In response to Re: Uneven toilet flange creating a leaky toilet
: The toilet flange in my house is not level. It is off level about 3/8 to 1/2 of an inch.
: WHen I put in a new wax ring I believe the toilet bottoms out on the one side and then
: basically mount uneven, pivoting around the high side of the flange. Within days the toilet starts to leak again.
: WHat can I do?

try using two wax rings, one with the plastic funnel and just a plain one on top. when you set the stool, set it level, you will need to shim some. home centers usually have small bags of plastic shims. grout the gap between the stool and floor with patching cement, paint to suit. i wouldn't use a product that had a high plaster content (like rock-tite)
