different size wax rings?
i'm noticing the grout nearest my toilet is starting to discolor from the toilet base moving outward. Me thinks i have a very small leak where the toilet connects to the flange (or whatever the big circle thing is called). and its seeping under my tile.

I think draining the toilet and pulling it up to check is simple enough. I did notice in the Depot that there are different size wax rings? how do i know which one to use? FYI the toilet and plumbing is only 4 years old.

Any other suggestions i should look for after i remove the toilet?

I have never noticed different sized bees wax rings. I will have to look next time I am at the HD. What I have noticed is that some are just beeswax and some are beeswax attached to some type of plastic flange to help them seal better.
