Down Adapter Ring

Down Adapter Ring
Replacing the wax ring closure on a toilet?

There are some old toilets in the church that leak around the base when flushed. I plan to replace the wax ring seals, but have never done before. The retaining screws are rusted Down, of course, so I soaked in penetrating oil but I have yet to break fear. Should be replaced anyway. Are they replaceable? Is there another part that I need other than the label? Is there some kind of adapter between the pipe and the toilet drain?

It is a complicated job, but can be messy. First you must cut the water supply. Then rinse and hold the handle down until the water stops flowing out of the tank. Get some rubber gloves, a bucket and a large sponge. Use the sponge to absorb water in the container reamining and tank. Then disconnect the water supply. Remove the mounting bolts and lift the toilet. Now the really unpleasant. Scrape all the old wax from the bottom of the cup bath and drain flange. The flange should have slots in the sides where the bolts go, and should be flush with the floor. If you need more parts. If the flange is cracked, need to be replaced. You can buy new wax ring with new bolts included. I got the ring again directly on the flange. Then put the flange screws to stand up straight. The hard part is getting the new toilet. Try to line all the bolts come through the base of the cup bath and start to compress the wax in a single shot. If you mangle the wax to change things much at all going to fail. Once you come through bolts keep pushing down on the toilet with a gentle rocking motion. Once it feels firm, sit on it. Be careful adjustment nuts. If you are over tightening may break the toilet base. Let adjusted, tighten after it is resolved. Reconnect the water supply, turn the tap and give it a test color. If you do not pass already. I suggest to take one apart before shopping to see what you need. If you have a bad flange, it is likely that others will too. Just keep the receipts. You may return Additional pieces easily. Good luck.
