    Default waxless seal for Toto Soiree

    Is there an alternative to a wax ring for the Soiree (with pvc outlet connection)?
    I need to move the flange and when I do, it will be too close to radiant floor heat and would melt a wax ring.

    I was thinking about silicone?

    The Fluidmaster waxsless seal works on the Unifit.
    Just make sure you don't follow directions.

    Push the Fluidmaster funnel onto the Unifit, and then install the Unift to the floor flange.

    That link shows all of the Fluidmaster replacment bits, but yes, the waxless seal will work, I have several on my toilets. You can get them at HD. You need to ensure that the pipe inside is clean and smooth since the seal is made by a big, soft, rubber o-ring - the walls must be clean to get a good seal. On PVC or ABS, it's not a problem, but could be with an older cast iron pipe.

    The Sani Seal is a new waxless toilet seal.

    We have come a long way since 2010.

    The Sani Seal is THE solution to the wax seal problem. Unlike other waxless seals, the Sani Seal Toilet Gasket is familiar and logical.

    We designed the shape and material of the Sani Seal so that one single gasket will work with nearly all toilet to flange applications. Firstly, it works with every single flange, even cast iron. The material remains flexible so that it may conform to uneven floors. It works on flanges that are 3/8" above or 3/8" below the finished floor. It is incredibly easy to stack for deeper flanges. With wax one has to mold two wax rings together and bring the toilet straight down, so that the toilet does not come down at an angle and cause the double wax rings to break their shape and collapse inward.

    It is extremely EASY to install and made of flexible, durable material and coated with a medical-grade, water-proof material that are guaranteed to last.

    It's designed to hold the bolts up and stay in place making it extremely easy to set the toilet. If you forget something you can pull the toilet back up and reset it on the same Sani Seal.

    Sani Seal Toilet Gasket is MADE IN USA.

    Mr. Saniseal has violated the posting rules for this forum. This is not to judge the product he is selling, I have no information on it. The Fluidmaster is a proven product. The Saniseal may or may not be an improvement. Just remember this guy is selling them.

    Gary,
    I'm letting this one go. I would like to see a few of these in person and use a few to see how they work.
    If they want to send me some, that would be nice.
    Terry

    Update, I bought some and have been using them on two bathrooms in my home. They seem to work fine.

    I am interested in hearing more about the new gasket myself.

    For completeness of this thread, would remind folks that Fernco also makes a waxless seal. I used 2 of them in my house and so far so good. I like the fact that it has molded-in "barbs" instead of using a separate rubber o-ring. One piece. Simple.

    Gary, you are right, Fluidmaster is proven and we like Fluidmaster. We just believe we have a toilet bowl to flange gasket that is waxless but works like wax, which is ideal because toilets and the flanges they bolt to are made around that idea; and also in so many ways our gasket works much better than wax. I don't mean to spam and didn't try to deceive people and pretend I'm not with Sani Seal. I took a risk replying to the post in such a way, but I feel all that information is necessary for someone to quickly understand what Sani Seal is. I'm the web developer at Sani Seal, I'm really not here to sell, but to inform and create "buzz".

    Terry, I appreciate you allowing this discussion, I would be happy to send you some.

    So Terry,
    Where would you use your first Saniseal?
    Would you try it on a customer's house, or would you try it at your own home? I know you install different toilets at your house to give them first-hand knowledge - is this a place where you would do the same thing with a new technology?

    It would be my home so I can see the long term affect.
    Besides, I move things around here and not dealing with wax for that is always nice. Mine are like musical chairs.

    Sounds like fun!

    You could have a "toilet of the week" sort of theme. Or a "throne for the day".

    Unless it's a real dog, it take more than a day to evaluate a toilet. Unfortuneately, some of the testing agencies only get that one-day result. One reason I like this site - long-term test results from more than one source.

    Good point, Jim.

    Sort of like testing out a car - it's one thing to look under the hood, it's another to spend a few weeks in the driver's seat...
