Default Homeowner special

So I go to change out a toilet. The old one wasn't flushing says the new homeowner. I pull the toilet that was siliconed to the floor and see the closet bolts on the front of the closet collar! The rough was about 8-1/2" the moron used a wax ring and putty to try to make a seal...plus the great caulk job. Hopefully the new homeowner can go back on the seller for repair costs. WTF are people thinking when do stuff like this.

There is no plumbing error that cannot be "Fixed" with a copious application of RTV Sillycone...

Some of the new Kohler toilets don't even need flange bolts.... They have two plastic L brackets that you mount to the floor and your good to go
