Toilet Flange Replacement


Hey guys. I need to fix the subfloor under a toilet flange so I need to put in a new one. Looks like ABS with an outer connection (see pics). What's the best way to go about this?

Cut the 3 inch 1.5 inches above that 90 fitting. Then remove your wood floor and use a ABS 3 inch coupling and a new flange. Hopefully one with a stainless steel ring.

Yes, if your existing is 3". Pushing a new gasket flange inside the existing pipe will make the interior too small.
It would work on 4", but not 3".
If you don't want to open the ceiling then perhaps an inside cutter will reach. Then follow up with Ghost's suggested method.

Yeah I was worried about that. The subfloor is up so I have plenty of room to make the cuts from above. Thanks guys.
