use a double thickness wax ring and caulk around the edge of the toilet

: We recently had a new ceramic floor put in our bathroom. Ever since, we've noticed the grout lines showing signs of water coming from under the toilet. We have tried several things to fix the problem. We even had the drainage pipe replaced and the flange raised even with the floor. That didn't work and so we went to the company that sold us the toilet, thinking it was the toilet. We got another toilet to try. This toilet is even worse. The second time I used it, it started to rock. Our plumber is now saying that one of our tiles has a hump in it. However, our old toilet never rocked in the year we had it. He is also thinking that the stack is too far from the toilet. When we tipped our old toilet over we noticed that the outer edge is flat on one side and sloped on the other. There seems to be some unevenness on the underside. I'm wondering if this could be our problem. Any suggestions?
