Removing Toilet Flange


I have a concrete floor and the toilet flange is rusted out and needs replaced. It looks like the PVC part is glue to the PVC pipe. What is the best way to remove the old flange. FYI - I am installing a new tile floor. We had tile before. Do I need to set the new flange so it will be even with the new floor?

Not necessarily, the flange can sit on top, or be flush across the top of the flange to the top of the tile. The toilet has a recess that will allow the flange to go into it if it does sit on top of the tile. You may can use whats called a flange repair ring. This looks like the ring of the flange, but is metal instaed of plastic. set it on top of the broken flange, drill out the holes, use galvanized anchors.

I agree with USP45. The repair flange is available at Home Centers. One brand name I have seen is Super Flange. I included a link with a picture of this product.

Ideally the flange should sit on top the finished floor. When using that repair ring be sure to fasten it to the floor well.
