    Options for toilet flange to 4" x 3" closet bend

    I'm replacing the toilet flange and bend in a floor framed with 2x8s. The existing horizontal pipe that connects to the stack is 3" diameter. In the area where I live, the only option for a suitable closet bend that will fit in the joist cavity is a 3" x 4" hub X hub closet bend, which seems...

    Leveling WC waste stub when installing closet bend

    Hi all, I'm installing a WC waste stub under concrete slab and run in to a possible issue installing the closet bend. The primary waste line is about 1.5' deep, so I added a section of 4" abs using a coupler at the closet bend. However, in order to achieve 1/4" slope at the first (short)...

    Closet flange questions

    I'm working on an upstairs toilet in an old house that originally had a lead closet bend. A plumber replaced the lead bend with a 4" cast iron pipe, cutting the vertical part shorter because there was tight clearance below the floor to a notch in a joist. They installed an outside clamping cast...
