Toilet One Bubble Off
Posted by Carl on March 19, 2004 at 13:31:45:
Had a plumber out to reseat bowl because of possible leak. The bowl is held down by studs threaded into the wood floor. One stud wouldn't hold any wood so the plumber tightened down one side only which resulted in the front of the bowl raised up and one bubble off on the level from side to side. I was able to get the loose stud anchored into wood. Can I loosen up the stud which is causing the bowl to sit up in front which would cause the rear to raise and the front to come down and still maintain the wax seal or does new wax have to be installed. The plumber does not want to pull the toilet again unless I let him install a new flange for about $300 and he claims if it doesn't leak there is nothing to worry about.
