    The flange is not on top of the floor but is flush with the floor since the tile was tiled around it.

    Wax Rings Are Too Small or Too Big

    When the toilet flange is flush with the floor it seems that 2 wax rings might be too much and 1 ring might be too little. Which would be the better solution? Also, are 2 standard wax rings the...

    Drake II Tank to Toilet Gasket

    Just got part number 9bu004e which is a Drake tank to bowl gasket. It doesn't look anything like the one on my Drake II. Did they change the gasket from first generation Drake to Drake II? Will it...

    I wound up using a hammer and screwdriver and pulled out enough wood for it to set on the concrete. Since we plan on replacing the floor anyway, I didn't need to do it carefully. However its ugly...

    Ultramax II base is longer and narrower than the one it replaces. Fake wood was installed around the toilet so that the toilet sits on the concrete inside of the flooring. The front edge of the base...

    Old Wax

    Unused toilet wax been baking out in my hot Dallas garage for 2 summers now (and 2 winters but our winters are pretty lame). Is it OK to use?

    How much can a bowl be shimmed after its been installed and secured without breaking the wax seal? It's been installed for 2 years now. Between cheating the bowl and tank angle forward a hair I think...

    Thanks for the info about the kleenex on the toilet tank top. That anti slip material works well on many things.

    I can't believe I'm so excited about getting a new toilet! I'm replacing a 1995...

    I just ordered an Ultramax II. Can someone tell me if the slope of the tank lid prevents a box of kleenex resting there?

    Took the tank off and put a level across the elevated ring that the tank sits on and its very unlevel, yet the bowl is almost dead level. Is it possible I have an imperfection? I put a couple of...

    I have not heard of a toilet causing condensation. The only thing I can think that would cause this is the toilet sitting in a high humidty room. The hole is put...

    It's an honest 12. Time to put a level on the tank to see if it or the bowl might be tilted back a bit. Could I get away with putting some rubber shims under the rear of the tank to tilt it forward?

    I called Toto and you are correct about the redesigned tank lid to accommodate the washlet flush device. He said all the lids now have that air gap and the only way I could get one without the gap is...

    Drake II Chip....Anything to Worry About?

    Just unpacked a Drake II. Noticed that the drain hole (correct terminology?) on the underside of the bowl is out of round, slightly unlevel and has a tiny chip around the rim. Is this within normal...
