    We recently bought a 1960's house and have started working on renovating the basement bathroom. The bathroom is on concrete slab and the drain lines are made out of cast iron (photos below). We are replacing the shower and will be adding in a tiled floor before reinstalling the toilet. Here's...

    Hi Ran into a problem replacing my toilet. Previous owner installed an extender on the flange as the flange is about an inch below the floor. However, I cannot remove the bolts as it appears as though the extender was installed over the bolts so the keyhole is partially covered by the...

    Hey there, I’m replacing my toilet, watched several videos, and all the existing pipes people connect the flange to look to be straight. Of course, I remove my toilet and it appears the existing pvc pipe “flares” I purchased a 3” and 4” plug (for while we do tile work) and neither fit. I’m...

    Hey everyone. So I messed up my plumbing underground for my basement bathroom and my underground comes out too high for my toilet flange. (My slope is perfect I just miscalculated where to start it). It's all cemented and tiled now as you can see in the picture. What would you recommend I do? My...

    We are remodeling our basement and had rough in plumbing for a basement bathroom put in. Eventually we will have pros come in and install toilet flange, sinks, shower heads, etc. but we will be doing the tiling for the bathroom floor ourselves. Should I tile up to the soil pipe (still currently...
  6. Drywall & Plaster
    I am installing a new tub and shower surround. How do I install the drywall against the surround flange? Should the drywall go to the edge of the flange or overlap it? I want to tile up the side and above the shower surround. Can I use greenboard above the surround with tile or should it be...

    Hi! I'm not a very experienced DIYer and I would like some feedback. I'm replacing my old 1942 toilet. It's been a nightmare as there was a cockroaches nest under it. Thus shut-off sweat valve was leaking as well and I already replaced it. I'm including some pics of the flange to show the gaps...

    Good day all, I just had a flood in my basement where all the water was leaking into my window wells through the gap between the flanges and the foundation. Had a look at the window wells and they have become loose from the foundation. They are getting old so i am just gonna replace them...

    Hello all, I'm getting my condo upgraded on my own and will need all the help I can get. Ran into an issue to cause me to contact you kind folks for advice. If I drill a hole into a surround and it is on the lower curve, how do I bring the base vertical for spout installation is my starting...

    The Problem: The cast iron pipe and flange were worked on at some point resulting in the opening of the flange to be reduced and thus the toilet not sitting properly. This became more noticeable after I removed vinyl tiles from the original hex flooring as seen in the picture. I may have made...

    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?

    I'm re-doing my bathroom. Getting ready to pour SLC before tiling, and found one bolt on the toilet flange is loose. Will be raising the floor level by 1" total, so I was planning on getting a flange extender (what was there before was just 2 wax rings stacked). Will a flange extender also...

    I'm in the process of installing a bathroom in my basement and I've run into some trouble with the toilet. The toilet was roughed in when the house was built and the previous owners built a wooden subfloor, covering the toilet drain. Luckily they were smart enough to mark the drain location...

    I have gutted my basement bathroom and am in the process of re-doing the whole thing. I removed the old tile floor and instead of replacing it, I decided to acid etch, stain, and seal the concrete. Now I noticed that the flange is 5/8 of an inch above the new floor level. I am planning on using...

    Hello all, I am doing a complete renovation of the downstairs bathroom (thanks to some fun water damage…) and would like to rotate the toilet 90 degrees. After perusing the web for a while, it seems like I am going to run into some code issues for toilet flange location if I turn the...

    Hi I am renovating a bathroom. I just removed the old floor tile to find that the sublfoor is in 2 parts. 1 part 1/2 inch particle board and the other half is self levelling cement. The toilet flange is screwed into the self levelling cement. I have removed a lot of the cement around it. The...

    Planning a bathroom update. Would like to remove existing ceramic tiles (lousy DIY job by previous owner), and replace with sheet vinyl. Cement slab base. Will also be replacing toilet. Contractors are saying the flange will have to be changed because of flooring height difference. Is this...

    I'm setting a toilet for our new basement bathroom. When cutting the pipe (3" ABS), so the flange is at the right height, the pipe broke. Is there a way to fix this without having to break the floor up? The pipe is attached to a flexible coupling that was used to extend the pipe from the...

    Hello, I have just finalized the installation of a new toilet closet flange. The flange is not perfectly levelled. There's a 1/8" difference between the left side and the right side. I know this should be ok with most toilets but do you think it's necessary to try to level it ? I'm a...
