toilet bolt loose


Hi,
toilet is 10 years old. No issue - no rocking, no moving. Today, i noticed bolt on one side was very loose. So i tightened it up.

Would a loose bolt suggest wax ring might require replacement ?

Re: toilet bolt loose


If it's not leaking, no need to assume it is going to. Snug the bolt(s) and call it good.

A visual inspection from the bottom side would be a plus if possible.
