reusable toilet ring ?


the rubber boot type that glue to the bottom of the toilet.
are these any good ? any issues/precautions ?

i am going to reset my toilet in a new flange, and i may need to remove it in the future (possible flooring change or whatever).

i just hate dealing with the wax.

i did search, but threads where kinda old.

thanx

Most are squashed/ruined/full of bad stuff etc. Wear disposable gloves. To reshape old one is more work than removing it. If adding tile or thicker tile when doing new floor, get a thicker ring. Kind with plastic (rubber boot type) bottom that inserts into drainpipe works well.

I've used the Fenco waxless a couple of times.
I like them, have not had any problems with them.

The key is cleaning and drying the area around the horn before the install, so the adehesive takes very good hold.

I haven't used the retrofit ones, but I did put in a Toto in my house that uses the rubber boot. Since it was our only toilet in the house it was really nice to be able to quickly reinstall the toilet when needed and then pull it again to keep working there.
It's been in for years and no problems so far with it, knock on wood!

A wax ring is under a dollar and works fine. Why bother with somthing else?

Not quite. Try $6. The waxless rings are competitive in price, however.

Re: reusable toilet ring ?


Make sure that the bottom of your old toilet is squeaky clean so the adhesive will adhere.

No idea where you're getting ripped off.

Re: reusable toilet ring ?


That glue one dont work too good. If your going to use another product other then wax use a sani seal..

These are the best in terms of leak free like wax...

Wax seals are 1.50$. This is what I use. I dont use the wax seals with the plastic funnel built into it..Those are about 4 bucks..

I used soapy water on the outside of the rubber seal. I removed my toilet around 5 times while doing tile work and reset the toilet. Still using it to this day. 7 years or so.

Re: reusable toilet ring ?


I use Sani-seal rings. They are easier to install, reusable and seals well.
