Puttin in tile around toilet flange


Ok. I have never put tile down before. I probably would have laid the pattern differently had I though ahead. I need to know if what I am doing will turn out ok. When I cut the tile so it would go around the flange I cut a bit more than I expected.

I haven't applied the thinset yet. I just put the tile in. However I have put in all the surrounding tiles already.

The back wall is to the right of the flange, sink cabinet to the left, another wall on the right.

Come time to grout be sure to place some duct tape over those long holes in the flange plate so you don't get grout in there. The pedestal bolts must be able to travel in those grooves.

I almost dont want to have to say this, but the bolts for the toilet arent going in where the long lines/holes are. They are actually in already, you can see the tip of the one at the bottom of the picture near the bag of grout.

Here is another view. You can see that the cabinet is to the left with a wall at the back and on the right.

I'll bet the bolts are too short, that's what I see also.

Why is the flange installed the way it is?

The bolts that are there...

are they bolts with heads (underneath) or are they studs?

they are shaped just like they should to go in the lines that they didnt use because they put it in sideways apparently.
The bolts are the ones that originally were on the toilet

Well crap!!!

Oh well, see if they are in fact too short first then if they are you'll have to deal with it at that time. Your options are sorta' limited.

On second thought...................

Go measure your pedestal and then measure the bolt exposure you have before you go any further.

You may have to take them suckers out now before you grout. One will come out easily the other you'll have to work with a bit.

Then later you can use a studded bolt, they have a wood screw thread on one side and a machine thread on the other. Can't think of what they are called right now.

Hey bud, is it okay to have that flange situated where the tile is actually right underneath the flange? How much height can the flange be above the tile and still allow the toilet to seat correctly. My tile will be butting up to the bottom of the flange.
