In response to Re: damp grout around new toilet
: : :When you have removed the toilet to put in the new wax, did you see obvious signs of leakage under the toilet?

: : If not, we are back to the delicate question plumbers sometimes have to ask: Is there a young lad or an elderly gentleman using tthe toilet, who may have trouble with their aim?

: I agree that some men from states other than Kansas need to step up closer to the toilet.
: If I use hard tile grout at the bottom of the toilet then I sometimes get darkening that I have felt comes from condensation. When I use or replace with caulk I do not. I'm not 100% on not using grout, since I see others on this site are using it, but it's a generally accepted conclusion to plumbers in my area. LonnythePlumber


Yes, we have the young (and not so young!)lads with the imperfect aims, however the
area around the damp grout lines never shows any other "evidence". (The "aim" issue
was actually my FIRST thought and I gave several lectures on the topic!) There was
no evidence of any water damage when we removed the original toilet.
