    Default Flies from Bottom of Toilet...

    Hi there,

    I am seeing a strange problem after I installed Fluidmaster Wax Free Toilet Bowl Gasket instead of the regular toilet bowel wax ring for both of my toilets.

    I see flies coming out from the bottom of both toilets.

    There is a current leak from the bottom of the tub drain, so perhaps there's a water source to feed the flies, but I wonder how they could come in thru' the bottom of the toilets.

    Is it possible the Fluidmaster Wax Free Toilet Bowl Gasket doesn't seal up well enough along the drain so flies can come in?

    I wonder if anyone has seen problem like this w/ this Fluidmaster wax-free gasket, or it's just perhaps some other gap I'm missing to see.

    Thanks.
