    Default Legs take Nap

    I have a good customer who has informed me that when either she or her husband use the new elongated toilet I installed, their legs fall asleep. They are normal sized people and their existing two toilets are round fronts. There is a good plastic seat on this new toilet.
    I have never heard this complaint before. Please offer me some help or even acknowledgement if anyone has heard this before.

    Just how long are they spending "on the job"? Also, is the height different than their other toilets? Are they vertically challenged folks whose feet do not reach the floor?

    It's funny you mention that, just this week I was sitting in a directors chair, the fabric kind and felt the same thing.

    It's not a regular or elongated thing I would guess. The back part of the seat would be the same.
    Must be something in the shape or lack of that is doing it.

    Default sleep

    Ihave never heard of it, but the problem could be the extra 2" to the seat plus the fact that it is more "pointed" which could put pressure on the back of their legs and interfere with circulation.
