get an "ID" (that is Inside Diameter) pipe wrench. they are available at most good hardware stores. this will allow you to turn the flange from the inside.
If leaking at toilet flange, wax ring needs replaced.
Broken toilet flange. Toilet flange bolts may be loose.
What is actually broken the flnge ring rusted out and broke or the abs pipe? Abs pipe/flange broken: Use a ram bit to cut it out and install a new one. http://www.plumbingsupply.com/pvcsaver.html use a compression or expansion flange http://www.plumbingsupply.com/toiletflanges.html or just cut the pipe and put in a new one Flange ring rusted/broken: install a toilet flange repair ring or a spanner flange.
flange valves are useful because lets say in your sink the faucet is leaking you can use the flange valve to stop the water and repair the sink without having to turn the water for your whole house off.
An "unlevel" toilet flange might be a little difficult for a wax ring to seal, but could not in any way be responsible for a tank leak. If the tank is leaking between the tank and bowl, remove the tank, check the tank itself for a crack or defect, then check the flange gasket and tank bolts and gaskets. How do you know your flange is unlevel?
Most likely not, depending on the type of pipe you can find an inside flange to fit.
It needs to be bolted to prevent liquid and gases from leaking into the room.
I removed the broken flange by perforating the lead filling between the drain pipe and the flange - i.e., drilling holes every 1/4-1/2 inch or so with a regular drill and then sawing through the filling with a power saber saw. Then pried the flange off with a pry bar. Wasn't as bad as I expected. - Dan
Install a ty fitting on the stack in the basement then run it to the sink. Put it low enough to account for a fall in the pipe, to allow proper drainage. Be sure to install a waste and vent pipe to code for both fixtures.
Usually a leak at the flange means a crack in the neck of bottle. It may be more cost effective to just fit a new one. About $15 in HD.
The flange is there mainly to anchor the toilet to the floor. There is a replacement or repair ring available to fix this kind of problem. They are either brass or steel. Cut the rest of the ABS flange off flush with the floor and install the new ring by screwing it down to the floor with either concrete plugs and screws or there are screws available that will screw directly into the concrete. Make sure the new ring is in the right place so that the slots for the toilet anchor bolts are on the sides of the hole.
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 .
The broken bolt can be blown out by someone who knows how to use a torch - muffler-shop
If only the top part where the bolts go into is broken, you can use a compression retro flange that will slide into the existing 4" cast iron. This will go right over the old one. If this makes it to high, cut the top of the old flange off and use the compression.
I would check the Flange gasket. It is the gasket that sits between your exaust manifold and your exaust pipes
You can use tap-cons.
Slip-On Flat Face Flange. It means the face of the flange, the surface the physically touches the next flange is flat as opposed to raised (SORF Flange)
If it is leaking next to where the lower radiator hose attaches to the engine, the water pump has failed. That hole is the water pump weep hole.
I know that it is usually suffcient to just glue it,just make sure your mesurements are on point, but if you must be anal use sheilds and screw. Either or. joe hojas
Not. There's no way to connect a WNF to an RTJ flange.
Raised face flange end
The term"counter flange" is used in Europe to refer to a mating flange to make up a flange pair. For example a "counter flange" attached to a pipe must have the same bolt circle diameter, number of bolts, and size of bolts and pressure rating at the equipment nozzle flange provided by an equipment manufacturer.
Then you need to get either a bigger floor flange, or a toilet with a smaller flange.
