    I just finished in one bathroom installing a DXV toilet had tried to use a wax seal with flange won't fit so put a 1 inch wax seal with no flange and work . Went to do second bathroom toilet and when I open the box for the TOTO got a surprise Never saw a rough-in kit.now I have problems the wax seal is 1 inch and I have about 1/4 inch space for the seal. The front of the rough in does not touch the ground so the back is angled down about a 1/4 of a inch What to do I think of returning before I drill 6 holes in the ceramic for the brackets. There are pictures of my problem.
    Thanks all

    If you get the adapter centered over the toilet flange, when you press it down into the wax, the wax should conform and make a seal. This time of year, you don't want to be taking it out of a cold car and trying it, as the wax will be very hard, but at normal room temperature, it should work.

    That top view photo of your Ipex 027582 closet flange looks a bit restricted. Is the hole a full 3 inches ID, or maybe is a piece of some old wax ring horn or something making the hole smaller? Is that where the interference happens? If you don't know where the interference happens, you could put a rope-like piece of wax, or some such, across the potential interference spots and press the adapter down. You can lop off a piece of wax, and roll it into a rope shape.

    Then cut away the obstruction. Your pipe may be extending too high, or there may be that old residual piece that can be removed.

    Your title says Toto Aquia and the text says dvx. I have not used either.
