Toilet flange


Recently I tiled my bathroom floor. There was an existing toilet flange that I also uncovered, but it was about a half inch deep into the concrete. Now there is about an inch and a quarter between the flange and the top of the tile. Is this going to pose an problem? I am pretty sure there are wax rings of different heights and sizes, but not sure if they come this big.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

You could try double stacking them to make up the difference.

Toilet flange


i like to use raise a ring to bring up to around flush or just below then use a push tite to go inside old pipe to create a good seal. the box stores and hardware stores will have one brand or another. check link to get an idea

also make sure you screw new flange to floor with stainless screws in wood and 1/4 inch diameter tapcons for concrete then follow with wax ring with horn and toilet bolts

Toilet flange


I do not mean to hijack the thread but I have a very similar issue. We just got back from vacation tonight during which time our bathrooms were both tiled. I don't have much plumbing type experiencing beyond replacing a wax ring or two on a standard even flush floor.

Now I have about an inch to an inch and a half between the flange on the floor and the top of the tile and when I went to set one of the toilets tonight so we'd have one for tomorrow I thought that a jumbo tall ring would do the trick but the toilets are not making enough contact to compress the ring and seal it to the flange well.

To make matters worse it seems like the toilets are slightly wobbling when set down on the tile, so I guess that means the floor that was put in was not precisely level.

I am looking for suggestions on what to do for both problems. Should I be putting some sort of shim under the edge of the toilet? If so what material should it be or do the make something specifically for toilets?

Additionally they didn't leave me a whole lot of room to work with here....

He meant double stacking the wax ring. I contemplated doing this as well I am not sure if I should though,
