Kohler Novita Bidet BH-90 / BH-93 Bidet Seat
- Product Review (submitted on November 13, 2015):
I weigh 380 lbs, which is quite a bit over the max for this seat (or any other seat I've found). It makes taking care of myself difficult, so this seat has really changed my life. You can't imagine! I love it.
The plastic seat did break nearly immediately, I wanted to point this out for any others who might exceed the seat's weight limit. It cracked just a little, then every day it spread. We tried a lot of things to support it along the rim, which didn't work. The seat has bump outs on the bottom that hold it off the toilet and for heavy people it would be better if the seat were supported all along the rim. I think if we'd done something from the beginning it might not have cracked, but once the cracks had started, we just couldn't find a way to stop them with support.
What my husband finally did, which has worked, is to make a small access into the seat and fill in behind the cracks with spray foam that hardens. This has worked great! We disconnected the seat warmer to avoid fire hazard...we don't know that it would happen but it just seems smart. I wanted to share this solution for anyone who might have my issues. We've ordered a replacement seat and are going to just drill a small hole on each side and fill it in with the foam so it hopefully doesn't break at all.
I don't feel it's fair to hold it against this wonderful produce that it can't hold more weight than it's designed for, so I still say 5 stars! It works great in every other way.
