After replacing toilet wax, it still leaks. Do the bottom of the toilet come in different sizes?

  • Did you put in the wax ring with the plastic middle so the wax ring does not slide? This is a common problem when replacing a wax ring. The wax slides and the toilet leaks. they are $5-$6 at any store for the wax ring with the plastic donut that holds the ring in place while you put the toilet back on. Good luck.

    A plumber once told me he always uses 2 wax seals when installing toilets. I've replaced 2 toilets in my house and used 2 wax seals, one on tope of the other, and then set the toilet in place then I sat down to really squish it in place. Haven't had a leak and its been about 6 years.

    did this too only to find out after the 3rd attempt with a new wax ring that the toilet had a small crack. Took it back and they replaced it. Frustrating! just a thought!
