 Wall Hung Toilet Gasket
Author: Curly (CA)

Hi Guys,

I have to pull and re-hang 3 wall hung toilets on JR Smith carriers that are leaking at waste connection at wall.

In the past I have used Harvey Bol-Wax No. 5 and JR Smith felt gasket (not together).

Factory supplied gasket is foam rubber that usually gets hard and falls apart.

I was just wondering what your preferred gasket/seal is?

Anything new/better?

I have had good luck with the felt that has wax infused with it. Much depends on the rough-in diminutions being correct. Sometimes there is too much space between the bowl and the hanger calling for adding a wax ring to fill the space. You need to carefully tighten these up when this is the case. Use the tightening procedure that comes with the install instructions.
