What can I use for spacer around pvc pipe for cement repair?


Bascially, this is exactly what Im doing....


2 problems, I dont know where to get the "coupler" they are using, it goes inside the pipe instead of outside and no where around here sells the Oatley foam closet spacer I think theyre using.

I could probably figure something out for the coupler but I dont know what to do about the spacer. Anyone know what I could do for that? Would any foam sheeting work?

I've seen what was in the video at Home Depot and Lowes. But Check out this product. Its available by mail. I used it to repair an unlevel, broken flange in my master bath.

Well, Home Depot sells it but not in my area for some reason. I just went a head and ordered a couple on their website.

The coupling is a standard fitting. If you look closely at it in the video- they sanded it to fit into the pipe.
IMO- you don't need the wrap if you put the flange inside the pipe stub.

An alternative method is to buy an expansion test plug- put it in the pipe.
Then pour your concrete up to the pipe- remove the plug and set your inside flange.
If the pipe is too low-use stiff card stock for a wrap
