mortar flange ?
Posted by Charlie McGuire on February 22, 2003 at 18:24:16:
I'm doing some basement rework in 35 yr old house. I took up the basement toilet to find what appears to be
mortar globbed around the top of the waste pipe instead
of a flange. Toilet was anchored into the mortar with big wood screws. Of course where the screws were anchored is pretty gungy and loose. The rest of the mortar is hard. The mortar is also dripped/dried on the inside of the waste pipe. It seems pretty ad-hoc.

I want to put a tile floor down in this area.

How can I fix this up right (more detail is better for
me who is not a plumbing guru :))
