Changing a toilet seat

Plumber installing lid on toilet in the bathroom

You’ll need: a tape measure, gloves, multi-purpose cleaner, a cloth and a new toilet seat.

Step 1 – Toilet seats come in a wide range of shapes and sizes so make sure you measure the width and length of your existing toilet seat so you can make sure your new one has the right dimensions.

Step 2 – You need to remove your existing toilet seat by unscrewing the nuts underneath. Make sure you’re wearing gloves to protect your hands from any germs. Use the multi-purpose cleaner and cloth to give your toilet a good wipe down.

Step 3 – Fix your new toilet seat in place by putting it in position over the bolt holes and tightening the nuts underneath.
