We have a Kaufman & Broad home with a slab floor; the toilet floor flange seems to be protruding or setting too high. When the toilet is set in place with the wax ring, all the wax squeezes out...no seal. This process has been repeated without any success. My husband is thinking about replacing the flange; but, feels it may prove to be too difficult for him. Any suggestions? Thank you.

You may want to call a plumber.

There are several different wax seals out there and several closet rings ( the flange on the floor) as well. You may have purchased a wax that won't seat properly with the type of closet ring they used to build the house. I once remodeled a day care center that had 3 different types of closet rings within just six kiddie toilets.

The easiest solution is to pull the toilet off and then reset it in a bed of grout as thick as you need to compensate or possibly tile your floor.
