In response to Re: removing pvc toilet flange from basement floor
If you glued the flange into the pipe, you used the wrong flange and could have a serious problem. a plumber would have the tools and experience to remove it, but it is not something I would want to try to describe and then expect you to follow the directions exactly, even if you wanted to go to the expense of buying the necessary tools.

: I made a serious mistake and glued a toilet flange to the pvc waste pipe in my basement. The waste pipe is under the concrete floor. The flange doesn't sit flush with the concrete floor and I can't add enough final flooring thickness (vinyl, etc.) to decrease the relative flange hgt above floor so that toilet won't rest on flange.

: If I have to remove the flange and put a new one on that will sit flush with concrete, how do I get the old one off?? I can remove the material that is above the floor but what do I do about the section of flange that is securely glued into the waste pipe?

: Please...any advice would be greatly appreciated.
