    Hi,

    I need to remove a floor-mounted, back outlet toilet to put in new flooring. It has a neoprene ring to connect the flange to the toilet and I was wondering if I can just re-use the same one or do I need to get a new one?

    Thanks

    Chun

    I would get a new one as well. Its not worth saving the few bucks and having to pull the water closet again due to leaks.
