Finally got my partner to fit it. He said it was the biggest nightmare as our toilet was boxed in so had to go through loads of pipes. Had to get a special toilet wrench to install. So double check. Also check your toilet seat fitting. Spent half hr trying to rotate it so it fits flush. Gave up as the heat was getting too much (lol) Apart from a wobberly seat. So much better and hygienic then a simple wipe. Plus cleans the feminine parts too (excited)
Bidets and smart toilets are still better and more hygienic, although obviously more expensive.
I normally rinse after a bath
Well for one thing I don't have a shower at work! (lol)
I remember back in the day my English friends used to ask me what the empty glass milk bottle in the toilet was for. N when I said to wash our bum after a (poo) it blew their mind. N now it is accepted as a economical, environmentally friendly and more hygienic method of having a squeaky clean bum hole

Cooke & Lewis Standard Closing Toilet Seat Moulded Wood White @ Screwfix Well reviewed seat. Hope it helps someone (y) Moulded wooden toilet seat with high gloss finish.… Read more
Yeah actually bought it a few weeks ago to upgrade a Screwfix 50 quid toilet which I fitted to replace a pink loo. It's OK but the reviews are correct. The quick clips to remove it feel fragile. The back rubber bumpers don't quite touch the toilet until you sit on them. If you are a bigger person I wouldn't sit on the lid (I'm 11stone and it's fine) cheap and cheerful really. Will do me until I get round to refurbing the ensuite.
Install the CCTV camera underneath the lid. Next best thing.
Shame there's no transparent one. I want to see my (poo) go down the pan up close without the splashback effect.
Wilko have an antibacterial one on offer for £10. It’s pretty decent
Anyone have this? Looking for a soft close one with a bit of weight in it still.

Soft-close With Quick-release Toilet Seat Duraplast White £14.99 @ Screwfix (Free Click & Collect)£14.99£24.9940% offScrewfix Deals
We've had one of these for a few years and it's been fine, nice and sturdy with no problem with the soft close. Easy to fit too, you don't have to reach underneath to screw on nuts either, it's all done from above. The quick release is a bonus for easy, more thorough cleaning.
Bought today . Great engineering . Easily fitted B & Q have the same item for £27
I haven’t yet. It’s another unfinished DIY job. The missus keeps reminding me (annoyed)
£19.99 again now
Is this a special one or....bog standard! Joking apart I bought a replacement seat from Costco some time ago but my wife complains it isn't the right size. They come in different lengths and widths so bear this in mind when replacing said item.
Bought them, will check the quality and the fitting

Its back at this price. Just realised this needs to be plugged into the electrical socket... I don't know about most people's bathrooms but there is no electrical socket anywhere near my toilet. also, my water supply is very integrated and hidden and so i dont think i'd be able to install the water adaptor that this needs without calling a plumber over: set up for this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zY-URVqkGY
Great price. The generic Chinese seats imported here and sold in bathroom stores are about £400, with few features and questionable build quality. If you're over in Japan at some point you can buy a good spec Panasonic seat for around £400 (export 230V model for Chinese market) from the big stores in Akihabara, that will be much better. Only issue will be the seat probably won't match your pan perfectly, which is fine on a retrofit or replacement, but likely not if you're completely redoing a bathroom and want it to look great. You can buy European made models (Geberit, Grohe, VitrA etc.) now for high hundreds, and then the Totos imported from Japan can go up to £8k+. I have heard they are being put in more and more high spec apartments and houses, alongside new retirement living places. People have been saying this for decades now, but I'm sure most people will be finally using these in the West in 20 years.
Great deal. Missed it. Over £300 now
I imagine it would, but flushing a toilet without putting the seat down first will create a toilet plume anyway, and with your bum on the seat an aerosol would mostly be contained. The better Japanese seats have a fan with an activated charcoal filter on the intake to eliminate smells, and can also blow dry your bum to save even more toilet paper.

This is a lesson on how to make something made from the poorest materials sound good! Made from moulded wood. Moulded wood is a modern composite.
The material is made out of 92% of virgin wood from local coniferous
trees and 8% of binders of different qualities. My interpretation - woodchip complete with contrasting aluminium hinges My interpretation - made from cheap aluminium and not really strong enough for the intended use.

you dont need this toilet just use one of these. If unsure please ask any of your asian friends (y)
Quite right. You need to rub clean with water. Hence the need to only clean with toilet paper and then use water and rub clean with on hand only. That leaves you free to open the tap and operate the soap dispenser with the other clean hand so you do not contaminate the tap and touch soap dispenser. Then you can wash hands safely. Doing poo-poo clean-up is difficult stuff and needs a great deal of thought.
There absolutely nothing wrong with normal toilets. Its the washing of poo-poo away that is important after toilet paper use. Just using toilet paper alone, will not cut it.
Prefer bog standard loo.
Look, I enjoy good poo-poo everyday....sometimes 2 and occasionally 3 poo-poos a day. But, I am deadly serious about the clean up....DEADLY SERIOUS!!!!

You're not wrong lol, I'm going to get a sparky in to add sockets round the other side of the toilet and run a porthole or something through..
How did you ever get on fitting this, I'm very happy with mine, I suspect we were the only ones that actually bought this. That change was not bad, they could have his you with about £50 if they knew the real value.
My order is arriving on Monday. Didn't get so lucky with parcelforce - £5.58 VAT + £12 handling fee is due.
Does it wipe your arse for you?

Antibacterial materials are definitely a thing and used in medical devices and lab equipment. The antibacterial mechanism varies but some use a coating of silver or copper ions which interfere with the cells chemistry. Antibacterial doesn't mean self-cleaning so they only really work when in direct contact with the bacteria, a bit like UV lamps or Alcohol gel only work effectively on already clean surfaces, they don't wash them.
What is mean antibacterial? bacteria avoid this toilet seat, go for next door neighbour toilet seat. :D
Probably- I’d still clean it the same as any other toilet seat (excited) although I might be full of (poo) (poo)
Hi I bought and fitted this today. Seems alright but doesn’t appear to give a snug fit so to speak. However hard I tighten the bolts, the seat looks like it may have a tendency to move side-side. Any recommendations? To clarify - it’s snug now - but just using my hands I will be able to move side-side and with the weight of a persons arse on it - I’m unsure how long it will last?
Well said. And if the price is right, it a bonus on top (highfive)
I picked one of these up today. Easy and quick enough to fit, fits my bum nicely and gives me something to go on. What more do you need in a toilet seat?
Not particularly bothered what it looks like its for parking my ass on.
I bought a slightly more expensive one of these for my girlfriend for her birthday once, thinking i was being really thoughtful. ungratefull mare threw things at me. I still dont understand why. Surely a anti bacterial soft close seat is a cool present?
