Tiling a floor


I'm installing backer board in a bthroom and i've already cut the pieces to fit where they need to go. Do you install the closet flange on top of the backer board or under it?

I think ideally, you want to end up with the flange flush to your finished tile floor.

Just to be sure, if the flange is on top of the cement backer board and I tile up to the flange, should I worry about water leaking from the toilet?

I like to leave the flange loose enough so I can slide the tile under the flange. It should not leak if the toilet is installed correctly. I do not caulk around my toilet for a few weeks just so i can check and make sure it is not leaking.

I'm also putting a Pedestal sink in, should I install the pedastal ontop of the Backer board or tile first and place the Pedastal on the tiles?
