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.

#1. Use a reinforced wax ring with flange collar. The collar helps to ensure the fluids stay directed into the sewer line. The reinforced wax ring will crush some and will allow for a even level mount of the toilet. #2. Remove the spacer, it can cause leaks due to not sealing to connection points. #3. Do not attach the HydroCap to the toilet. Place it on top of the reinforced wax ring. As you place your toilet over the sewer line and move it to align for fit to bolts, it allows some free movement of the toilet. Do not put weight on the toilet and allow the was seals to crush without using the mounting bolts to pull the toilet down to a secure fit with floor. Hope this helps.

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
You can use the Reinforced Was ring with flange. It helps direct drainage flow. Yes, the HydraCap flange will fit into the flange of the wax ring, I've used this to fit a toilet to an uneven floor and an uneven toilet mount flange and they both worked great.

Hydrocap fit

My toilet flange is flush with my floor if I use the Hydrocap will my toilet fit level with the floor?
Asked by: Jack
it will fit level with the floor, but not at current floor height. The space between the bottom of the molded toilet drain will need some filler, and that is what this hydracap does, it helps fill some gap, plus allows the toilet to be slightly moved to get alignment correct. The Black seal is flexible, and sets higher than the white plastic rim, so it allows some flexibility to the seal between toilet and Hydracap and toilet flange.

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.

HydroCap Sure Seat Wax Ring Cap is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 68.
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.

It allowed me to place this wax ring in place, along with an extra reinforced wax ring, to help prevent a sewer line leak due to an uneven sewer line flange. This Hydro cap seat allows the toilet to be placed on top of it and does not let it stick to the wax as it allows movement of the toilet just enough to align the toilet with the bolts to hold it to the sewer line. The polymer plate allows for some movement, while the black rubber gasket ensures a tight water leak proof fitting between the sewer flange and the toilet. Thanks Home Depot (N.W. Expressway, OKC) for hiring product sales staff whom use these products and provide feedback to customers on products that work well and others that don't work as well for certain plumbing issues.

The only negative was that I had planned on using the existing bolts, but the diameter was a bit too large for the plastic stabilizers. Had to replace with what I assume are now "standard" diameter, but no big deal. Had some questions about which Danco product would actually best suit my application, and the company was quick in their responses, and very helpful.

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!

The design of the new, modern toilet, along with the thick tile floor did not provide enough compression. Using the HydroCap on a new wax ring did the trick! I will use this product from now on when installing a toilet to insure it is leak free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! This is definitely the way to go! It is simple and mess free, and you do not have to replace the wax seal each time you take the commode off. You will be pleasantly surprised of what a good product it is.
