“Older models” (vintage) toilet seats, where can I find them? Identification and recognition.
Where can you find WC COVERS FOR OLD MODELS?
At Sintesibagno, of course!
A wide selection of toilet seat replacements for older models can be found on our specialised Sintesibagno online toilet seat sales site!
What is meant by “old-fashioned toilet seat cover”?
Of course, this term refers to very old sanitary series, referring to the 70s, 80s and 90s, so we are talking about toilets made up to 50 years ago! In these cases – having put the series out of production – companies often no longer even produce the replacement for the toilet seat cover. In some cases there is even more of a problem for items even from the 60s – rare cases, but they can occur! To be fair, even toilet seats from the early 2000s can fall into the category of ‘old models’, especially if the original articles are already out of production!
Why is it difficult to replace an old seat?
If we have presided over the creation of the bathroom ourselves and, over the years, have not had to replace the toilet seat cover, we may no longer remember the make and series/model of the sanitary fittings! Maybe we had kept the catalogues and documents with the technical specifications, now we look for them but can no longer find them! We are certain, however, that somewhere there were inscriptions printed on the toilet bowl, we look for them but they have disappeared or are illegible, worn out by time!
We don’t know what model to look for to replace the toilet seat!
When we have taken over an already furnished house, unless we are experts in bathroom fittings, it is rather difficult to understand the make and model of the toilet when it comes to changing the toilet bowl cover. Also because most people – in such cases – prefer, for reasons of hygiene and otherwise, to change the pre-existing toilet seat cover used by the previous tenants!
Finding an “old-fashioned” toilet seat cover: solving the problem!
Don’t spend too much time researching on the web, comparing measurements, centre distances, shapes, templates, … it’s better to use the free compriwater model identification/recognition service!
The service allows you to receive, against the transmission, by e-mail or Whatsapp, of 2 images of your WC, a link that will take you directly to the the article suitable to be placed on your toilet! Attention! You will be provided with a single link to the toilet seat with the best price/quality ratio but, remember, by browsing the site – for the same model – it is often possible to find other alternatives.
