toilet flange


The prvious owner put a ceramic floor in the bathroom and now the flange sits level with the floor. It is a brass flange with lead waste pipe. Is there something I can use to shim the the flange up a little bit .

I think you can find a flange extension at most any hardware store.

Check out wax rings... some have a drop flange... some plumbers would rather double up on the wax ring...

Why did you lift the commode? water leak? or just to give the underside a good fall cleaning?

Use a flange extender. These are available in different thicknesses starting at 1/4". Be sure to attach it to the floor and old flange using the holes provided.
