Usually 12 inches in from the wall, but measure the toilet to be sure.

How to fix a new toilet flange so it will not leaked down onto the drain pipe


Hi Connie.

Hoping I'm visualizing this properly. The stand pipe under the house is generally pointing upward and has a flange on it. The toilet will have an indent on the bottom that is somewhat larger that the flange diameter. Then there will be a wax ring that is seated around the neck of the flange right before the toilet is placed down on top of it. The general process is that a new wax ring is placed, the toilet is lifted and, as carefully as possible, lowered straight down over the floor bolts. Once it makes contact on the floor, the toilet is gently rotated a small bit clockwise and counterclockwise to make sure that there is a good solid contact with the wax. The toilet is set square to the wall and, hopefully, with the floor bolts centered on the slots. Someone sits down carefully on the toilet to put pressure on the wax and seal it (this should not be done on a cold day, as the wax may not flow, and may even crack and leave a gap).

From what I saw you write, my questions would be whether the wax gasket was installed. if not, pull the toilet, obtain a gasket, and try again. if one was installed, were the remains of the old gasket thoroughly cleaned away from flange and toilet bottom? if not, the old wax may have cause uneven flow/sealing with the new ring (too much wax in the space).

You can also check that the leak isn't coming from higher up, like at the join from bowl to tank. If it's leaking there, depending on your toilet model, it might leak once the flapper is lifted in the tank, flow down the back outside of the toilet, and down under the house. In that case, it could be a bad seal, or the tank-to-toilet bolts not having been tightened.

Hoping this gives you some ideas

Kohler Toilet 1.6 Gallon Flush Install Tips.

We just recently installed two of these and they work perfectly.

LESSONS LEARNED:

-This is a almost complete in box and needs to only install the tank and seat. It also came with a new wax ring and bolts.
-What you also need is Full ring flange repair kit, (this is a round metal ring that goes over the existing plastic flange on the floor), put in as many screws as you can. On both we broke the plastic flange while installing the bolts. also the second one we also added a washer on the back side of the metal flange repair ring this made the connection even stronger.
-The new bolts that hold the toilet to the floor will be to long and an need to be cut off. Don't just try to brake it off, we ran in to big trouble and is how we broke the flange.
-Lastly go ahead and use Tub sealant and put a bead around the floor and base of toilet, this will keep it more secure and not allow any fluids to seep under the toilet and start smelling.

Hope this tip helps.

Leak from the toilet every time it is flushed. It is a new toilet, flange, extender, and wax ring all installed 1 year ago.


Lift your toilet off again and replace the wax ring check the bottom of the toilet for cracks and make sure it is clean. Then install the toilet make sure to tighten flange bolts evenly DON'T OVER TIGHTEN. Try that to start with.

On both we broke the plastic flange while installing the bolts. also the second one we also added a washer on the back side of the metal flange repair ring this made the connection even stronger.

Toilet on uneven floor


I believe that I qualify... over 300 toilets installed in the past 15 months!!

I would go with the wax rings... but I would press the ring into the base of the toilet before installing the toilet....that way you are sure to have a good seal to the toilet....

If you actually read the directions, the manufacturer will tell you to press the wax ring onto the toilet....then install it onto the floor drain.
I guess that a PLAIN wax ring placed on the floor drain (since it is recessed) before placing the rubber-sleeve equipped ringed toiled is a good safety measure... I have done that an it work about 37 times out of 40.

Good question - BTW.. and well worded. THANKS for being specific and precise!!

Toilet - 14 inch rough in


Hrm, I see what you mean and this may be a bit late.

The 14" rough in is not standard (as in 12") and the depth (from the back of the tank to the front edge of the bowl is your concern here?).

Kohler also has a Sterling brand with the Windham model. This will sit on the 14" rough and measure less than 30" from the back wall.

You could also go with a Toto ($$$ concerns) as they have a unifit system that allows for adjustment from your roughed in closet/toilet flange. It basically mounts to your flange and then sets back 2" or 4" depending on which model Toto toiler you are installing. The Soiree-?sp may be your best bet for depth concerns, but not so good for your wallet.

Looking for a compact toilet, 10'' rough-in


It's a year later... and you've probably already figured it out, but for those of you who may come upon this with a similar question: home improvement stores carry off-set flanges that you can install to give you a couple inches where your toilet (standard is 12" rough in these days) will fit in a smaller space. We needed a rough-in of 10 1/2" and the off-set flange did the trick!

What is the required rough in dimension? I am replacing it


If you have the old toilet removed and are looking at the flange - the piece that holds the bolts to hold toilet down- measure off the back wall to the center of the opening of the flange. If the old toilet is still installed you can measure on one side to the closet bolts holding the toilet down and this will get you a general idea.If you need more assistance let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
