Offset Flange


I am in the process of installing an offset flange in an older home (approximately 50 years old). The problem I have is the copper waste pipe in my house is 2.5" and the flange is 3". I have been unable to find a 3" to 2.5" coupler anywhere. Everyone store that I call thinks I'm crazy and that no such thing exists.

Any ideas?

Offset Flange


Have you tried a real plumbing supply house (as opposed to Home Depot)?

I tried 2 that I could find in the area and they both told me that the standard sizes are 1.5", 2", 3" and 4".

I would think your best option would be on of those rubber couplings if you have the space.

You can get 2.5" copper pipe and fittings, but I'm surprised you have it on the toilet waste line.
