Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kenny Great solution after a re-tiling job
Bathroom was retiled, resulting in the drain flange being half an inch or so below flush with the new tile. Regular wax ring was not longer sufficient to create a seal and water leaked out from below toilet when flushed. Instead of fnding the right parts to build up the flange, I paid an early morning visit to Home Depot and tried this product and it was more than adequate to create a strong seal even after repositioning the toilet twice, which would have cost me at least 3 wax rings. Even though the toilet was quite heavy, I was able to use this to do the job by myself.
Very smart design, would not hesitate to purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LosRubios Brilliant solution - so much easier than a wax ring
When we installed our bathroom tile, we had to install a layer of sound proofing - in this case a layer of 3/8" thick recycled rubber. Once the marble floor tile was installed, we struggled to find a wax ring that was the correct height to properly seal the toilet to the waste pipe. We used a 1 1/2" tall wax ring however this didn't quite seal to the underneath of the toilet so we ended up with unpleasant odors in the bathroom that made their way between the top of the wax ring and the underneath of the toilet.
When we saw this new Danco product, we decided to give it a try and it is simply brilliant. Very easy to use and so much cleaner than a traditional wax ring. Best of all, it sealed the toilet base to the drain properly with no leaks, and most importantly, no sewer odors!
The Perfect Seal comprises two parts - a lower grey rubber seal that is 1 3/4" in height and a blue rubber seal that can be optionally used to increase the seal height to 2 1/2" in height. Both these measurements are 'uncompressed' height before the toilet is placed onto the seal (more below).
The instructions that come with the product are simple and easy to follow. Danco recommends using the additional blue seal if the drain is recessed into the floor below the level of the tile (as was the case with our installation).
Installation is simple enough. Remove the toilet, scrape the old wax ring off with a scraper and throw it away and clean the top of the drain surface with a paper towel. The new seal is then placed over the mounting bolt threads. Another good design feature here is that of the four mounting bolt 'tabs' on the seal, two are drilled to accommodate precise bolt placement while the other two have elongated holes in case you have odd sized mounting bolts. We then dropped the old washers and mounting nuts and gently tightened them onto the top of the Perfect Seal.
All you have to do then is line up the toilet base with the mounting bolts and drop the toilet back on. Its a little strange at first since the rear of the toilet is initially about 1/2" - 1" off the tile, however with a little gentle downward pressure on the toilet, the Perfect Seal locates with the toilet base drain outlet and compresses onto the drain. When this compression takes place, the perfect seal is forced down onto the drain and a wax ring that is built into the bottom of the Perfect Seal then seals to the drain surface. It is worth mentioning that the design of the Perfect Seal also allows the toilet to be repositioned easily
without compromising the seal, so if you're slightly off center when reconnecting the toilet base, this doesn't damage the seal.
With this done, just tighten the bolts and the job is done. All in all about a 30 minute job from start to finish. Best of all, beside the job of removing the old wax ring, no more messy wax residue.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cymirk End of wax rings forever! HD says online only but i found mine in store
Had a troublesome wax ring mounting situation retrofitting an older toilet. Saw this in the HD aisle, gave it a shot, and it will now be the only thing I ever use for any toilet. Fit perfect in troublesome uneven old flange and works as advertised. No leaks at all. HD shows this as being an online only item, however I found it at my local HD while looking to replace another messed up wax ring. Brilliant find!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dago59 This is the BEST toilet product I have found to this date!
My bathroom floor was too high due to tile being installed and no matter what I did or how I did it. I could not properly seal the toilet to the floor. When I saw Perfect Seal, I was very skeptical but I had no choice and tried this product. I followed the easy instructions and have not had a leak to this day. the Prefect Seal made a prefect seal and I am very satisfied!
I would recommend this product to anyone especially if you have toilet seal problems.
