I cut the hole and the upper patch.





I only need to do the larger patch that will hold the upper one from below.
Thank you again.

Is that patch not moving at all? I ask because your toilet will be fastened to a flange that in turn is fastened to that patch.

By the way if your installing a new toilet use the fernco waxless gasket.

There is a foundation wall around the house, with openings spaced regularly. House is in California.

It moves since the picture I posted is just the dry fitting. I will cover the bottom of the plywood subfloor with a large patch of 1-in plywood screwed and gueld from below. And then I'll screw and glue the patch from the photo on top of it.

Now that looks like a better mouse trap! Never seen this before.

What I liked about it is I could temporarily sit my toilet down with the Waxless so I did not have to run to the first floor during the night. Buy the correct size its long so your tile height is not a problem. It glues on the new toilet bottom soap it up so you can get it into the pipe easier with dish soap mixed with water. They been in for 7 years now and never leaked.
