|In response to Re: Broken Cast Iron Flange|
A hammer and chisel applied to both sides of the flange will remove it very quickly. Then a "clamp on" flange can be installed on the pipe after the old lead and oakum are removed from it.
: We just bought our first home. To our surprise, the toilet in the master bathroom leaked at the base when flushed.
: If I decide to take this project on how should I proceed? Should I cut out the existing cast iron flange a few inches from the floor's surface
: We have a terrazzo floor underneath the tile so I am not dealing with a wood floor. I would assume that I could just slide the PVC flange into place.
: What are your suggestions for making this a DIY project; should I even dare?
