  • Different wax ring?

    Customer called me to install her glacier bay toilet. She got to the point of installing the bowl and that's it. When I pulled the bowl off, the wax ring there(factory one) was different then other ones I've seen. It was super sticky and left a petroleum residue on my hands similar to price tag residue. Wasn't able to wipe it off my hands with a towel but got it off with wd40. It smelled like rubber cement and it burned very easily(so I'm bored and a pyro). Is this a new type of wax ring you'll have seen?
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

    I've seen one that seems like some man-made polymer.

    Lighter yellow when new.

        apparently the bee's are not keeping up so wax rings are being outsourced to China

          Even the bees in China make crappy products.

            Yeah those are garbage..can't even get the wrapper off.. Have a"house flipper here" that buys glacier bay on every job but I don't even try with those things, always toss em out.

                Ring sucks tank and bowl sucks but customer supplied material gets installed if that's wat they pay for... Rings go to protect myself even though No customer supplied mat. Is warrantied.
