Hi all

The hinge parts on my toilet seat have broken. I don't know the first thing about such things... Is it possible to buy just those parts and if so would I have to find exact replacements or are there universal ones that would work? Or do I need to get a whole new seat. It is a bit of an unusual shape. And it has always been in the house so I don't know where it was bought from...

Any help would be most appreciated.

Cheers

Hi

Thanks for the quick reply. I think that would be too straight at the front. But tbh I didn't even think to look at Screwfix, so I'll have a look at what else they have. The seat is in reasonable condition, so replacing the hinges would be choice number one. But if it has to be the hole seat then so be it.

Here's a pic of the whole toilet:

PS - RE; the staining at the bottom of the loo.... The toilet is in a cellar and so is connected to a macerator / masticator and someone once told me that it is best not to use any limescale removing products. I've always had great success with vinegar and boiling water in other loos but have avoided doing it on this toilet based on that advise. Was the guy right or can I go ahead and give it the vinegar / boiling water treatment?

What about these then? http://www.screwfix.com/p/toilet-seat-h ... pack/69548

Not sure about a macerator, I thought it was just a blade to chop up teh solids so I cannot see why any limescale products woudl affect its functionality. I would use Viakal on that or even some brick acid.
