        i am wondering if you fill the bolt caps with putty or something waterproof to prevent fluids getting in them by aimless little boys?

        Never have and it's never been an issue.
        I've pulled hundreds of toilets and never once have seen where moisture getting in though the caps was the problem.

        After raising 3 sons;

        Drop some fruit loops in the toilet. Gives them something for target practice.

        Back in the 70's there was a company that would send tiny/little foldable paper boats as a game. I believe it was called "potty pot shots"? To help train little boys to aim better, well aimed shots could sink the boats. Flushable of course.
        Had not thought about that in years.Big Grin

        The elongated toilet is supposed to be better for guys. Just a bit more real estate to hit, before a possible miss?

        I once remodeled a bath that had carpet on the floor and three young boys in the house. It was a memorable experience.

        And yes - after ripping everything out we installed vinyl.

        Between the comments here and on my Weekend post, my cheeks are already sore from laughing. It isn't that often that I laugh so hard my face hurts. Big Grin
