In response to Re: Waxless Toilet Seal
Recheck for a leak at the back of the toilet from the tank. Retightening the bolts seldom cures a leak from the tank connection.

: When the plumber pulled the toilet the first time he said the wax was good but added the leak must be from the tank which was loose. He tightened the tank and added a ring of wax to the old wax. I had him come back because the front of the toilet needed shims. Now I still have a leak after flushing that appears by the grout line of the floor tile. What should I do now?

: : Are you sure that is where the leak is? Even though the connection is not "proper" it should seal.

: : : Is the Fluidmaster seal a better solution to use over a ceramic tile than wax rings. I had the same plumber out twice and still have seepage through the wax he added to the old wax. The toilet is held down with two brass wood screw/machine screw studs through the flange. Flange bolts were not used because the plumber said the flange is damaged but it should hold.
