Usually toilet flange is glued down onto plastic drain pipe. There is a toilet flange that can be glued inside of plastic drain pipe also.

The toilet flange sits on the floor and connects the toilet to the drain. It should connect to both.

Then you need to get either a bigger floor flange, or a toilet with a smaller flange.

Yes. It is how the toilet is attached to the drain line.

Yes, and screw it to the floor in the screw holes at edge of flange.

Probably the wrong size flange. Is the flange a toilet collar? If so the pipe is probably 4 inch.

Broken toilet flange. Toilet flange bolts may be loose.

Square a flange? Lol there is many hundereds of types of flanges so I don't know what flange you are talking about. If its a toilet flange and you want the toilet bolt holes equal to the wall (if its PVC or abs) just use a big pair of pliers or pipe wrench to turn it soon after you glue your flange.

The toilet flange is usually above the floor level. You would have to cut it off the drain pipe and cap it. How you do this depends on what type of pipe the drain is made of. Even if the drain should be below the floor level, you have to seal the drain or sewer gas will come up from the drain.

The bolts that come from the drain and run to to toilet help to alaign proper drainage and seal the toilet. You do not want to do the bolts set in cement idea...

if it is a PVC flange glued on to the outside of 3" PVC pipe, there is a tool available that will cut it off and you can glue a new flange on the undamaged pipe. It's called a Flange-off. Available at Locke plumbing supply.

yes using a fitting called a double santee or double y or double combo or a cross , when snaking out a toilet drain from a toilet flange and you have back to back toilets be careful not to run your snake into the other toilet.

15 inches from outside edge of tub to center of toilet flange.

You can't fill a toilet drain not in use as there is no 'trap' to fill with water. The best thing is to get a toilet flange cover from a plumbing store and install it on the toilet flange - i.e. the circular fitting in the floor that the toilet would normally sit on.By simple pouring a few gallons of cold water to replenish the trap seal of the fixture .. check it every few weeks to make sure there is still water above the crown weir

12-13 inches to the center of the drain.... make sure your drain pipe is 1/4 inch drop per foot. also use the sweeping y drain if possible. leave lots of room for the flange. mount the toilet after the floor is in.

A compression flange is used to connect a toilet to the sewer line.

Change how? Move the location, you bust out the concrete and move it. Replace or repair the flange that the toilet hooks to. Cut the existing flange off flush with the floor and install a new repair flange. They can be brass or steel. You can use a PVC one that fits in the drain and seal it with a wax ring under it and screw it to the floor. If you are working with cast iron flange and the slots where the bolts are supposed to go is broken out, they make a repair piece for this. It is a 3/4 inch wide by 3-4 inch long crescent shape piece that slides under the flange and the bolt that holds the toilet fits into it. You may have to chip out a little concrete along the edge to get these under the flange.

the sink drain is the would have to get a wall mount commode,or install drain in floor and plug drain in wallAnswerYou also need a 3 or 4 inch drainpipe.Ans 3 - You can do this if you fit a new 3" drain to the main pipe and run it to a toilet flange where the sink is.

you need about 12.5" from a finished wall to the center of the toilet flange. you need about 12.5" from a finished wall to the center of the toilet flange.

Yes, they have toilet flange extension kits, either Google it or check plumbing or hardware store.

depending on your type of flange and pipe and the damage of the flange, if you have a PVC flange with just the bolt slots busted then you can screw in new bolts to the floor below the flange and still use the flange but if its broken where the wax seal sits then if your flange is lower then the floor you can use a insert flange that fits inside your old toilet flange with thin walls to keep the pipe size maximum. To replace the entire flange can be a job especially if its in concrete or in a floor joist because most of the time you have no room and if its cast iron pipe it can be even more of headache but in order to replace the flange you need to cut it out to where you can reconnect the pipe and flange by using a fernco or a no hub band. Sometimes it is impossible to replace because the flange can be on all close fittings and you pretty much have to replace most of the plumbing drain pipe to replace it properly which is why you want to try repairing your toilet flange rather then replacing it .

1. Loosen the 2 nuts that are located on each side of the toilet. Place them in a safe location, because you will need them to remount the toilet.2. Lift the toilet. Set it in a place where the rest of the water can drain from it, such as a shower or bathtub.3. Clean the wax from the flange seal, and then remove the screws that attach it to the floor.4. Measure the pipe that comes out of the floor so that you purchase the correct size. You will need to buy a new flange, a new section of pipe with the same diameter as the old pipe, a pipe coupling, a new wax ring and PVC glue if you do not have any.5. Cut off the flange at the red line. This can be done, from inside the pipe, using a Dremel tool with a reinforced disk for cutting.

When a toilet rocks like a rocking chair, leaks water around the floor connection or displays other signs of insecure foundation, the toilet flange needs replaced or reset. A toilet flange is the metal plate located below the toilet which connects the toilet with the sewer outlet pipe while securing the toilet with the floor. When a toilet is initially constructed it is secured to the floor with screws and the junction is sealed with a liberal application of beeswax. When a toilet is securely fastened and maintained properly, proper function including no water leakage or odor present is the norm and not the exception. An indication of possible need of attention is the presence of black mold on the floor near the base of the toilet. Also evidence of water leakage or an unpleasant odor originating from the toilet base is a reliable indicator of the need for a toilet flange repair. Regardless of who does the repair of a toilet flange, the following criterion is paramount for a job well done. It is also important to follow certain procedures, from diagnosis to completion of the job. Tools and materials: screws, screw driver, flange bolts, wax rings, caulk and a flange repair kit. Remove the Toilet: After shutting the water supply to the toilet, flush the toilet water from the tank and bowl before releasing the toilet from its floor connection. Unscrew the bolts and nuts on the sides of the toilet base. Secure the bowl and tank and lift the toilet from the floor connection. Repair the Toilet Flange: Old wax must be cleaned off from the old flange. Flange bolts may need replaced due to corrosion from water leakage. Position the flange bolts in the holes of the repair kit and place it on the floor as the previous flange setup. This step ensures proper placement of the flange and prevent leakage. Fix the Flange and Toilet: Follow manual instructions of the original toilet manufacturer when screwing the flange to the floor. Place wax rings and remount the toilet with bolts and nuts.

flange-off tool....Call Locke Supply...they carry it

it can cost from as little as 100 to as much as 1000 depending who does it and what is actually wrong. if the flange is cast iron it will be more. if it is glued abs or pvc and the drain is broke thats gonna cost more than 200. you may not need to actually repalce the flange and you may be able to use a metal repair bracket. If the flange is unrepairable its a dirty job and if the flange is glued that means the drain has to get cut back and then coupled and extended. and remember plumbers dont fix walls. so any holes made wont be their resonsiblity to fix.
