Most wax rings are standard size. You should pull your toilet off again and scrape off all the old wax. If your toilet flange is below floor level, you may have to use two wax rings, one on top of the other. You can buy rings of different thicknesses, but standard rings should work. When you've placed the rings, place the toilet back on the flange bolts and push down HARD wiggling side to side. When you've got it down as far as you can go, sit on the bowl and wiggle side to side. Repeat this process until the toilet is sitting flush with the floor. NO PENNIES!

How do I install wax ring on toilet when no holes for bottom bolts?


The wax ring gets installed on the bottom of the toilet, then the toilet gets installed over the bolts, which poke their way through the wax ring and extend through the mounting holes. This ensures a good seal around the bolts. Be sure to press down firmly on the bowl to seat the wax ring before you install the nuts.

How do I fix a toilet that is leaking around the bottom


The toilet is seated in a wax ring when installed. Over time, the seal can deteriorate. The usual solution is to remove the toilet and the wax ring and replace the ring with a new one. The toilet should be reinstalled using care to ensure that it presses down on the wax ring evenly and forms a tight seal

Need to remove thetford toilet to replace wallboard at back removed all sighted screws andremoved mastic toilet is loosend but canot lift it out seemsasd though its screwed underneath but canot see any...


Under the toilet is a round wax ring. If this toilet has been in place for a number of years, it could be holding the toilet down like it is screwed in the floor. Try using a long scraper to push under the toilet to loosen this wax ring,.

When the toilet is flushed water comes out from under the toilet bowl


The wax ring has gone bad. If the toilet moves when you set on it you might try snugging down the bowl bolts on both sides but be very careful not to go to tight you will brake the bowl.
If you decide to try to fix this your self with you buy a new wax ring buy the one with the horn in it they seal better.

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.

Toilet leaks into floor and lower level ceiling, no water on bathroom floor.


Either wax ring or sewage pipe is leaking. If you cant open the ceiling from below to look for leak you may have to remove toilet inspect pipe and look to see if it was leaking from wax ring and if it could have gone downstairs without leaking out too. If leak couldn't have come from wax ring the leak must be coming from a pipe in the floor. Find the simplest way to access it to repair it.

I need to replace the wax seal on my jacuzzi perfecta toilet, do i need to order one from jacuzzi or can i use a generic one from a hardware store?


I would just use the one from hardware store. nothing special about the wax from the manufacturer except the price...

be sure to do a thurough cleaning on the bottom of the toilet and make sure it is dry before you install new wax ring or it will leak.
you can actually use a hair dryer or set it in the sun to soften the wax ring, don't melt it, just soften it. makes a much easier time when setting the toilet down onto the wax.

Tiled bathroom floor. Went to install toilet


hi, the tile is supposed to go under the toilet flange (the thing you put the wax ring on), very common "oops", can be rectified by placing another wax ring right on top of the first on. best to make the first one a "horn type" wax ring, then put the plain one (no horn) on top of first and try to smoosh it on just enough to stay in place so when you install toilet it doesn't move,.....cheers!

What is the proper way to stack wax rings? I hear


You place the plastic sleeve down toward the drain. If that does not seal due to the floor being higher than the drain mount simply add another wax ring minus the plastic sleeve. You can buy wax rings that do not have the plastic sleeve. In lots of cases you have to use 2 wax rings to get a good seal. Make sure you securely tighten the toilet down.

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!!
