Metal Closet Flange
 
I have a bathroom in my basement. I have a toilet and no sink. I want to add a sink by adding a drain to drain into the toilet drain. But the closet flange is metal. What is the best way to get this removed so i can replace it with a plastic one to tie in my sink drain?
My floor is 3 in concrete so i dont have access to it from the bottom.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thank

You will need to open the floor and tie into the mainline, then run new line to sink location, there is no other way to do this.

what would be the best way?

its about 3 inch iron pipe. Would i just cut it and add a pvc T joint for the sink drain?

Once you find the line then yes you will cut in a wye fitting to connect in your sink drain.

Is this sink going to be on the same wall as the toilet sits on? If so, how far away will it be from the toilet?

about 3 feet away from the toilet.

Then you need to go into the floor.

Thanks

I used one of those, The terracotta pipe was a pain to snap evenly though.

thanks again

Also,

Would it be ok to use plastic pipe to run the water line?
Or should I stick to coper pipe?


Thanks

Copper or pex is preferred.
