|In response to Re: Toilet Flange|
Almost everything is "watertight" if nothing backs up.
: : You have been working with lead bends too long. The person asked about a cast iron flange, which implies a cast iron bend, and you cannot "ping it over and solder the folded edges. << correct job".
: : : : I need to close off an old cast iron toilet flange without tearing up the floor. Can someone up?
: : : 1- Either solder on a cap
: : : 2- If it is PVC or CI or Galv use a no hub cap
: : : 3- put some news paper in the pipe about 4" deep and fill with cement or plaster
: : : 4- Ping the lead over solder the folded edges so your now water and gas tight << Correct Job
: : : The one above number 4 is easy cheap FIX much like an AAV installation used by infamous BBC's looking to get over folks
: Also I have seen STUMBLE BUMS attach CAST IRON Floor flanges to the floor with lead piping bent over the flange.
: AND HJ it is WATER tight as long as nothing backs up.
