: It's really hard to see from here but.
: Assuming it doesn't leak, put some plaster of paris or grout around the base where it meets the
: floor. Beware, that if you tighten the flange bolts too tight it my crack the toilet.

: : I had a new toilet installed, a few days later it was loose and wiggleing,
: : the plumber said the flange was broken and put a new flange .
: : Now I have the same problem again.
: : My old toilet never gave me a problem until it just cracked.
: : The new one has cost me$ 570 in plumbing repairs.
: : Any ideas regarding what is going wrong.

The big question, is the floor solid enough to secure a repair flange. If the repair flange can't be secured, then the toilet will have problems. There may be more damage to the floor itself. Terry
