I changed from wax to waxless rings some time ago.
Today I found the toilet was leaking again around the base.
I've pulled it apart and find that the gooey seal they use to adhere the
ring to the bottom of the toilet did not stick well , was smeared off the
ring and did not adhere to the toilet at all. There is no sign of residue on
the toilet. I probably smeared it when lining up the flange bolts.
Is there a better adhesive/seal that I can use on the old ring after
cleaning or should I just try another whole waxless ring?
The brand of the old ring is not the brand that was usiually recommended on
this board but it was what the local HD had. We now have a Lowes and there
is a local Ace.
I want to do this one more time and never again.
