When trying to install a new wax ring with the plastic flange, the plastic flange did not fit in the floor drain hole, is that normal?

Should I use 1 or 2 wax rings with out the flange?

Picture would help greatly. What size flange is it? When was it installed? – gregmac Aug 18 '13 at 21:28
If you don't use the flange then you will have nothing to bolt the toilet to. Also there is a couple different sizes of wax rings, maybe you need the bigger size? Pictures would help greatly. – maple_shaft Aug 19 '13 at 2:16
