RE: Trouble with leaking around toilet flange

The last incident was caused from "friends" who we allowed to stay in the motorhome.that didn't follow instructions. So I had to rip out the flooring, dry everything out for a week, and this week am having sheet vinyl installed again. I'm confused about how well of a seal that rubber/foam ring provides. And if you can "feel" the ring compress when you install the toilet before you tighten the bolts. I put the toilet back down temporarily today and I couldn't feel the ring compress when the toilet was sitting but not bolted down. You won’t feel it compress - I’ve never felt mine compress, the O ring seems only minimalist-ornamental to me - trust that this malady is uber common… 3 tons Thank you for your response. I'm finally done searching. :)

Trouble with leaking around toilet flange

I have a Thedfod 31112 toilet. When the blackwater tank was overfilled,it leaked from the the floor seal. I've had this problem in the past. I have three questions: 1. Should that seal on the floor prevent water from leaking when it gets over full? Or is that gasket just to prevent odors to come up and not seal from water leakage? I've had this toilet out about 4 times for various reasons and replaced the ring with a new one every time. 2. When i install the toilet, I cannot feel any compression, or seal betweenl the toilet and the ring. Could the flange be so high that it prevents the toilet from sealing? 3. If the flange is to high to prevent the proper sealing, can I find a thicker gasket to compensate? The flange on the tank is glued in, so it cannot be moved. Thanks for any and all suggestions. I've searched online and cannot find anything about finding a thicker gasket, although I thought I did read about someone somewhere getting one from a plumbing wareeshouse. Brad N. Myrtle Beach,SC
