Took the old toilet off and found the closet bolt holts for the
plastic flange are broken. It appears there are no bolts holding the
flange to the PVC piping. It may glued in.
Looked at a repair ring from Ace but it's too big and the holes don't
What's the best way to resolve this? Any way to repair the ring? Or
how do I get it off the piping under the floor. (Floor is concrete)
I had the same problem as you this summer. My toilet drain is black abs
(4"). Some people may have cast and the diameters might be a bit different
so get the right flange.
I bought a product similar to this:
I simply seat the new flange in the old then I put a tapcon drill thru the
back ring hole to sturdy it to the concrete floor then mounted the toilet to
the good flange with regular toilet bolts.
In my case it raised the new toilet base up a bit so I used a sponge seal
ring instead of a wax seal and I bought plastic shims to level the toilet.
Sturdy as hell.
