I had my bathroom renovated and had a new toilet installed. I noticed the white caps on the toilet screws were not secure—- looked like the contractor tried to secure them with some sort of caulking. I was not confident that they would stick and I had a grave concern because my daughter likes to pull them off anyway. So I took them off and cleaned up the goop which was used to secure them.
I didn't know if i was being overcritical but it seemed like the caps might have been hiding shoddy work. I attached some photos. Notice the washer (I don't recall seeing them on old insulation). Also it looks like the screw was broken off after it was screwed in. (it's sharp)– again another issue for my daughter.
Couple of questions-
1. Is there custom hardware to attach toilet to floor?
2. What should keep these caps or is there an assumption that you won't have two year olds to pull them out.
