In response to Re: Toilet Flange
: What is a "nonflanged connection"? If it is just a piece of pipe, why can't you install a new flange over it?

: : I just replaced the subflooring and put ceramic tile down in my bathroom. The previous homeowner had a non-flanged ABS connection and the toilet was secured directly to the subfloor. I feel like I should have replaced the connection with a new flange, but now it is too late. My hardware store suggested a "super flange" that is sealed against the existing pipe and then screwed to the floor.

: : Will this really work or did I screw up and need to pull the ceramic tile?

The toilet flange goes on top of the finished floor. Before we had flanges we would pack the bottom of the toilet with putty and screw the toilet bowl to the floor. I don't know what a super flange is but I agree with hj that a regular flange should be installed. LonnythePlumber
