Bathroom Fitting Question
What is the best way to anchor a toilet pan (that has already been plummed in) to a tiled floor
The best way is a white acrylic adhesive/sealant that can be smoothed with a wet finger to make a neat seal. You will then get a strong joint and a neat white seal. You can get this type of material from local builders merchants rather than a DIY store. Hope this helps.

When the toilet was fitted, it should have been mechanically fixed to the floor. All toilets are supplied with a fixing kit.
If it is not possible to do this retrospectively, then your best option is to sit it on a bed of silicone. If you are not proficient with silicone, mask the bottom of the pan and the floor around the toilet pan. Wedge small pieces of cardboard under the bottom of the pan on both sides and the front (1/2mm thick) and apply silicone into the gap between the bottom of the pan and the floor. Dip your finger into washing up liquid and run it around the base of the pan to get a smooth finish.
Allow this 24hrs to go off fully before using.
Hope this helps,
