    I am installing a new toilet and 3" pvc drain. Please tell me if this is ok:

    1. Instead of closet bend, I used a 90 deg el. Ok?
    2. There isn't enough vertical room to install a stub of pipe to get from the el to the flange so I got an inside-mount toilet flange that fits directly to the el. Is it ok to use this?

    The plumbing supply place didn't sell inside-mount flanges bkz they said that no good plumber would use one. But I've found them to be readily available elsewhere (HD, L's, online). If they were really that obsolete, I would have thought they'd be harder to find (kind of like vent tees ;)


    Any help appreciated.

    They are not "obsolete" it is just that no plumber would use one, since it could be a continual service problem that he would have to take care of for free.
