    4D43AE95-5A24-41CC-B2F1-4A3090B9613B.jpeg I was preparing to install a new toilet when I discovered that the end of the cast iron pipe is broken just below the flange... The end of the pipe is missing about 90 degrees worth of iron, and the break extends about 2-1/4” below the top of the flange... Is there any sort of sleeve that can be inserted to extend below the break, or would a JB Weld patch work to solve this problem (if it even is a problem)?

    Thanks... Mike

    You could consider a Danco Hydro Seat. It is like repair ring with a tail. Use wax ring under to fill the gaps.
