Are you talking about the Kohler Persuade toilets? I wanted to go with this one because of the slim lines and skirted bottom. This is a really tiny bathroom, and the slimness will offer the appearance of more space

I bolt these to the existing flange, or through the flange into the concrete. I then install a gerber viper toilet, shim if needed, then I caulk around the entire base, including the back.
That's kind of what I am thinking of doing to repair the flange bolt, but am wary as I don't want to raise the level of the flange too much either. Plus, driving concrete screws through that old flange will likely destroy the base of the flange even further... not really sure what to do :P

Re: Toilet Flange Help Needed


All i can offer is half ass fixes that I never get call backs on. That stainless steel ring will fit over that flange nicely. The flange can crack, it is really just a spacer under the ring.
For a matter of ease and speed, drill into the concrete where their is gaps in the flange and run a tap con into the concrete. Plastic plugs my be easier for you to work with

Re: Toilet Flange Help Needed


So I picked up a stainless steel flange repair ring, it's a no go because it will not fit over the existing cast iron closet flange. Too, because that one side broke away just by tapping on it, I was not feeling secure the rest of it would hold up even if I were to get one of the flatter types of repair rings. So some exploratory work and light taps with a hammer and cold chisel, yep, this thing was just waiting to crumble, (pics below). Had I even tried to drill any kind of flange kit down it would have just fell apart on me.

Anyway, can someone give me an idea of what I am looking at here?

The closet flange is obviously cast iron by how brittle it is, but what about the inside of the offset? Is that cast iron as well? or is that offset steel, and is there is a transition between the closet flange?

You can also see that someone in a moment of pure genius filled the grooves in the flange with cement, so I'm having a hard time really discerning what I am looking at

I'm going to keep chipping away at this, trying to clean out the cement, without destroying any more of the flange.

I really appreciate the help so far, and apologies in advance for being such a newb at this.

Re: Toilet Flange Help Needed


Okay, got my bathroom light reinstalled so have better lighting. I can now see down inside the offset flange and can actually see the lead used to secure it to the drainage pipe.

If I could have gotten a flange repair kit on it, I think it would raise the level of the it would raise the level of the flange too high above my floor. What if I were to take a grinder to this flange, and lower it enough that I could bolt on a kit? I'm already screwed I think, so I'm willing to try just about anything before having to bust up my concrete floor.

Thoughts?
