In response to Re: TOILET - Better description of problem.

I felt I needed to explain this better than when I first wrote it. When we pulled the stool up, we found it broken on the bottom of the bowl. There is a "lip" that fits into the sewer drain that is broken off. It's not the entire piece, only a portion of it, maybe 1/8 - 1/4 of it. It's not cracked beyond the break. (part is actually gone) The plummer I had come said he felt that the stool needed replaced because he didn't know of any way to fix it. I thought perhaps I could use some caulk to build it back up a bit and then use two wax rings to secure it so the water will flow down the drain instead of out on the floor through the place where it is broken. I would really like to keep this tank and bowl combination. What do you more knowledgeable plummer people think?
