What are the Pros and COns of Using the Wax Free Gasket versus the ordinary Wax Gasket on Toilet?
Are there situation where you can't use Wax Free gasket?
Sometimes the Better Than Wax is not the right sizing.

I'm going to come up with a fix to all of this. It'll be on youtube soon enough. We as a world of technology can certainly do better than this traditional design of connecting a water closet to a plumbing system.
It's long overdue.
Fine folks, I'd like to bump this thread and ask about something somewhat separate in regards to the regular wax ring vs. "wax free ring" debate. I was just watching DIY Network and they were instructing on installing tile floors that have radiant heat wires within the flooring ( btwn the tile backer board and the tile). It just so happens that they were using the same system I recently installed in my tile floors (Suntouch).
One thing they mentioned is it is important to use the "wax-free ring systems" (they happened to show the Fluidmaster version) with heated flooring to prevent the heat from the floor melting the regular wax rings. I had never heard that before and would like to get some advice about this from the experts.
Right now my upstairs toilet is installed with an extra thick regular wax ring with rubber flange reinforcement (to compensate for the thickness of the tile floor vs. the laminate floor that was there previously) and my downstairs toilet is yet to be installed. I was just getting ready to install the downstairs toilet when I saw this show on DIY. Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
This is awkward, but...
