    Doing a bathroom remodel and pulled the toilet. The flange appears to have broken off and left behind the pipe. Unfortunately its bent and uneven. The lead pipe goes into pvc at some point but not sure how far down. Looking into the pipe I can see pvc about 6-8 inches down. The lead pipe is 4 in diameter. Any ideas on best fix without tearing up the floor?

    A brass closet flange made for lead. Fit flange over the lead, and bend the lead down gently.

    There are also offset flanges for lead, if you want to make a small adjustment in position.

    Thx for the info. Should I remove the surrounding tile or set the flange on top of the tile? The top of the pipe is uneven and some is above the tile, some below and some even with the tile.
