In response to Re: cast iron toilet flange on cement basement floor

: 1) Can i moount the flange right on the concrete, and run the floor up to it? this will result in top of the flange
: being flush with the floor or maybe a hair higher than the floor.
: 2) The space (air space) between the casst iron pipe and the edge of the concrete will not really allow me to
: fasten the flange to the cement floor. How can I remedy this problem? How can I attach the flange to the
: Thanks for any ideas or advice
It's a piece of cake!! Measure the inside diameter of the cast iron pipe. It probably is 4". Go to a plumbing supply house (Noland, Ferguson Enterprise, Steinhouse, etc.) and ask for a PVC flange that slips inside the pipe and has a rubber gasket that expands inside the pipe when you tighten the bolts. Go ahead and put down your finished floor, tightly against the outside of the cast-iron pipe and allow the flange to be on top of the finished floor. Then drill 4 ea. holes in the concrete (thru the holes in the flange) and use "Tapcon" masonry screws to anchor the flange to the floor.
