I am putting in a new floor and toilet. Its vinyl sheet and will go over a new 1/4" underlayment. I am uncertain as to where in relation to the top of the new floor should the toilet flange be located?
That is, should it be protruding 1/4" above the top of the new floor? Should it be totally on top of the new floor? Should it be below the top of the new floor? Should it be level with the top of the new floor?
By looking at the bottom of the new toilet, where the seal goes, its flush with the bottom sides of the toilet...thus sitting on level floor the bottom of the bowl will be in contact with the floor as well as the opening that the seal goes around. If the flange is above the top of the floor then it would seem as if the toilet would be seated directly on the flange. Maybe causing it to rock? I don't know how the seal would work either if the bowl is in direct contact with the flange.
Any information appreciated....Thanks for reading my post!
