So… this horned wax ring is not sized correctly for the smaller size waste pipe, and not sitting down on the flange like it should…. Correct?

yukon ok
All the toilets at UCO were replaced with low water usage toilets I was there replacing them.
Every one of them was caulked around the base.
Many semi truck loads of toilets and faucet parts to convert all things to low water use.
That job sucked.
Carrying all those toilets up and down stairs and all the poo, barf and blood on them.
yuck.

I have read that article in the past. So I take it you caulk around your toilets?

Professional or shade tree, I don’t care. I’m on the final stretch of this overly long bathroom remodel, and need to throw the toilet in. Went to put my new flange in, and it doesn’t fit. Looks like the OD of my existing plumbing is 3”. I didn’t see a flange that would work at lowes/Home Depot. Suggestions?? Is there a part somewhere that I can use to make this work?View attachment 284578 View attachment 284579
Check to see if the flange is for cast iron or PVC it makes a difference in the ID and OD sizing, Good luck.
