      replaced wax seal on toilet per instructions. It now sounds like it is not seated properly. You can actually hear flushing action down pipes. How do you tell if it is seated properly. It is not leaking or smelling.

      Sounds like horn of bowl is resting on closet flange. Take it loose and shift bowl backward or forward and see if it works. If not take up bowl and see where bowl set. If wax ring is to one side or back or front you have to move to fit.
