    What is the procedure for replacing a closet flange? The waste pipe is 3" pvc cast into a slab. I need to replace an offset with a straight.

    Your safest way is to call a plumber because even after you remove the concrete from around it, you could still damage the pipe when trying to remove the old flange. They do not come off easily.
