      I am installing a new ceramic tile floor in a bathroom. This raises the floor by about 5/8 inch. Is there an extension I can add to the toliet bowl or floor flange to make up for the added distance the wax seal must extend?

      I had exactly the same problem.

      Ask for a “jumbo” wax ring at the
      plumbing supply store. It is thicker and has 50% more wax
      to compensate for the added
      thickness of the tile.

      Also, as a sideline, make sure the
      metal flange ring that holds the
      bolts that secure the toliet bowl
      are tight. I had to reset the
      ring with concrete anchors to the
      foundation because the orignal was
      only put in place with 1″ nails.
