    Unhappy Toilet leaks after 4 wax rings.

    My dad had me install a new toilet in his bathroom. It ended up leaking. I redid it 4 times with a new wax ring each time and it still leaks. Since taking it off the last time, I discovered there are 4 porcelain stubs on the bottom which cause the toilet to sit about an eighth of an inch off the floor. Could this be causing my problem or am I just not tightening the toilet down enough? I am really afraid of cracking the new toilet. When I removed the toilet I discovered the wax ring was smashed down nice and evenly and it has about a quarter of an inch above the toilet flange.

    I am enclosing a picture of the bottom of the toilet.
