In response to Re: toilet flange replacement??
The easiest fix is to call a plumber and have him replace the flange. He has a better chance of removing it wihtout damaging the house or piping, than you would, assuming he is a good plumber.

: : While painting the kids bathroom in a 3 1/2 year old home, I removed the WC to paint behind it. Upon removal, the flange is broken on one side and distorted (the flange bolts pulled the ABS up) on the other. Directly below the flange is an elbow turning towards the stack. What is the easiest fix. The WC will no seat properly now and has already caused a mould stain on the vinyl flooring from between the subfloor and vinyl. Any help is appreciated.

: Are you on a concrete slab? Do you have a bsement or crawl space? Is this a second level or higher bathroom? The repair depends on the circumstances.
