With bath remodels, especialy on older homes, it's not unusual for the new tile floor to be above the closet ring (flange). This can cause an issue with less than the best seal between the toilet drain and the closet ring resulting in leaks at the base of the toilet. Whether a new install or re-seating of a toilet, I only use these extra thick reinforced wax rings. They provide the extra wax needed to bridge the gap between toilet and closet ring. With included flange bolts, a proper installation with a good. no-leak seal is ensured. The only thing I would suggest is using 2 of the old flange nuts and washers to "lock" the new flange bolt onto the closet ring by adding the bolt above the closet ring and tightening it against the top of the closet ring. (see drawing). This helps maintain the flange bolt tightness so if and when it needs to be removed, it won't just "spin" while loosening the toilet hold down nuts. *** One more note *** I NEVER use sealant to seal or "hold" the toilet to the floor. What this can do is hide any leaks in the wax seal. If there is a hidden leak for an extended time, the water damage caused in the floor or substructure can be very expensive to repair...
This product is a much better alternative to the smaller less expensive products.
The Extra thick Reinforced toilet bowl ring is only $1 or $2.00 more than the other models but the possibility of not working the first time is very unlikely. The extra bolts and flange make this product easy to install and provides a nice tight, secure fit.
Replaced a voltage detector I had missed placed. The new one is a much better voltage detector. I would recommend this one.
The Milwaukee voltage detectors is easy to use.
No adjustments are required when using. Detector lights up when turned on and has built in light that helps when using in recessed areas. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
