|In response to Re: toilet base sealing|
Tile grout makes the "cleanest: seal, but does not secure the toilet in position. Caulk seals secures the toilet but it can get into the tile joints and cause a bit of discoloration.
: What is the scoop on sealing the base of the toilet where it meets the floor (visible to the eye)? I have been told to use caulk, tile grout, and the wax ring package says to use plumbers putty???
: I am replacing the a wax ring on a toilet that leaked. I have a porcelain tile floor. Prior to this I did nothing to the base of the toilet. If I had sealed the base, I would have never known that I had a leak, it came from under the base of the toilet.
: If I should use one of those materials, I think it would be best to wait a few weeks to make sure I have the leak resolved.
