|In response to Re: toilet floor flange replacement|
So far I have always been able to get the old flange off without damaging the pipe, however, I would not suggest it to a neophyte, since theirs could be the one that will not remove, and then they would have a broken pipe to replace.
: Don't get too down! True, it is likely some concrete will have to be broken out. A rotary hammer will make short work of that, and it only has to be broken out enough to gain access to the pipe below. Once that is done, the old closet bend or similar fitting, will be cut out, and new pieces glued in. Fill the hole and resurface with concrete, put a new flange on, install the toilet. You may not want to tackle it yourself, but it really shouldn't be too costly to have done.
