Questions & Answers

Will this toilet seal work as a "replacement" for a wax ring seal that is now insalled?

Will this toilet seal work as a "replacement" for a wax ring seal that is now installed?
Asked by: Sonny
I would NOT use this as a replacement for a wax ring. The best replacement for a wax ring is a wax ring. This will eventually leak and cause water damage. I know this because I've used this product and have had two of this fail years later, which would have never happened if I just cleaned off the old wax and installed a new wax ring the first time. Save yourself time, money and energy and use a wax ring as a replacement.

The Description above implied the flange must be 3/4" BELOW the floor level. But, my closet flange is about 3/8" ABOVE the floor level. Do you think I can use this without reworking everything?

One word: "shims." Almost all toilet installations require some shimming -ofen even included in kits like this.

For added adhesion, would it help to apply a thin bead of caulk around the outside edge of the fernco where it fits onto the horn? Thanks, Steve
Asked by: SteveB
No. By adding A LOT of caulking under the toilet may help but you are doing a lot more work than simply just using a wax ring. With wax, you are filling the space that is not covered by these wax free seals and they will eventually leak. Also, do not caulk around the outside of your toilet. Although this helps with the stability of the toilet, you won't be able to see if it starts to leak and you will end up with major water damage. Hope this helps. Good luck!

3 in. PVC Wax Free Toilet Seal is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from For New Commode Installation: Easy install, removeable/re-installable, and seals out sewer gases! As someone who prefers simplicity, installing this 3 inch seal was so simple for my new TOTO Drakes. The instructions are straightforward. The glue on the seal is very strong and once the seal is attached to the horn, there's no removing it easily. On the first install, I measured and placed the seal to the horn, but on the second install, I eyeballed it and centered the seal around the horn. On the first install, I applied some liquid soap on the outside of the seal, and on the second I poured soap down the sides of the receiving pipe. Both commodes seated easily onto the flange bolts*, and I was able to adjust the commodes so that each was evenly spaced from the wall and level. Try that with a wax ring and seal damage is likely. I would recommend these Wax Free seals for new commode installations. Installation on older commodes is possible however, the horn area would require extensive cleaning and removal of all wax residues to insure secure adhesion. *Everbilt Brass 5/16 in. x 2-1/4 in. flange bolts sold at Home Depot

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wax free seal Item is an alternative to the commonly used wax "Johnny Ring" when installing a toilet. I had difficulty in that after pressing it into place on the bottom of the toilet (the "horn") lining up the toilet to push it down onto the flange (a bit difficult to do by yourself) resulted in the ring separating from the toilet and then kinking, ultimately causing a fairly good leak upon test flushing. I removed it, threw it out, and used the good old fashioned wax ring that came with the toilet as part of the installation kit. Item was not costly, but I found it difficult to work with. Further reviews of this product revealed that many plumbers do not like it either, for the same reasons cited here, and also it narrows the available space for solid materials to pass thru upon flushing (the waste pipe in my case is 3 inches). Save yourself some aggravation, go with the old tried and true wax Johnny ring

Nice tight seal and no real way for it to leak like an old wax seal could. Second time using on a another toilet.
