The Great Toilet Flange Mystery Solved!
Posted by JM on April 26, 2002 at 20:21:57:
I looked all around the internet to find out the proper level. I've seen every level recommended. Flush with the floor, a little higher than the floor, and a little recessed into the floor. After examing underneath the toilet where the part mates with the flange, I saw that the part is flush with the rest of the toilet body. So, if the flange was a little higher off the floor it could be unsteady and rock and break the wax seal. Even if the flange was flush it might rock in the future. I agree with Terry Love's advice that a little recessed with two wax rings is the way to go. Thanks for the great site Terry.
