How to replace toilet cistern and seat?

How to replace toilet cistern and seat?

I want to replace my seat and cistern as it’s old (images). Are there universal seats and cistern that would work? Otherwise what requirements/measurements do I need to factor in to purchase a suitable seat and cistern? Ideally want a packaged system with both parts rather than looking for two separate parts.

Can you please make some recommendations as to which products Would definately work for this job?

Re: How to replqce toilet cistern and seat?

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @anniediy. It's brilliant to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about replacing a toilet cistern and seat.


If you were to purchase either the Estilo White Replacement Cistern With Seat, FIX-A-LOO WELS 4 Star 4.5L-3L/Min White Millennium Cistern With Toilet Seat And Link, or FIX-A-LOO WELS 3 Star 3-5.8L/min Hygenix Touchless Cistern With Seat And Link they are very-likely to suit your current toilet.


If you did decide to mix and match, most seats have a universal adjustment system for their mounting bracket, so you should be fine selecting any seat from our range. To be sure, you can take your seat with you, and a helpful team member will be able to assist in selecting something to suit. For your cistern, you'll need to avoid any close-couple units as these are designed for a specific pan style, which yours is not.


Please let me know if you have further questions.
