In response to Re: New Toilet On New Tile Floor

: I am having a handyman repairing the subfloor and installing floor tiles in my bathroom. I did not see how the cast iron toilet flange was attached to the floor before. But I notice that it does not have any holes on it except two slots (holes that open all the way to the edge) which I think are for the toilet bolts. Now I have two problems. 1. How to secure the toilet and the flange. 2. The flange will end up about 1" below the finished tile floor surface. Two wax rings or more? Please give your advice. Thank you very much.

Long bolts and two or more wax rings should do it. The closet bolts fit in the slots of the flange. In some cases, if the flange is loose, you can add a repair flange that has wider setting holes that allows a better chance of a screw hitting wood. Terry
