    I've got a question. My wax seal started to leak on my toilet (after 20 years). I decided to take the task on myself. I removed the toilet and the old wax gasket. Well, the flange had obviously seen better years so I decided that I was going to replace that as well. Now, I removed the old metal flange ring and I cannot get the pvc portion that connects to the drain to come off. I don't see any glue but I'm stuck. Any suggestions?

    It is glued, and we cannot tell you the best way to go from here. Whether it will be easier to remove the flange, try to fit a repair flange, or ???.
