Toilet Flange Help
I just poured some self leveling compound to even out the bathroom floor before I tile. I had a 1 gallon bucket centered over the toilet flange, but it somehow moved to one side.

What's the best way to attach the flange at this point? Should I chip away at the SLC to allow the flange to be bolted directly to the wood, or...?

Here is a photo...

Grinder or dremel would be less likely to disturb the compound.
Messier though.
Wear protection.

I don't know the correct name, but the part that was attached to the previous floor I took off before I put down the SLC. Looking back I should have at least set it there when I covered that area. I don't think I can use to old peice because the new floor is slightly higher. From what I understand I can buy an extender of sort to make up the difference.

is that part of a no-seep wax ring stuck in the pipe?

Yes it still needs to be cleaned up a little.

that small hole in the center was screwing with me! :eek: :laughing:

Can't honestly say I really messed with it too much. Now that I really look at it in the photos it does look a little odd. Next time I'm at the house I'll get a better look, and maybe more photos. All I did was remove the flange from the old plywood, and lay down new stuff.
