Such an invention allows not only to get rid of the unpleasant sound of the falling cover, but also will not allow it to burst or form a chip on the plumbing.

In the absence of a rim, the water leaves a fast stream, which thoroughly bathes a smooth surface without any additional means

How to choose a seat with microlift?

  • To properly select the lid, you need to measure the dimensions of the toilet bowl. They are inscribed in the warranty card or you can make measurements yourself (determine the length and width of the toilet bowl).

Advice! Measure the distance between the fasteners is not worth it, it is always standard. It should be remembered that the cover refers to goods that can not be exchanged, so you need to know the exact size. To buy cheap products is also not worth it, since most often these are goods of poor quality.

  • When selecting products, pay attention to the quality of the manufacture of fasteners and the warranty period for the goods. Do not forget about the external design of the toilet, it must fit into the interior of the room. The market offers seats with additional functions of self-cleaning, heating, air aromatization.
