How to secure toilet flange to floor?
Posted by John on January 18, 2003 at 21:18:21:
I just removed my toilet to install a new one. When I removed the toilet the flange came up with it. The previous owner of my house did not secure the flange to the floor. The waste pipe is 3" pvc and the flange was connected to the pipe with a fernco coupler. The toilet is on the 1st floor over an unfinished basement so I have access to all the plumbing. The tile is on about 1 1/2"- 2" of concrete on top of the ply wood sub floor. What is the correct way to secure the flange to the floor? Also should I replace the flange with one that will slip over the 3" wast pipe and glue it instead of the fernco? Thanks for any advice. The link will show you a picture under the floor.
