    Is there a difference in the type of wax rings for the toilet? The one I have is over 40 years old.

    Try carefully tightening the toilet bolts that hold the toilet to the floor up, but don’t overdo it as it could crack the porcelain bowl. If that doesn’t help, put a shim between the floor and toilet.
