toilet base sealing
Posted by snifferdog on December 17, 2003 at 22:30:44:
What is the scoop on sealing the base of the toilet where it meets the floor (visible to the eye)? I have been told to use caulk, tile grout, and the wax ring package says to use plumbers putty???

I am replacing the a wax ring on a toilet that leaked. I have a porcelain tile floor. Prior to this I did nothing to the base of the toilet. If I had sealed the base, I would have never known that I had a leak, it came from under the base of the toilet.

If I should use one of those materials, I think it would be best to wait a few weeks to make sure I have the leak resolved.
