Thetford rubber gasket

I pulled my toilet to put the new flooring in and wonder if the rubber gasket will need to be replaced? Seems like if it's rubber it should be okay...

I just replaced my toilet and the gasket did not have any tears or cracks or pieces missing and reused it and I have had no leaks.

They are $6.00 on line at Amazon. Ship in two days. Can't hurt to be safe. When they don't work it becomes a somewhat smelly situation.

Good advice. Always replace the gasket when you replace a toilet. Good luck.

Replacing the gasket is recommended to prevent possible problems. It is cheap insurance.
