Rear Outlet Toilet Installation


I just bought a house and decided to remodel the bathroom. There is a Crane floor mounted wall outlet toilet that we removed and who ever installed the toilet used a wax ring. I know it was leaking because the floor was wet and had a very strong odor. I found a neoprene gasket from a local plumbing supply store that cost only $3.50 (most everyone I talked to said to use a neoprene seal compared to a wax one on the rear outlet toilets). I asked if they came in different sizes and he told me no. I also asked if I needed any glue for it and said no...just use a little silicone. I removed all the old wax and installed the new gasket. It appeared to be working fine but after a few days I noticed a cracked tile next to my toilet and that every time I flushed water would come up through the tile crack. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to install these toilets? The previous owner had leaks and now I have leaks. I have read so many different posts and articles but am no closer to solving my problem. Please Help!

i'd pull the toilet, replace the tile, reinstall toilet with wax ring, and carefully bolt it back on, not overtightening.

okay....I'll give that a try. At this point I'm willing to try anything. I'll post my results when I finish the job.

Also make sure that the toilet sets good and solid on the floor and can't rock. Then be sure the piping where it butts up to is solid and can't shift.

I actually just noticed that the pipe that the toilet drains into does shift around and wobbly when I push on it a little. Is that normal? When I tighten down the wall bolts, won't the pipe start to get pulled towards the toilet?
