The first benefit of getting an automatic closing toilet seat is convenience. No longer will you have to worry about someone forgetting to leave the toilet seat closed.
Second the fact that the toilet seat will be closed most of the time means that harmful bacteria will be closed in and won’t have a chance to spread around the house and cause illness.
You are also protected from laying your hands on a toilet that is littered with waste bacteria. There are millions of those pesky disease-causing organisms per square inch and with the automatic seat, you will not have to touch any.
These seats are simple to install and usually come in a size that can fit most toilet bowls. They are also easy to remove and clean.
However, automatic closing toilet seats also come with disadvantages. Firstly, as much as they are compatible with most toilets, this is not to say that they are compatible with all. That means that in case your toilet is not in the right size, you may not be able to enjoy the benefits of one.
The other problem has to do with the damage. In case something goes wrong, it is not very simple to repair the automatic toilet seat and most times the best solution would be to get a replacement.
