Javiles: With all that wire there, i'm not sure if he had an option on it not being beside electical. Should it be moved?? Loose unsecure pipe where???
you are doing the right thing by just replacing all of it including the 1 1/2 galvanized...

closet flange for cast iron pipe


I got a closet flange that has the metal ring that i want to install, i have dry fit it and one side is flush with the floor but the other side is about 1/16 or so off the floor. I can easily push the ring to the floor though.

1) Will just screwing it down be fine or should i put a small shim under the right/low side or what?

Thanks!!

Does pushing the high side to the floor distort the flange or move the pipe?

Differant expansion/contraction rates of differant materials,would definately get tagged around here.
If you put a cast iron why in there and run pvc past that point it would pass that part around here anyway

plummen: It mostly bends the metal down but the pipe does move a tiny bit.

Shim it level with something non-corroding and anchor to the subfloor

psilva8: Actually i should have stated that it's level when i push the flange down flush with the floor. So a shim will basically have it too high, not sure what to do...i guess my pipe coming up isn't perfect??

I'm hoping that when i screw it to the floor, and the weight of the toilet on top that it should be fine. I would like some opinion's though, beceause it's not going in until i feel secure about it!!

If the gap is too much, the metal ring might pop off the flange while anchoring. But if its truly 1/16" gap I wouldn't worry.
