In response to Re: Bent flange on a leaky toilet
Are you really sure the problem is the flange. At this point, given what you have done so far, I would be looking for a defect in the toilet. The flange will eventually be a problem, but as long as the wax seal is compressed by the toilet, there should be no leaks at this time.

: I have a leaky toilet that I have unsuccessfuly tried to fix 3 times. The toilet itself seems fine (no cracks) and the pipe doesn't seem to have any cracks.

: However, the flange on the pipe (the ring where the bolts connect) is bent up slightly at both places where the bolts were.

: I have replaced the wax ring 3 times and I am still getting a leak. Should I double up on the wax rings or try one of those new No-Wax seals.

: Both of these options were offered in the past when the flange was below the floor but I do not know if anyone has had a problem with the flange bending up above the floor.
