I got 5 toto toilets to install in a home built about 1940 on the north side of town...
looked like a fairly easy job until I took the old one piece american standard toilets out
and found a broken flange and another one with probably a 5 pounds worth of putty
on the floor.....
I guess some apprentice back then decided to use a whole 5 pounds of putty to
set these

nothing better than staring at stuff like this all day long.....

I still got the 2 upstairs ones to tackle with help tomorrow and I bet they are
not any prettier.....

At least it cleaned up nice. Worse is coming across something like plaster and having to take a hammer to the old bowl. Yikes!

It's incredible what you run into sometimes when you pull up a toilet. You've got my sympathy. I've learned to always expect the worst.

This is directed more to the neophytes, bless their hearts...
