I am in the process of renovating a bathroom. After removing the toilet
I saw that the metal flange ring was completely rotted away. I removed
the metal flange as it was obvious that it could not be used. I am
laying a floor over the existing concrete slab that will raise the floor
level about 1 inch. Pictures of my situation can be found at (it is 4x3
1. Do I put the new (wood) floor up to the waste pipe and attach a new
flange to the top of the new floor? Any tips on this?
2. If I should not do this and need to put a new flange flush with the
slab I will need to stack wax rings? One with flange, one without?
3. I've installed toilets on existing flanges in good condition but
have not ever replaced a flange. Am I in over my head? If not, again
tips are appreciated.
Thanks in advance
