I HAVE ADDED CEMENT BACKER BOARD&CERAMIC TILE TO MY BATHROOM FLOOR AND NOW I CANT GET A SEAL WITH A TYPICAL WAX RING BECAUSE OF THE ADDED FLOOR HEIGHT.I HAVE ONLY 2" OF VERTICAL PIPING BELOW THE FLANGE BEFORE MAKING A 90 DEGREE BEND AND WANTED TO KNOW WOULD THE ULTRASEAL TOILET TO DRAIN SEAL WORK FOR MY SITUATION.ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

If the flange was flush with the floor before and a No. 1 wax seal was working ok, then going to a No 3 seal should work for you. Is you waste line cast iron or ABS? Either can be changed to relocate the flange, but ABS is a lot easier to work with (and a lot easier on the budget!)

A THICK WAX RING WILL NOT HOLD UP, YOU WILL DISCOVER SOONER OR LATER THAT THE FLOOR WILL START TO ROTT, THE FLANGE NEEDS TO SIT ON TOP OF THE FINISHED FLOOR TO WORK CORRECTLY.

TELL YOU HOW TO FIX IT OTHER THAN THE RIGHT
WAY.
