Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigNerd042 Great alternative to wax
I just used one of these to install a new toilet in a home dating to the '70s. This seal was very easy to install and align and very forgiving of placement. Although more expensive than a traditional wax ring, I think it's completely worth it and will use this type of seal the next time I need to work on a toilet.
For future contractors/plumbers/homeowners, think of how much easier cleanup will be if this ever requires replacement. The worst part of toilet work is getting rid of the old gross wax seal - this prevents that completely.

I have always used the traditional wax rings but never again . No mess at all and use them just like any other only better the ring is soft and seals around the pipe and the base of the stool. You can avoid using any caulk around the bottom of the stool as these will not leak . No more dirty caulk no more removing the dirty caulk and re-caulking Love the green Ring

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Spiderman Toilet would not sit flush
Our house is 8 yrs old, plumbing flange is flush with tile, waxless seal would not compress allowing toilet to sit flush on tile adding frustrations to the job, the seal did not come with bolts pictured. I bought two seals and both missing hardware. 45 minutes later after returning to Homedepot with a traditional wax ring, job completed. Our second bathroom toilet I used wax seal. Job completed in 5 minutes.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RickB Will cause damage
After reading many positive reviews and recommendations I wanted to believe that this was an improvement over the old wax style ring. If you live in an older home this will not work. It is too thick and if you attempt to tighten the toilet bolts it will strip the threads or in some cases destroy the city flange and floor. If it does not compress down with just your body weight DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TIGHTEN THE TOILET BOLTS IT WILL CAUSE DAMAGE.

I recently purchased the SaniSeal marital aid. While the material is nice, the hole is just a bit too big.

Well I was a skeptic but I really like new technology and I absolutely hate wax rings. I installed it yesterday, tested the flush several times and no leaks. The flange was less than 3/8 inch below the new tile so I only needed one ring. I used the old flange bolts because they were in good shape and already lined up. If you do need to replace them, the kit comes with a new set.
You can always check out YouTube for detailed installation videos. If you've done the standard installation, you'll find this much easier and convenient. If you have never installed a toilet, You'll find this easy and convenient.

I was in a Home Depot several months ago looking for a wax ring to replace a toilet. The helpful plumbing associate showed me the Sani Seal Flexible Wax-Less Toilet Gasket, and explained how easy it makes installing a new toilet. I decided to try it out, and sure glad I did. It makes installing a toilet much easier and no more problems dealing with messy or cold wax rings. I have now installed four more toilets and will use nothing other than the Sani Seal Flexible Wax-Less Toilet Gasket.
To use the Sani Seal Flexible Toilet Gasket, simply install it over the flange and through the two bolts, then align the toilet over the flange and tighten the bolts. A single flexible gasket will work on flanges no more than 3/8 inches below the floor level. For flanges greater than 3/8 inches below the floor level, two flexible gaskets stacked together are required.
If you are a plumber or anyone replacing a toilet, do yourself a favor and get the Sani Seal Flexible Wax-Less Toilet Gasket. Highly Recommended!!

I really wanted to like this product!! I loved the idea of having something more reliable and repositionable than wax. It's a great design, but I was just not comfortable installing it in my application. When I placed the toilet on the sealed flange I had a heck of a time trying to get the toilet to compress down to the floor, even when putting most of my bodyweight on it. I definitely felt like I was overcompressing the seal, and I worried about having to put a dangerous amount of torque on the closet bolts. I ended up returning it and using a standard wax ring.
For the nerds: I have a PVC repair flange (Oatey 43539) mounted on my cast iron pipe. The new flange sits on top of the floor, so it sits a good 3/8" above the floor surface. Maybe slightly more. The toilet is a Kohler Elliston (Lowe's exclusive model) which some have said has a shallow pit for the wax ring and little space for expansion.
