I carry white , sanded floor grout for those " special" toilets that don't want to set right. After a day of setting up , damn near need a sledge hammer to remove !

I know guys who have used hydraulic cement; they put grease on the bottom of the bowl first so it wouldn't stick though.

So did the toilet stop rocking? Or did you have to go knocking?

I wasn't there for the toilet, so I didn't really go messing around with it. The tub had no wall on the back side, just a piece of tub surround cut to fit and glued on. It was apart a little and it looked like they blew the entire underside of the tub full too.

Ive seen plenty of people fill the openings around windows with that expanding foam, never to be able to open the windows again after it expanded and dried, jamming the windows tight....

...so it's probably a safe bet that the toilet doesn't rock anymore.
