    While I think the Toto toilet is a superior design, I too am quite disappointed with their lackluster customer support stance on the soft close toilet seat. We are in a similar situation where it is...

    I got a response from Toto customer support, and they only warranty their seats (and other parts) for one year, so I am out of luck on that. I then went to their website store and replacement soft...

    Thanks for the info and I'll do a search to try and find the post or thread you're referencing. And if Toto doesn't have any ideas or won't stand behind the parts, I'll try to do the same thing. ...

    When I previously called the local plumbing company who put the toilets in, they said that they had never heard of a failure of the slow closing seats. In the meantime, I sent an email to Toto...

    I have a 1000 gallon Dura-Crete tank that is made in Salt Lake City, and while it is a respected design around here, it really doesn't have discreet compartments, other than perhaps the small "well"...
