Do I need seal junction between old toilet flange and plastic extension ring?

Hi,

Last year I remodeled my second bathroom. After I put new floor I found that toilet flange and floor tiles were on the same level. I went to Home Depot and per HD employee recommendation purchased and installed a small plastic toilet flange extension ring.

Currently, I am remodeling my master bathroom and ran into same problem. I went to HD and purchased an extension ring.
My question is:
Do I need somehow seal junction between old flange and plastic extension?


Thanks

Yep----use silicone if the old flange is clean or plumbers putty if it is not---Packing the flange joint,before installing the toilet, with some wax from a spare ring will also work.---Mike---

Mike,

Thanks a lot. The old flange is very dirty. I tried to clean it, but it did not work very well. So, I'll use plumbers putty. Or, I have couple of spare wax rings and I may use wax from one of them instead of plumbers putty as well.
