I have a toilet that I believe is a brand called "Incepa". The toilet seat that was on it broke so I threw it out and went to ********** to get a new one. Not knowing a thing about toilet seats I bought the one that looked like it would fit...well now I know how important it is to have the right toilet seat...BUT I cannot find the seat for this bizarre toilet. Can you help me. The base is kind of rectangle or square. I looked on Google but couldn't find a thing...please help before someone falls in the toilet. Thank you.Bethany

I have the same toilet as bethany by the sounds of it, and am also having major problems trying to locate a replacement.

That link left by doug is not the thing. The Incepia seat is wooden, long, wider at the back, then slightly narrower for the front section, with straight sides. If I can leave a photo on this forum, can you let me know how, and it would be a damn site easier to show you!!!

Found out incepa is a brazilian tile/ceramic company. Can't find a site selling toilet seats except this one, but can't get a homepage to load.

Hope it gives someone a clue as to how to get one.

Here's a link to the seat anyway. Look at 'Hampton' halfway down.

Thanks Doug, that was spot on. Do you know where to get these seats from in the UK? I sent an email to Astra, but suspect there may be a language barrier.

again, many thanks

I also have a broken toilet seat like the one you describe. my toilet says incepa but the seat has the man Laufen on it so I went to the Laufen website and am currently corresponding with them trying to find a replacement I just sent them a picture and am waiting to hear back. Laufen apperantly owns Incepa.

I too am searching the web for a toilet seat for the Incepa Hampton range. The nearest I can find is on the Philip Morris & Son web site, they have one that looks like it may fit but at £109.00 it may be an expensive gamble.

www.philipmorris.uk.com/prdf.php?pid=56

Will be interested to hear if anyone buys this seat, and it fits! Or if a manufacturers seat can be found.

The never ending saga.....

I sent pictures of my seat to daniela at Laufen and she says they used to make them but now it is Roca in Brazil that produces them. She gave me someone to contact at Roca and I emailed asking for info on a Canadian distributor as I am just outside Toronto. Marco at Roca was very helpful and gave me two contacts . I am posting Marcos email address at Roca so you can contact him about your own areas.

I knew it would be bad when I was having so much trouble finding the manufacturer of the mystery toilet seat. I found a place just 10 minutes from my house where I could get a new seat. But I never thought a new seat would cost $80 freakin dollars..... Should be gold plated for that price...For a couple more bucks I can put in a whole new toilet.....

Victoria, could you share the source of your toilet seat, even if expensive. I too live in the Toronto area.

I am also looking for this mystery toilet seat, but just the hinge assembly. Would any of you people have the old hinge assemble or know where I could get one? The assembly is chrome with pins.

Thanks

Eljer makes an equivalent toilet seat to the Incepa Hampton. Go to their web site at www.eljer.com and search for Savannah (Model Name) under toilet seats. The Model Number is 124-1900 (-00 white, -82 Natural/Bone, -96 Biscuit). Eljer's web site will also show you distributors in your area. I purchased several seats from Sydney Plumbing Supply in Providence, RI tel: 401-944-0200 for $50.84 + tax.

Hope this helps everyone,

Steve

Incepa toilet seats are sold under the manufacturer name Herbeau. Herbeau makes high end bathroom fixtures. If you need information on how to get this seat, you may contact me and I can order them for you. I manage a plumbing showroom in Oklahoma.

So glad to have found this site. I have this lovely toilet, although someone has messed with the flush mechanism having turned the handle rather than pushing the button & seems to have broken a spring. Plumber says parts are not available & I need a new toilet.

I have it working, if not well, & will try to get a replacement part through Ceralux or Eljer. I also want a replacement seat, as the present one has steaked badly from cleaning sprays I will varathane a new one to avoid the streaking. Any other suggestions re: replacement parts would be welcomed.

The flush button( chrome) and lever arm assembly look identical to those shown on the Eljer website for their Savannah toilet. I sure do appreciate your offer to send that part to me. Let me check tomorrow with my local Plumbing Mart store to see if the parts are available through them.If I get shut out there I will take you up on your offer.... but will that not make your toilet useless???

Thanks for the suggestion. I also found a seat. Had the Burlington, Ontario Plumbing Mart bring in an Eijer 'Savannah " seat & it fits perfectly. They also brought in a "flush push mechanism" which also fit . I actually bought 2 seats, despite the expense, because of the unique design, as I will be really out of luck if they decide to discontinue them. Now if I can just get my guests to push the flush rather than turn it.......

You can go to the Eljer website and check out their "Emblem" seat. It looks similar to your picture. Their Savannah model seat fit my Incepa Hampton Victoria model. Plumbing Mart brought it in from Eljer on a special order & I would not have had to keep it if it did not fit.

Otherwise go to www.ceralux.com who are an Ontario Company that sell the Incepa toilets. They will sell you parts & I would have used them but had already ordered through my local Plumbing Mart by the time I found them. They have pics of all their toilets & a link on their website to contact them. Good luck!

the toilet I have is the Ibiza model # 3159W Home Hardware or Rona in your area can probably order it for you, I had to go to a specialty store to order it, the cost was $100, the disappointing thing was even though I was crazy enough to buy a toilet seat for that amount of money, turns out the company had changed the design so the seat wouldnt fit without some additional tweeking. needless to say I returned the seat. Save yourself some time and buy a new toilet, its cheaper to buy a new toilet and know you can find a seat when you need one.

I have two Inceps in a second home we purchased several years ago. Both toilet seats are in good shape. The flapper ball inside the tank was worn, so I decided to replace all the inner parts. When I reset the tank, there was a leak. I tried several times, tightening the parts and the tank bolts down each time. The bowl washer looks warn and is a unique design. Does anyone know where a replacement can be bought? I think this is the source of the leak.

Thanks,

Brown County Bob

I have three of these nasty toilets in my house, the Laufen Incepa. I am just on the verge of replacing them with Toto's, I now have one in a basement washroom and they are the best I have ever seen. My Incepa's are now taking two flushes to get the job done in most cases, I have maxed the water level, cleaned the underrim holes but still poor performing. If you need parts I bought mine from The Plumbing Warehouse in Brampton, Ontario, 905-458-9690, talk to George. I have broke two of these seats, and they cost about $90.00. One thing I did which solved the breaking problem is to add two more supports to the underside of the seat, you know those little standoffs, use the ones from your old seat and just silicone them on, this will add support where it is needed. Hope this helps, and I will be so glad when I pitch mine in the dump.

the toilet seat you want is now being sold by HERBEAU which is in Florida. I contacted them and they have four dealers in Ontario and two in Quebec. I contacted Glenbriar Home Hardware in Waterloo and sent them a picture. The original incepa seat is $600 but they are getting me one that fits for $54. It is a Herbeau Carla Toilet Seat number is 0634 for the style I have.
