A little background, about six months ago I discovered that the toilet in my kids' bathroom was rocking. Turned out the bolt had broken loose from the flange. So, I disconnected the toilet, fixed the flange and put on a new wax ring. Problem is, I was changing the toilet myself and after dropping it on to the bolts the first time, I noticed I missed. So, I took it back up again, fixed the new wax ring as best I could (it was not a perfect circle anymore) and then got it down to the bolts. Everything worked well (no noticeable leaks), so I finished up the project by caulking around the base of the toilet.
Now, six months have gone by and I have two questions. (1) Even though I have no leaks and no smell of sewer gas, should I worry about the wax ring not being perfectly placed on the bowl/flange? I did not notice any leakage under the bowl or on the first floor under the bathroom in question.
(2) I noticed that the toilet is not as powerful when flushing anymore. My six year old is constantly clogging it and she is not doing anything out of the ordinary (i.e., putting too much tissue in it or flushing items other than waste). Would this have anything to do with the wax ring or should I think about upgrading the toilet (it is a bit older)?
Any guidance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
