George Ford: Hold up on the bolt then turn the but it will frighten for you but not too much to the foor

OLDMango Animations: That helped alot

George Ford: You can get a bigger wax ring if you like it came in all size

Maxitikos: Thank you for this instructional video. I installed a new wax ring on the bottom of my toilet. I it worked fine initially. After about a month I noticed about a tablespoon of water leaking from the bottom of the toilet bowl. This happened twice. At the hardware store they told me to buy a second wax ring and place it on top of the first one. My question is if it is a good idea to use two pieces of ring wax even after one has already been installed.

GrayF0x: They sell extra thick wax ring, get it.

MoPar7055: Can somebody explain how you magically tighten the bolts at the base of toilet without the bolts spinning? I mean there's nothing connecting or holding onto the head of the bolt so what it keeps it from just spinning?

kk donovan: Thank you very much for making this video it was a great help.

Little Goblin: I need some of this Toilet Wax to sculpt with.. i was told it was the secret ingredient i needed, combined with some carnuba wax, talc and microcrystalline wax.. "maybe some crayons for color" and ill be making statues in no time!

666maxey: Thanks! Im doing that right now.

onemon22: I got mine done, but the wax ring would not stick to the toilet bowl so placed it on the hole. Second, I got new bolts so I used them and later found out they were too long and I could not put the caps on. Thanks for all the other info, it helped a lot.

George Ford: You need to cut off the bolt with small saw

Richard de Souza: They beat Syracuse this afternoon! Awesome game! I love Notre Dame! October 1, 2016.

Christopher Bailey: Very helpful. Thank you very much!

Annony Mouse: Why don't you place the plastic flange into the drain tube on the floor and THEN place the toilet on top of the wax ring?  I'm just wondering if it will be difficult to match up those two pieces if you are lifting the toilet onto the drain?  Please let me know, thanks!

Robert Brandywine: I've tried that before and started over.  The issue is you want to know absolutely that the ring is adhering to the toilet with a good seal AND that it is centered on the hole on the toilet. 

George Ford: Some people do on the floor and some people put on the base
