here's the cropped picture
This is after 10 minutes, not knowing for certain if he placed the toilet down or not.
this was it ten minutes before
when he first set it down.
I am not certain what he did in there.
Once I asked if I could take a picture, you can see that he moved his arm in the way so that you could not see the whole region under the toilet. Whether or not that was deliberate, I do not know. It is a small bathroom so the second picture was taken when he went to his car. I am assuming he got another wax ring, but as I meant to say in the first posting, I am trying to NOT assume since I know so little about all of this.
I do not expect any of you to know what he did, I am simply hoping you may have information/ suggestions based upon the pictures. Cass, does it look like a heat source problem to you?
Also, I can tell you that the graying area has spread over 2 inches since his visit yesterday.
