Yes it can leak. Get a flange with a rubber compression ring or one the new flanges that fit inside the four inch cast pipe and tighten with set screws. Terry

: I have remodeled my bath and not yet installed flooring. I have had to
: remove the old toilet cast iron flange. I need to install a new
: one. The old one was attached and sealed with lead.
: Do they make a replacement for the iron pipes? I found
: one at Home Depot but it fits loosely around the pipe.
: I can bolt it to the floor but there will be a small
: gap around the pipe. Will this gap cause a leak even with
: the wax ring?
