I'd tell the customer to dig an outhouse.

I know they double the gaskets up sometimes for uneven floors, if the flange is recessed down even with a tile floor, etc.
It might possibly have a crank somewhere underneath or in the water channel.? Not sure if you can unhook it and look under it.

I have seen toilets that have been in service for years and then start to leak. On one, I found a small hole at the rear of the bowl near the top under the rim on the outside. When flushed, the rim water would flow out the hole and stop when the toilet was done flushing. A dab of silly-cone fixed it.

Ours is actually leaking a little on the pipe from the tank to the bowl. YES, our tank is actually mounted on the wall with a small pipe to the bowl....it's kinda old....

(BTW - I moved this into the General Topic)

That's why you need an outhouse.
