I replaced a regular toilet with a pressure assist unit in my step-mother's apt. a couple of years ago. She is 95 and tends to use waaaaay too much toilet paper. It flushes great and there has never been a clog or stoppage. There HAS been water seepage under the toilet, however. I have replaced the wax ring twice, once with the thicker ring, but the seepage continued. I recently pulled the toilet again, and sure enough, the wax ring had blown out enough to cause a leak. This time, I noticed that the flange was too low (don't know why I didn't focus on that sooner). The top of the flange was even with the finished floor instead of the bottom of the flange being even with the finished floor. I installed a 1/4 in spacer to get the flange at the right height. That was yesterday. Time will tell if this fixes the problem. Any thoughts on this?
