I am puting in a new sub floor and vinyl in the bathroom. Therefore the
toilet flange will be 3/8" lower than the new floor. Anyone have this
experience? Any thoughts on the extra thick wax seal made for this situation
and sold at Home Depot? This seal has a plastic funnel type dealy that fits
right into the flange, they say leak proof. Don't really want to have to
chop up my plumbing for an extra 3/8". Thanks

I did the exact same thing a few months ago (tiled my upstairs bathroom and
had to put a subfloor in). My flange ended up being a bit lower than the
floor so I used one of those extra thick wax seals from Home Depot.
It was about $6, it had a "reinforcement" ring inside the was (made of some
spongle like material) and a built in plast funnel type dealy. Worked well
for me, not a leak.
Make sure that the area where the toilet will be seated is absolutley level;
use a level to check in every direction. My toilet is now rock solid, no
leaks, no problems.
