What to cover the toilet drain hole with while doing renovations?
You can use the cover from a tub of ice cream, the lid from a gallon can of paint, or just cover it with duct tape. if your renovations include new tile on floor, then make sure your flange is at floor level when finished. This can be done with a spacer kit that will allow you to add spacers to the toilet flange and raise it to floor level. You need todo this before you install the toilet. If the toilet cannot compress the wax seal because the flange is below the floor then you will eventualy have a leak into the ceiling or into the subfloor from the flange.
