Question

Rusted Toilet Flange and Damaged Floor in Basement Bathroom


Good Day - I'm replacing my toilet in my basement bathroom. When I removed it, the flange is rusted and unusable. Another thing is the flooring is damaged around it and cannot be used to anchor the the toilet (see depth of screw driver in hole). I removed the rusted areas of the flange, these are the areas where the toilet will be bolted to. I want to remove the entire piece but I'm concerned about damaging the actual waste pipe which is PVC. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately you're gonna need to jackhammer and replace the entire thing. You'll need to expose the pipe underneath (which appears to be a 90 degree elbow). That means you'll need to expose it back far enough to replace the 90, and install a new closet flange.

EDIT - If there's enough good cement under the old flange you might be able to install a quick flange with masonry screws.

Actually, you can buy a steel flange adapter that would allow you to bolt it to the floor just outside your dimensions. Home Depot carries them.

It's called a "closet flange quick ring". Google it so you know what they look like. http://www.plumbsource.net/product/2...ment-Ring.html

Secure it with Tapcon masonry screws. The big blue ones.

Hello; when installing a closet-flange-quick-ring over a corroded, broken flange, is there a need for caulking of any kind?

Or does the wax seal take care of any gaps.

Thank you,

Yes, you should caulk it. Revisit the link. It references a type of caulk that will work.
