Toilet is not flush to floor


Funnel on the wax ring is not needed---Sounds like you have a 3 inch pipe--with a 3 inch inside glued flange----

Is the flange glued inside the pipe or outside?

Flange is inside the pipe.

I went out and bought a wax ring without a funnel. I also took a closer look at the toilet and pipe junction. I believe your solution (wax ring without funnel) will do the trick. anymore pointers before I proceed?
