loose toilet


I've noticed the toilet in our new house rocks from front to back a little. The floor is a concrete slab with vinyl flooring. It appears the weight of the toilet and person is being supported by the flange(stub-out). It's not off by much, but I'm afraid it will eventually break. Is there something I can use to ensure the weight is supported by the floor? Epoxy or....?

I'm no pro, but I had a similar problem and was told to use shims. I just shimmed up the toilet with some plastic shims until it was flat and stable and caulked around the gap to make it pretty.

Thanks Steve. I figure it's easier to avoid a problem now than fix it later.
