Toilet Wax Ring or Perfect Seal?
A toilet seal is the key to preventing leaks around the base of the toilet. Traditional wax toilet seals are widely used, but they can be messy and difficult to install. The Perfect Seal Toilet Wax Ring offers a mess-free experience when it comes to toilet installation, but which is the better option for you? We break it down for you here.
Toilet Wax Ring
Toilet seal wax ring or tank-to-bowl gasket, is a toilet repair part that forms a seal between the flange and the toilet. Traditionally, these seals are composed of a ring of wax. The ring is placed at the base of the toilet or on top of the flange.
Although traditionally Toilet Wax Rings have been widely used due low cost, they are messier and outdated. Traditional wax rings may get the job done, but they’re difficult to work with. Additionally, a wax seal requires the toilet to be placed directly over the flange making repositioning difficult. While wax rings are designed to last for years, toilets shift slightly over time. This makes them more likely to rock or sway when utilized.
Overtime, the wax seal can break allowing bacteria and mold to grow, or even leak wastewater, leading to replacing the wax seal completely which is an even messier job to remove old wax and replace it with a new one.
Perfect Seal Wax Ring
The Perfect Seal is a mess-free and more simple alternative to a standard wax ring. This Wax free toilet seal is designed to accommodate any drain size and flange depth! The patented seal design combines rubber gaskets with specially designed rubber gaskets with encapsulated wax to form a seal that is three times stronger than a wax ring without the mess!
Unlike wax rings, the Perfect Seal stabilizes toilet bolts, which allows the toilet to be repositioned as needed. Designed to accommodate flange heights from 1/2 in. above the floor to 1-1/2 in. below the floor and maintains a tight seal when common toilet and floor movement occurs.
Depending upon the height of the floor flange and the toilet horn, there may be instances when the toilet may not sit flush to the floor. In these situations, the black plastic ring that is inside the gray rubber casing of the Perfect Seal can be removed. The removal of this hard plastic ring will allow the Perfect Seal to be fully compressed and the toilet should then sit flush with the floor.
