Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by innrgeek I'll never use wax seals again!!
Easy to install, worked the FIRST time (I blew out two wax seals prior to this one). NO leaks. Allows for some give without breaking the seal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great for low flange
If your flange is too low for a regular wax ring, this fluidmaster gasket is a great choice. It's also reusable - I had to take a toilet out that I had this gasket on to change flooring and I just popped the gasket back on and set the toilet back in place after the old flooring was removed and new flooring installed. The o-ring ensures a tight fit in the waste pipe so nothing comes back up. Probably the best product on the market for flanges that are too low for a regular wax ring. BTW, I've tried the wax ring with the extension built in - not as good as this product.
One additional benefit to this product is that there is no doubt about whether the gasket if "seated" properly. With the wax ring, you have to press and rock the toilet to ensure it is seated and compressed for a good seal.

Never had an issue installing this seal from the Toilet Base to the Floor Collar. 3" or 4" works on Cast Iron, copper, PVC.
During construction I could remove the toilet, do floor prep, re install toilet, and return days later to remove the toilet again for ceramic installation, even at a different elevation you can adjust the seal and reinstall the toilet. never having to replace this seal, if it was a wax ring which are only a one time installation. this is where engineering to todays living comes into play. wax ring was a great idea / engineering for its time in the early 1900's now we live in the 2014 and beyond.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrfixit great proven product
I am a contractor in the Seattle area. I have used these for over 10 years for clients. I have found they work in 98% of the applications. The system is perfectly engineered in my opinion. This product has two sealing surfaces, one on the horn of the toilet and one in the waste drain pipe. It also fits down into the waste drain farther than other products. Clean, easy to install and works very well. I use these most of the time and when they used to sell these in the store I used to convert people to these all the time when I explained how they work and how to install them. I now purchase from another dealer as HD no longer carries these in the stores I go to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drpreece Goodbye wax rings!
Used on a toilet replacement and it worked like a charm. I attached it on the bowl outlet (the rubber gasket is snug enough to hold it in place) and then I set the bowl on the closet flange. I had to pull it off once to realign the flange bolts and it went back together without issue. You cannot do that with a wax ring. The closet flange was also slightly recessed due to a tile floor and the original installation used a double wax ring to compensate - resulting in a partial blockage. No issue with this wax free gasket as the neck reaches several inches inside the closet flange. I will definitely use this in any future toilet installation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brett The reviews speak for themselves!
I saw my toilet was leaking in my basement so I went to by a wax ring. This would be my second one in 6 months. I went to HD to try to find a waxless one and saw this and wasn't sold on it by the looks so I bought a heavy duty wax ring for about the same price. Went home and installed it and the toilet leaked worse than before. The problem I have is the flange is 1/2 inch or so below the tile and the toilet ring is a little high. So I got on here and saw all the good reviews and bought it. 15 minutes later I had a working toilet. If it doesn't work for you then you didn't install it right. I would buy again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MrJoe Did not work in my application
Concept is appealing but I ran into a couple of problems: 1) the gasket did not fit well onto the horn of my toilet (AS Champion4) - could not press it on all the way, 2) plastic used for the funnel is a bit thin and it cracked, and 3) there was not enough space between the top of the flange and the lower surface of the toilet for the funnel to fit. My flange sits on top of the finished floor so this seal may work better if your flange is lower (e.g., top of flange is flush with the finished floor surface). I ended up using a single unreinforced wax ring and so far it is working well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alex Excellent Solution for an old problem
Installation was quick, no mess and i was able to adjust the toilet very easy without the usually mess related to the wax (and the usually scary thinking about the wax loosing the sealing). Also, i was able to take the toilet out several times (impossible using the same wax cartridge).
