: : I don't know any good plumber who would "add" a new wax to an old one. A wax ring is pretty much destroyed by removing the toilet; all old wax should be cleaned up and new rings used.

An experienced professional can evaluate your situation; if the flange is low, 2 rings can be used, or spacers can be added; an advantage of the "waxless" is that they will seal on a flange that is not level. Regular wax can have problems with that. If the toilet is rocking, that can cause wax to fail. Get shims in there.

This is really not rocket science; maybe you need a new plumber.
