IF you can get it to stick while you position the bowl then you can attach it first. Usually it is easier to set it on the flange and place the bowl on it. If you do not set the bowl properly the first time, you can still damage the wax ring doing it this way.

: hi .... this is a Great site!

: Question about instlling the Wax Gasket for a
: replacement toilet / Toto Ultimate.

: Is the Wax Seal supposed to be pressed onto the
: toilet's exit rim first and then *somehow* moved into
: position on top of the flange??? OR can I first put
: the wax seal onto the flange and then lower the
: toilet onto the waxseal/flange???

: I've just tried it myself with wax on toilet's exit
: rim first, but i think it fell off at the last_second
: of positioning .... it leaked during testing and when
: i removed the toilet i saw how the wax seal had
: probably come off and landed askew.

: Any hints???

: any info would be appreciated!!!
: (luckily i have another w.c. that's functional!!!!)
