Hi,



I discovered that a terrible flange job causing leaking in my bathroom basement. The flange was really not even (1.5 inch difference) and the bolt where not at the right place.



Thus I took of the flange and I am planning on putting a new one.



However while taking off the old glued flange i did a few dent in the exterior pipe with both my saw and chisel (as you can see in the picture).

I don’t think the dent went all the way through



My plan is to put a new flange twist and set and hopefully the gasket should be below those dent so no water should encounter those.





For extra precaution I wanted to fill those dent to make sure no water could pass through. What should I use ? ABS cement glue ?



Thank you for your advices

I don't know what the photos are intended to show.

What is that light-colored stuff down farther?

I think ABS cement

The first picture is to show the overall installation, the second one to show the chisel cut and saw cut in the pipe

Hard to see what's going on there but it looks like the flange ring was removed and now you're left with the original pipe and the flange hub still glued on. Is that correct?

Yes ! And I noticed another problem today the flange is not even because the pipe is not vertical …
I think I might have to dig around the concrete :(
