Worn Flange
Posted by Sheila Smith on September 12, 19100 at 08:45:11:
To install new flooring, I removed the toilet. Once I lifted the toilet, I noticed the flange was cracked. But, thinking it was fine, I simply re-installed the toilet. However, the toilet leaks now from the bottom constantly.
I am going to remove the toilet again tonight, and plan on replacing the flange. Are these often glued down? Are they generally glued to the floor or to another piece of PVC? If they are glued to PVC, is there anything I should be concerned with when cutting through the old PVC and hooking up to the new PVC??

Thanks in advance for your help. A simple project
has suddenly turned complex!!
