I am having a new ceramic floor installed in my bathroom. I have a couple
of questions about reinstalling the toilet.
1. The toilet had the two bolts at the rear of the base and two screws at
the front? Can I reinstall the toilet with only two bolts and forego the
2. Since the toilet is going to sit higher (the previous floor was linoleum)
do I only need a thicker seal on the horn or do I need to raise the flange?
There is a new 'seal' out that replaces the wax ring. It is a plastic
fitting that glues to the toilet and extends quite a ways down the
drain pipe fitting. Has two sorta flexible flanges that does the
sealing. Easily accomodates thicker floors and there is no more
problem of wriggling the toilet around to get it down solid. I can't
give the name as a neighbor supplied the one I just used and I didn't
really look at the box.
I should have added more info:
The name of the item is "wax free toilet seal" If you go down their
listing on the left side of the home page you will find it about 3/4 of
the way down. Wonder why they don't have a search function on that
