Show a picture with a regular closet flange just dry fitted on there. Now of course the easier way would be to just get a slip joint to slip over that PVC, lube it up with Vaseline on the outside of the joint, and then put in the hydraulic cement.

After the cement has started to set, then you can pull the slip joint and let it finish setting until hardened.

It will be OK for 4" though.

If you choose to use an outside flange, wrap the pipe with 2 wraps of sill seal foam before applying the quickset, Then remove the wrap after it cures. This will give you a space around the pipe to receive the hub
Oh... 4"....I agree wholeheartedly with E.... Just use your ID flange and forget about wrapping it for an outside flange.


EDIT: We're all saying the same thing... Sorry, we either x-posted or I missed some postings... it's cocktail hour here.

Don't be intimidated by hydraulic cement. Go easy=take your time and don't get sloppy.

If you accept to use an alfresco flange, blanket the aqueduct with 2 wraps of axle allowance cream fore applying the quickest, Then abolish the blanket afterwards it cures
