In response to Re: Cast Iron toilet flange, 2" above finished floor
A plumber would break the flange off and then lead a new one on. he would then snap the excess pipe off. You probably have the tools to remove it but not install the new one.

: I am remodelling a bathroom and the toilet flange is very high. The reason being that a previous owner remodelled the room and installed tile on top of the old linolium floor. They put while mesh, then a thick layer of mortar and tile on top. The flage is 3-1/2 inches above the joists.

: The new finished linolium floor will be about an inch. So the flange will protrude 2-1/2 inches!

: Any suggestions? I've never cut cast iron before. How is the flange attached? They must have put this flnge on when they installed the tile floor.

: Thanks!

: I've gutted my bathroom down to the studs and joists.
