Default Toilet Trouble on Costa Esuri

I have an apartment in Las Encinas on Costa Esuri and a couple of very tired toilet seats that need replacing. I don’t know where to get the replacements and was hoping someone else had already replaced theirs and could point me in the right direction. The seats are round at the front and square at the back, which sit flush with the shape of the toilet. Any help would be much appreciated 🤞

Last time I needed one I bought it online, there is a huge selection to choose from. For example

https://www.amazon.es/s?k=tapas+de+w...l_2lqclbgcd0_e

Other suppliers are available, just Google "tapas de inodoro"

It was raining cats and dogs there last week.

Do you mean the toilet seat is 'straight at the back', rather than being "square at the back"?

Does the image below show the shape of your loo seat?

Straight back to rear, parallel sides terminating in a semicircular, on the front end.

Well, if I was replacing the toilet seat I'd go the whole hog and get new mats also and maybe even curtains.

But all depends on he colour scheme you have going in the bathroom.

Just replaing one item can end up a can of worms as you look at everything else and can find yourself doing a whole refurb on the entire bathroom.

Uncle buck, I think you're on a slippery slope there....

O dear, do keep your hair on Uncle Buck.

What brand - marque is the toilet? A manufacture normally will print their name on the cistern somewhere...

When you find it, use google translate for "toilet seat" and place in your search engine search box - spanish for toilet seat, brand - marque and your location.. It should give you distributors in that area..

Do you have a large hardware shop near you

Leroymerlin? or Bricor

If so they will have a decent display of toilet seats on show.

This article on Leroy Merlin´s site shows that there are 3 shapes of toilet , round, oval and rectangular. They also advise on how to measure the toilet bowl to get the correct size. Then is is just a straight choice of colours and prices.

We got replacement seats as you describe from Abreu in Lepe. It's just of town on the L'Antilla road - off the first roundabout.

Default Re: Toilet Trouble on Costa Esuri

Thanks for the replies guys. I am particularly interested in the ones that fit the contours of the toilet i.e. the lid is flush with the back of the toilet pan. Hard to describe without a picture but those on Las Encinas/Esuri would know. I will take a look at the suggested places and hopefully I can find what I need 👍

Toilet seats largely follow general standards, so the most important thing is to measure the distance between the mounting bolts and the width and depth of the lid.

Toilet seats can be found in the Ferrer electrodomesticos store either in the Ayamonte store next to the market hall, but at least in their Industrial Zone store.
These can also be found inexpensive in most of Ayamonte's "China stores" and there is nothing wrong with them.
With the mentioned dimensions it is easy to check the fit. If you want to make sure, remove one seat and take it with you to the store. (these are only fastened with two bolts behind the toilet).
If you really want a wide selection, then Leroy Merlin in Lepe is a good option.
When buying, it is important to make sure that the "pads" under the seat are large enough; in the cheapest models they are small and hard plastic that will not last long.
