closet flange extension
 
I am remodeling a basement bathroom right now, the floor was just tiled, so I needed to add a closet flange extension.

Previously the flange was embedded into the concrete, they littearly put it in and poured concrete around it so it was level with the basement floor. it is very secure even though its not bolted or screwed down.

I was just reading that a closet flange should go 1/4" above the finished floor level.

the kit I purchased can raise a max 1/2" I put down tile that added about 1/4" to the floor maybe a slight bit more..

the kit came with two rubber gaskets, the PCV ring, flange bolts (long ones) washer, nuts and two wedge like plastic pieces.

but absolutly no instructions...

I assume you put the flange bolts in the already there flange like you are doing an install, put the gasket over that, then the PVC extender flange on that.

do I bolt this together to make it tight? I assume that is why they gave me washers and nuts?

Also, what are the plastic wedges for? thanks!

bolting the extension down will seal between the 2 flanges. the plastic wedges are to shim the toilet if it doesn't sit flat on the floor.

ah thanks! That's what I thought but, you know what they say about people who assume stuff... wish they'd of just gave a small instruction with it :laughing:
