In response to Re: Toilet Flange

: I am building a new home and doing some of the work myself, particularly the tile in the bathroom. During the plumbing rough-in, my plumber connected the toilet flange. When I tiled the floor, I raised the flange enough to allow the backerboard and tile to slip under it. The flange now sits on top of the tiled floor. My builder noticed it and commented that he would have left it on the subfloor. My question is whether it matters or not if the flange sits on top of the tile or if it would be better if it sits on the subfloor with the tile installed around it.

Doug,
Either way is OK. Make sure the flange is solidly attached to the floor. You don't want to pull the flange up when you tighten the bolts for the toilet. Terry
