Another toilet flange question


Hey all,

Has anyone used or heard anything positive/negative about the toilet flanges that fit INSIDE of a stack? This would save me some work in my basement but heard cases of it being prone to plugging?

Thanks to all you fine people!

Another toilet flange question


They are not prone to plugging----

However----the 3" inside flanges have a small opening and often cause installation problems---if it is mounted on top of the finished floor--sometimes the toilets drain horn will hit the inside of the flange,causing the toilet to bottom out and rock---

If you do use one---make sure the flange is flush to the finished floor.

I've had trouble with these several times and will not use them.
