In response to Re: wax ring failure caused by excessive use of plunger
IF the problem is one that can be cured with a plunger then it is in the toilet and that does not put any pressure on the wax ring seal. If it does put pressure on the seal, then the problem is in the sewer system and the plunger will not help anyway, and should also not damage the seal with the small amount of force you can apply.

: My friend just had some work done and the plumber told her that using a plunger could "blow out" the wax ring. They have to use the plunger more than normal (another issue entirely). Was the plumber correct? It's just a normal everyday plunger.
