I am about to install the toilet, couple questions:
The tile was installed close to level, the toilet needs 1/8" shim at the rear to level it front to back. When I do this it's rock solid front to back and side to side. The toilet is out of level side to side by 1/8". Is it really necessary to shim the side to a perfect level? I was thinking it would be more stable to have more of the toilet bowl contacting the floor and having it 1/8" out of level than it would be to have it resting on two shim to achieve a perfect level?
Also, I will need two was rings as the flange is about 3/4" below the tile, I planned on placing a thick ring with the plastic flange in in on to the toilet flang and a reg wax ring on the bottom of the bowl and then seating the bowl.
Anything wrong with my execution
