In response to Re: replacing toilet floor flange
: I just went to install a new toilet and noticed that the toilet floor flange is broken where the bolts attach from the toilet.
: The flange is plastic and our pipes in the house are pvc. The tolet seemed to be leaking also, possibly because the
: the flange is a hair lower than the tile floor which I presume was an afterthought. Nevertheless how do I install a new
: flange or is there another solution.
: Thanks

Grant, If the floor flange is 4" then they make a flange that fits down inside the 4" pipe and has set screws to lock it in and then screw the flange to the floor. If you have 3" they make a repair ring although you may have a problem useing it if the flange is below the tile. I have bought a plastic floor flange in the past, taken the metal off the flange and screwed it to the floor on top of the old flange. Dale Peck LMP
