Ah, potty humor. lolFYI - The plumber who was at my house this week said that there is a backflow device for toilets, that is installed in the pipe under the toilet. Didn't ask about cost. But someone may want to consider that option.
The seal between a toilet and the septic plumbing is a wax ring. This creates a good seal when the toilet flushes into an empty sewer pipe.However, in recent flooding, in which the standing water level was above the height of the wax ring, I've had seepage out through the wax ring. Anyone know of a way to avoid this? I guess a bfp below the toilet is one way, but it sounds expensive. I was thinking of something that's a bit stickier than the wax ring, and which would not leak. Does it exist?
