Customer Questions & Answers

Will the Fluidmaster better than wax universal toilet seal work for a American Standard Toilet?

Asked by: Sonnie
depends if your flange is above or below the floor. Would not fit on mine because its above the floor and it don't fit rite with out the spacer. stick with the wax

Why won't my toilet sit tightly against the floor after replacing my wax ring with the fluid master.

Should we of not used the spacer that came with it?
Asked by: Bh
If the toilet is not nicely sitting against the floor using light to moderate pressure, you don't need the plastic/foam spacer. I had a situation where my floor was nice and level, but the waste flange (1963 construction in California, so the house has been through a couple minor earthquakes in the area) was .26" below the tile on one side and .36" below on the other. Not enough to easily warrant using the black spacer, but a bit too much for just the blue seal. It seemed like two nested blue rings would compress nicely. I called Fluidmaster customer service and got in touch with no wait and the representative verified that would be the best set-up. I bought a second seal kit (~$8.57, great insurance policy) and used the two softer blue seals that have a deep reach down the waste pipe and a perfect fit around the spud and against the bottom of my Mansfield 1.6L toilet. Nice and fast, no mess, and I was able to set it without help.

Do u have to use the spacer when the flange is at floor level??

The toilet is too high off the ground when I use the spacer.
Asked by: Jen
No, do not use spacer AND do NOT read the directions !!! They clearly state in 5B, for flanges at floor level. use spacer. WRONG !!! This brings the toilet too high.

Where do I find an extra stackable seal?

I don't want to buy two.
Asked by: russcarver
If you need that much height, I think you're better off nest two of the blue rings. Better reach down into the drain and snug fit against the toilet spud. It's a great $8.50 insurance policy.

This worked for me but there are a few considerations before installing as this will raise your toilet about an 1/8". After reseating a rocking toilet twice due to seal failures, I decided to try this waxless ring. The problems I ran into... 1) My flange sits on the basement floor and is too elevated and this ring added to that elevation although I didn't use the spacer provided. 2) I had to heavily shim my toilet to keep it steady and flat on the flange. Overall it is a great product and was easy and clean to install but it will work better with flanges that are either flush or slightly below the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good! I have installed several wax rings over the years, and they do ok, however this new ring is an update to an old product. I was a little unsure if it would fit in my application, but it very clearly states will work with every toilet. Fluidmaster is the premier brand for these parts and home depots return policy is great, so i gave it a try. Works great, - breeze to install, the hardest thing about this installation was scraping all the old wax off flange. What a mess, but i may never have to do that again with these new seals. Easy, simple to install, and guaranteed for 10 years so cant go wrong.

I contemplated and research all of the old (100 year-old tech) and the newest, foamiest toilet-seal solutions. I am sure that the Fluidmaster solution will hold up for many years and took all of the guesswork out of knowing that I had a perfect, leak-free, smell-free seal. Nice and fast, no mess, and I was able to set it without help. You could easily feel that the spud on the bottom of the toilet was centered in the blue ring and it was mating as you set the toilet down and everything compressed together. I first helped my dad install a Fluidmaster Flusher-Fixer Kit around 40 years ago and this was the first new Fluidmaster product I've had to come across since and it's another winner.

Despite its claims, this product does not work for a flange depth that is slightly below floor level (1/4" in my case). Using the spacer as directed left the toilet wobbly and hovering over the floor level, even after fully tightening the bolts. Installing it without the spacer appeared fine, however it clearly did not form an airtight seal...flushing (be it this toilet or another in the house) yielded a loud hollow whooshing sound from the drain. I uninstalled the seal and replaced it with a standard wax ring and everything was fine. What a waste of time and money... what would have been a simple project turned into a very time-consuming one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for use when flange is above the floor Pro: The instructions and video were clear and easy to follow. Con: I bought this product today to replace a leaky wax seal in hopes that future repairs would be less messy. I carefully studied the instructional video provided and followed product instructions provided for replacing a seal when the flange is higher than the floor. Our toilet's flange is about 1/3" higher than the floor. There is no indication on the packaging that an above-floor flange is incompatible with this product. The package reads: "FITS ANY FLANGE Above floor Even with or Below Floor (works on uneven surfaces)". The product did not perform as described.

There are 3 scenarios for your situation: when flange in under the floor, even with the floor, or above the floor. The directions clearly state to use the black spacer for flanges at floor level - WRONG ! This brings the toilet way too high. ONLY use when flange is recessed below the floor. Otherwise, the product itself is OK. But, really, wax is the way to go.

Since it was on a tile floor, and I hadn't yet removed the toilet, I didn't know if the flange was on the tile, or on the sub-flooring, so I purchased this to cover either case. It turns out the flange was on the sub-flooring, so the height adapter was needed. This product worked well for the task, and the leak is fixed since we installed it a week ago.
