If you happen to have an oval-shaped toilet bowl or one that has an elongated rim, then the Toto SS114 01 SoftClose Elongated Toilet Seat is the right toilet seat for you. Generally, there are two major types of toilet seats manufactured today and they are either round or oval. The round type has a perfectly round shape that has equal crosswise dimensions.
The oval type, or otherwise known as the elongated type, is longer than it is wider, which is why it is called elongated. This brand of toilet seat is perfectly fit for elongated or oval types of toilets. To ensure that you have the right toilet type in mind, take the dimensions of your rim and see if it is elongated or simply round.
The material that this toilet seat is made of is imported and non-fabric so you can expect it to be a lot cleaner than seats that have fabric in them. Fabric tends to soak up moisture, and if it comes into contact with accidental spills or leaks such as water and urine, they tend to absorb these and keep them in, causing bacterial build up that create unwanted and unpleasant odors.
The fluids also cause fabrics to stain and swell so you end up with misshapen toilet seats that are stained, dirty-looking, and smelly. This stain and smell combination on fabric is quite tough and nearly impossible to clean up without special chemicals or equipment.
This toilet seat ensures that you will not have to deal with any of those problems since it has absolutely no fabric in its make, thus making it resistant to moisture and fluids and also making it a lot easier to clean and maintain. You can simply hose it down or wipe it with a damp cloth and you are good to go.
This is because it is actually made up of solid, high impact, high gloss propylene that does not absorb any moisture at all. Any liquid that comes in contact with it simply slides off so you are left with a clean, smooth, and dry surface that is easy to clean.
The soft close action of the Toto SS114 01 SoftClose Elongated Toilet Seat makes sure that you do not accidentally pinch your hand or finger as you shut the cover. This also eliminates slamming and the undesirable sound that accompanies it. Slamming can cause disturbances in the home, especially at night when everything is quiet and everyone is asleep. The soft close action ensures that the lid of the seat closes slowly and gently so that once it shuts, it does so quietly. You can say farewell to being startled or getting hurt by a slammed toilet cover with this brand.
Despite the solid make of the material, this toilet seat has an ergonomic design that improves your comfort as you sit on it, even for prolonged periods. Some other toilet seat brands are too flat and too rigid and make you more and more uncomfortable the longer you sit on them. The Toto SS114 01 SoftClose Elongated Toilet Seat makes sure that this does not happen.
It is specially designed so that it follows the natural contours of your body and promotes natural and proper alignment so that you are not in an awkward position or posture when seated on your toilet seat. Not all toilets seats are designed for comfort, so if comfort is your number one criteria when choosing a toilet seat, then you have definitely found the right one for you.
There have been a few reports of the propylene material being prone to breaks, especially at the molded bumper area if you happen to raise the lid too fast. If you are not a careful user or simply do not have the time or patience to do things steadily, or if you find yourself in a hurry even as you are about to use the toilet, you might want to reconsider your buying options when looking at this particular toilet brand.
The soft close feature and the ergonomic design of this toilet seat are what makes it a winner for any oval toilet. Just make sure to handle it with care when using to ensure that it serves you for a long time. This brand and variant definitely capitalizes on its unparalleled comfort, which is something that’s difficult to find in other products. It surely won’t disappoint.
