    Last night I pull the 40 year-old toilet out of the powder room only to discover that the flange is gone. The pipe is cast-iron coming through a slab. It looks as if someone busted the flange off completely and tried to compensate with one of those horn-equipped wax rings and anchors straight into the slab. Now the orginial tile was thin (like vinyl) but I am replacing it with ceramic tile. Do I have any options that don't involve busting concrete?

    Yes, they make a PVC flange that will go into the CI pipe and then you will drill into the concrete to anchor it to the floor. Check the big box store L***s.

    It has a rubber seal on the outside of the flange pipe that seals to the inside of the CI pipe.

    I still prefer to lead on a cast iron flange.

    No pvc for me, but if you believe that will be easier go right ahead.
