toilet drain


Most toilet flanges have a 3" outlet right?My problem is the existing plumbing in the concrete basement floor.The toilet drain in the floor is a aluminum pipe and is all bent out of shape,my flange is too small.I don't know what size the bent oddball pipe is,nothing at the plumbing store matches?HELP!

You sure the pipe is the pipe and not a cover that was put over the pipe to keep concrete from going down there when the floor was poured?

I think it,s the toilet drain? I poured water down it,it does'nt backup,no gas smell coming from it.The drains for the sink&shower are ABS 2" pipe,that's why i think this aluminum pipe is for the toilet,it's the only other pipe there!

Take a picture if you can. I've never seen aluminum drainage pipe. Also if it was connected to sewer you would definitely smell sewer gases. It should be ABS also.

Sounds more like HVAC duct

Possible Radon Remediation pipe that goes under the slab to be piped out side.

Really don't know. Like Lateral said Pictures. I'm sure someone on here will know.
