    Does the brand of wax ring matter? I noticed Terry shows the Joni-Ring Hercules brand wax ring, but I can only find the BOL Number 1 ring in the ridged-plastic container. Is that any good? Thanks.

    Use what is available in your area...a wax ring is a wax ring. The only exception might be, avoid those that have a plastic funnel embedded in them. While they can work, they can also easily make things worse, and a wax ring without one works fine! If you have a bad seal and a backup, it will leak regardless.
