Some of the vinyl plank flooring at HD is 5.5mm, and I've got some leftovers from HD that are 5/16", so you might get by with a couple layers. If you rummage around in the back at HD, you might find a scrap, reject, or broken something-or-other that might work and be a right price. What is the floor material?

A 3 1/2" "Toilevator" is pretty common (Walmart, Home Depot,...). It's designed to raise the toilet 3 1/2" to ADA height, and is probably overkill for the OP's situation. Home Depot shows a more gasket-like thing that's either .1", 1/8", or 1/4" high, depending on which reviewer you trust, but didn't get a lot of rave reviews. I'd probably measure the height required and cut a piece of vinyl flooring or some other pliable, waterproof material to the shape of the toilet and make my own to bring the floor under the toilet to the height of the flange. A little caulk, and Viola!
Hey Mikey,

Thanks for the advice about using a vinyl flooring to put under that. I actually have some of that at my house so I might use that if my other idea doesn't work.
