Got my new Toto toilet delivered today. Went to the borg to get a wax ring.
I find there are about 10 choices. I thought a wax ring was a wax ring...
There are no.1 or no.3 or no. 10. Some have horns. What the heck should I
buy? The instructions for the toilet only say 'wax ring'. I have a brand
new house, so I know the floors are good, etc
Forget the wax ring altogether. Go with a "Fernco waxless toilet
seal". You'll never go back to using the wax type again. AFAIK there
is only one size. I has flex seals that go down inside the drain
Amen. Best <$10 i ever spent. [Fernco doesn't seem like the
brand name of the one I used- but it was the same rubber as their
If it was $30 it still would have been a bargain. I was working in
a bathroom for an extended period & it was too small to leave the
toilet in place- but my wife found that toilet too important to be
without. So every day for a week, I took the toilet out in the
morning and put it back at night. I never would have gone
through that hassle with wax seals.

Yup- That's the one-
All will fit your regular toilet. The difference is in the waste
pipe- 3", 4" or fits both. It's been a couple years but I think mine
must have been a 'fits both' as I still have a little 3" part kicking
around in my plumbing box.
Found a Fernco no-wax seal at a local plumbing supply house. (go figure)
The thing worked perfectly. The best part was the adhesive on the seal.
Stuck in on the toilet horn, then right into the drain. I would HIGHLY
recommend the Ferco seal for anyone skiddish about using a wax ring.
Thanks to all for the help.
