Product Overview

The HydroCap improves wax ring performance and ensures a better seal than a wax ring alone. It creates a frame area to keep wax in place and to eliminate waxy mess and allows toilet to be reset without using a new wax ring. It stabilizes toilet bolts for easy toilet seating and features a self-centering gasket that grabs the base of toilet for a tight seal. The HydroCap can be used with any pipe, toilet or collar size and includes a debris cover. The deep drain funnel channels water into discharge pipe.

Customer Questions & Answers

When I place the cap on the bottom of the toilet it fits just about flush, maybe 1/8 inch below the bottom of the tank base.

Tile has been installed, so on my flange I added a 1/4 inch spacer to close up the gap a little. If I measure the gap from the top of the flange to level with the surface if the tile, it is 3/8's of an inch. Question #1 , looks like I have 1/8 + 3/8 = 1/2 inch total gap. With a 1" standard wax ring will it work or is the gap between the flange and the bottom of the cap to small? Question 2 , would I need to remove the spacer to allow more room for the wax to work? Question 3, lastly, any benefit to attaching the seal to the bottom of the bowl and running a bead of plumbers putty, caulk-adhesive, wax, as a back up? Don't care about ability to remove again later. Want once and done for decades? Newbie Mike.
Asked by: NewbieMike
Hello, Mike. Thank you for choosing Danco products. A 1" wax ring should work just fine, with or without the spacer, and without applying any additional sealant.

Will this work with wax-less rings?

Asked by: DIYdude
Thank you for your inquiry. This was designed to cover wax rings. We never tested it with waxless rings. Logically, there doesn't seem to be a reason it wouldn't, we just can't give a definitive yes.

Can you use a reinforced wax ring with plastic throat, or just a regular wax ring. Will throat on the HydroCap fit inside the throat of a reinforced wax ring? Instructions don't indicate which type of wax ring to use.
Asked by: ballistec
Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this will work with a reinforced wax ring.

HydroCap Sure Seat Wax Ring Cap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to make up the difference with a new toilet... Had to make up the difference with a new toilet and new tile, which raised the floor a half inch. The choice is a double wax ring, which might eventually fail and is very hard to line up. This product was every easy to use and made the installation a one person job. With this cap, the waste flows through the rubber bladder rather than the wax seal. The wax seal is only used to seal out vapors. Documentation says wax seal on the top side is not required, but I chose to put it in just for safety. Very satisfied I chose this rather than the double wax ring approach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem solver! Changed the toilet out last summer been getting unpleasant odors occasionally every since, finally pulled the toilet up again and the wax ring liked about a 1/4" sticking to the bottom of the toilet so sewer smell was getting into the bathroom. This flange added on top of the wax ring took care of the issue. So glad!

Keep in mind it's is a "Wax Ring Cap". You still need to put a wax ring on (or foam ring) first then place this cap over the top. I think this would work best to solve a toilet flange issue which is just a bit too low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good helper I'm a General Contractor. Had to install a toilet that has the bolt holes inside the skirt. Always a problem. This ring held the bolts firmly in place which made the task so much easier. Will use again.
