Townsend Toilet Seal
The Closet Flange Seal used on the porcelain Townsend toilet of the 1950’s/1960’s is no longer made. Over time it compresses and shrinks and allows any water left standing above the flapper valve to leak out at the base of the toilet. Below is one way to extend the life of the seal. If anyone discovers a new source for this old seal, please let us know.
