Toilet direction change


I want to remove and install it 90deg different from the direction it's in now. Is there a flange or something made I can adapt to do this? the flange is CI and not easy to move. Anybody?

Have you exposed the flange yet?
Some have notches and slots. When the slots are used, the notches might be 90* from there.

I'm not very familiar with CI....

and I can't picture an integral CI toilet flange... which I think you must be refereing.... otherwise, if it is not integral to the CI pipe, just replace it and rotate it.

A picture sure would help

Best

You can set toilets in either set of notches--
Might get lucky but won't know until toilet is pulled

The center of the flange need to be 12" from the finished wall, what's it going to be if you turn it?

If you have access under the floor and there's room the cast pipe can be snapped off and turned and recoupled with a hub less connector.
