No flange on concrete


Replaced vinyl tile with ceramic, in a bathroom on a slab. Also replaced toilet, when taking off old toilet there were bolts in the concrete and no flange.
I installed a new toilet with wax ring, and no flange, and it is now leaking at the bottom. Do I need to install a flange to bring the pipe to the level of the ceramic, or can I just use two wax rings.


Thank you ,

Is the pipe solid and not moving around? Is the toilet solid and not moving around/wiggling?
If so then 2 wax rings)or I would recommend the extra thick instead) or better yet a renovation wax ring which has a plastic extension or 'bell' may work.

Use one no seep wax ring and one all wax ring. Place the no seep directly under the toilet with the all wax ring below it.

Here we can get a no seep in a thicker wax ring, then do not need two wax rings

It is very important that the flange not support the toilet otherwise the toilet could get cracked. The toilet should be supported by the floor only.

To make sure the flange does not support the toilet, particularly if the floor should settle or not be absolutely solid, the flange should not touch the underside of the toilet.
