subfoor and toilets??
I starting to finsh my basement after 10 years. I am thinking about add a subfloor such as Dricore for comfort. My basement has all the plumbing aready in place for a toilet. My Question is how to raise the toilet flange about an inch or less, or would the wax ring fill the gap. I realy don't wont to break up the floor.
any advise would be great

I'm a dog lover myself, but we won't go there. LOL
A toilet flange should be solidly bolted to the finished floor level for a wax ring to seal properly. Only the thickness of the flange (about 1/4") should be above finished floor level.
You can probably use one of those new "waxless" toilet seals that are adjustable.

I've never used one but I hear that plumbing supply houses carry some kind of spacers that you can put on the toilet flange.

But if you really want comfort in a bathroom why not put an electric radiant heat grid under ceramic tile directly on the concrete? Warm feet!
