I'm replacing a toilet and have a couple of questions about the wax
ring gasket. The one that I bought didn't have a sleeve. The old
toilet, which I've removed, had a sleeve with its gasket.
1) Should I use the plain wax ring, go back and buy a new one with a
sleeve, or use the old sleeve with the new plain wax ring?
2) If I use the plain wax ring, it has an interior diameter larger
than the drain horn on the toilet. Should I just press it against the
bottom of the toilet, or press it in so it touches the outside of the
3) If I use the old sleeve, I figure that I can cut the wax ring in
half so I have two, thinner rings, and sandwichthe old sleeve between
the rings. Is there something wrong with that plan?
4) Something else I'm missing?
Thanks in advance,
