    I have two very old toliets, probably 40 years old.

    Everyday turn black with I assume waste. First a ring forms then spotting. This is everyday and only my wife and I live here.

    As toliets get older do they lose the coating and allow stuff to stick easier?

    Drain it, clean it, wax it.

    Seriously, a marine grade wax should last a while and seal out the dirty rings. That's what boat wax is supposed to do on a boat's hull. I'd try it. It's a far cheaper fix than replacing the toilets.
