes into (like a coax plug on the TV aerial). This will push up the thread into the cup where the sides force the thread to grip. Finger tighten so that you can still move the metal fixings from the top. Line up the toilet seat holes and push fit onto the pegs. It may take a smart thump to get them fully seated. Before tightening with the supplied black plastic spanner" make sure the large "cup" washer on top has not got trapped under the metal fixing. If all is ok line up the seat and tighten.

How to fix loose toilet seat on old blue toilet


Whether the bolts are nylon or brass, they all come loose after a while. The culprit is oversize holes in the china bowl. To solve the problem, go to the auto parts store and buy a short length of fuel hose, just large enough to slip over the toilet seat bolt. Cut two short pieces of hose off -- about 1/4 inch each -- with a sharp bread knife or utility knife. Fit the pieces of hose into the toilet seat mounting holes in the bowl. If the hose is too large, snip a small segment out of it to make it into a "C" shape, just large enough that the cut ends touch when inserted into the mounting holes. Install the seat as usual and snug up the nuts.

Once movement of the seat is prevented, the bolts tend to stay tight. I've performed this trick on a number of my own and friends' toilet seats and they've stayed put for 8-10 years with no signs of loosening, yet can be removed easily for maintenance and cleaning.

Use fuel hose, as it is durable and does not deteriorate with exposure to air. This trick won't work with electrical tape, duct tape or masking tape, as those materials are too soft and the adhesive cold-flows under pressure.

Have akai ap-b110 turntable needs belt. Can you tell me the length/specs


  • If you have the turntable belt:
    • State the type of belt used (Flat, Square, Round).
    • Pinch both ends of the belt.
    • Measure the pinched length.
    • Multiply the pinched length by two (2x).
    • If the turntable uses a Flat belt, measure its width (usually 0.187").
    • If the turntable uses a Round or Square belt, measure its thickness.
    • Please include the make and model of the turntable with the belt's measurements.
  • If you do NOT have the turntable belt or it is shredded:
    • State the type of belt that the turntable uses (Flat, Round or Square).
    • Use a piece of string to tightly follow the belt's path.
    • Measure the length of the string.
    • Measure the width between the rims of the motor pulley that the belt can pass through (usually 0.250 inch).
    • Please include the make and model of the turntable with the belt's measurements.

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


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
