Ok, so redoing my bathroom, had it stripped to the sub, the old closet flange was destroyed, and the ring portion was practically in pieces.. So then i started to tile, did 1/2 hardi and tile. I have about a 3/4 void between the old pipe and the top of the floor which the new flange will sit on.
My plumber decided to use grout around the old pipe missing the flange, and said that would ultimately contain any leaks or smells when a new ring is installed on the tile, and wax ring is used.. im not happy about this and took pictures to better explain.
What i wanted to use (cut and replace old sewer line) I even purchased this with him, and he had full intentions of using it.
And i requested it be cut and roughed in prior to installed the cement board, and even after the tile was done.. i said hey this is prob a really easy time to do this.. but it wasnt done.. so yesterday i was grouting with him and had to leave to get paint.. came back to find this
He grouted deep into the 3/4 inch void around the old sewer pipe and his proposed solution was to install this
and put a bunch of silicone around the old pipe and up to the new flange..
he assures me that it would be fine.. im very sceptical
