Dad vs Toilet – Round 1

There was a leake around the bottom of the toilet.

My friend said it might be a bad wax ring.  I bought all
the necessary items and popped the toilet. (seen here)

I returned the toilet, and for a while, it worked.

Then it started leaking around the base.

 Looking closer at the toilet, there was a leak at the
BACK of the toilet.  (so there was probably nothing
wrong with the wax ring)

But now, there WAS a problem with the way I installed
the wax ring.  So now, we had double the leak.

Round 1 – Toilet wins.

The next night, I tried again.  Round two – Dad wins!
