Stabilizing a rocking toilet
Posted by Max on October 10, 2002 at 03:45:00:

Just had a toilet installed in a newly-remodeled bath on newly-laid tile. We settled on the Toto Carolina, it works great. However, this model has the skirt that hides the trap and a rather large footprint as a result. The toilet rocks forward when weight is applied, when you sit on it. It rocks back when weight is removed. It may be because the floor is not perfectly level -- there does seem to be a bit of a gap between the front of the toilet and the floor. Question--what's a good way to fill the gap? Wood shims? Rubber material of some kind? Silicone caulk? Is there a product for this application or is it something I'll just need to figure out by trial and error?
