The wax ring needs to be nice and warm and soft. It's rather messy to do so, but you can work it with your hands until it is soft. A hair dry is very helpful. An oven on very low with the door open a bit can work too, but you have to watch it. Or if it's nice and warm outside you can leave it in a closed car, but you have to watch that too.

Installed a new toilet this morning. Filled it and no leaks. Flushed the toilet and water spewed out the bottom of the back. How do we fix?


water in the bowl should not leak. but when you flush it it goes out the bottom into the drain. between the toilet and drain pipe there should be a wax ring gasket to seal the toilet to the floor drain if this wax gasket is damaged it will leak. replace with a thicker wax ring and after you put the toilet back in place sit on it to be sure it has smashed into the wax ring. and put nuts back on and tighten. do not over tighten sand crack the porcelain. this should fix your problem.

It leaks water on the floor around the base when flushed. Only leaks when flushed Godfrey


The wax ring seal on the bottom of the toilet has let go. It isn't tough to fix. Two nuts hold the toilet down. Shut the water line in back off, take the 2 nuts off, and move the toilet aside. You;ll need a new wax ring, so you'll have to scrape the old one off. It will show you how to set it in and set the seat on. It only looks tough, but it's actually simple. Good luck!

Caroma toilet 12years old, concealed cistern. Water leaking around base when toilet is flushed. water level maintained when not flushing, so the leak must be between the cistern and the bowl. Had a plumber...


Fixing a leaky toilet is actually rather simple, requiring few tools and just a little time and effort. In looking at Caroma toilets on Google, they appear to be just a standard type of unit, and should present few if any problems for yourself or any handyman of modest skill.

If it is leaking around the base of the toilet - where the toilet sits on the floor, the repair item is a simple wax seal. Here is a tutorial to effect this repair: Replace Toilet Wax Ring. The wax ring is very inexpensive, usually $5 to $10 USD.

If the water is leaking from between the tank (cistern) and the toilet bowl, the job is even easier, as it does not require lifting and moving the entire toilet. A good tutorial for that repair is here: How to Replace Tank to Bowl Gasket . The gaskets, new nuts, bolts and rubber seals come in a kit and also cost only $5 to $10 USD.

I am sorry to hear your Plumber insisted you buy an entire new toilet, but do remember he is in the business of making money!

Kohler one piece toilet. it is leaking around the bottom of the toilet but if I put the water in the back of the tank myself, it doesn't leak


if its leaking from bottom of toilet on the floor. its the wax ring that may be bad, if it does this when flushing it is either cracked or the wax ring under toilet is bad.

When you sit on the ring it veers off to the left and you are left sitting there crooked. How do we adjust it?


See if nuts on studs on bottom where it mounts to the floor & flange are loose. If they are loose tighten both of them evenly. If they are tight you will need to replace wax ring that is between toilet & floor.Turn off shutoff water valve to toilet. Flush once holding down handle to let tank drain. Remove both nuts & lift toilet off flange. Remove wax ring. Scrape all old wax off toilet & floor flange. Install new wax ring. Set down toilet on ring & snug nuts evenly. Sit on seat & apply your weight evenly to distribute wax & level. Retighten nuts. Turn water back on. Allow tank to refill. Flush toilet & check for leaks.

Replace the wax ring between the toilet and flange in the floor drain. Clean out the wax of the old ring very well.

We put the toiet in twice and it is still leaking around the base. we replaced the rubber seal. there is a rubber transition piece with a rubber seal around it and I think this is the problem


Yes, that is likely the problem. I reccomend going with the old tried and true reliable wax ring seal.

For each toilet I put in I install the poly reinforced wax ring with horn. This has consistently served to prevent leaks and call backs alowing me to have no warranty issues.

I reccomend it over the rubber seal anyday.

Here is a pic of the poly reinforced wax ring with flange.

How to Install Toilet


It's not terribly complicated, assuming that by "install a new toilet" you mean where there was alredy an existing toilet. First, remove the old toilet. Shut off the water supply valve, and flush the toilet. Then use a spone to get rid of the water that remains in the tank. Remove the nuts on the two bolts at the base of the toilet where the toilet meets the floor. These are usually hidden under two plastic caps. Now gently rock the toilet until it comes away from the floor. Get help to carry it out. Clean up the old wax that's around the flange where the pipe disappears into the floor. Don't be a wuss, it's only wax. Now you'll need the new toilet, a new supply line, new mounting bolts (don't reuse the old ones) and a two wax rings. Yes, I said two wax rings. You'll see why in a minute. Assemble the new toilet according to the instructions provided. Now here's a warning: Do NOT overtighten the bolts the hod the tank to the bowl. You're dealing with ceramics here, don't break them. Now, put the new hold-down bolts in place on the flange. Read the insturctions that came with the toilet, but you have to do this NOW. Now you'll need a helper. With the toilet upsided down, unwrap a wax ring. Make sure it's room temprature or it won't seal. Press the wax ring around the outlet flange on the base of the toilet. Now you and your helper carefully turn the toilet over without crushing the wax ring. Lift the toilet and slowly lowe it so the wax ring is centered over the "flange" which is where the sewer pipe goes into the foor. Then press the toilet firmly in place. Now if you're like most people, you screwed up here and crushed the wax ring without being centered on the flange. That's why I told you to buy two. Now you know what not to do, scrape off the first one and start again. When you've got the toilet sealed on the flange, connect and tighten the nuts on the bolts. Now you may have to use a hacksaw to cut off the remaining ends of the bolts so you can get the neat little plastic caps to fit. Now connect the water supply line. Now's where you start praying. Turn on the water and let the tank fill. Check the supply line for leaks. Fix as necessary. Now flush. Is water running out from around the base of the toilet? No? Good, you got a good seal. Yes? Very bad. Time to go back to the home center for yet another wax ring. Repeat the sealing process and get a good seal this time.
