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

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.

The standard position for a toilet paper holder - should be 8-12 inches in front of the toilet and 26 inches (centerline) above the floor.

Eye level. Something to look at when you're going.

How high does the toilet overflow pipe need to be in a standard residential toilet?

Either high water pressure above 80 PSI. or a defective valv.e

Normally whether use the forged flange or cast flange depends on the design code, material, pressure, temperature, stress strength and medium of the piping system. It has been decided since the beginning of the design. If forged flange is chosen, it is very dangerous for you to use cast flange due to its much lower strength and other mechanical&chemical performance. If cast flange is chosen, it is not sensible to change it to forged flange because of the high cost. Visit Hebei Metals Industrial Limited website for more information about the forged flange. www.metalsflange.com

let it out and hope that theres a lot of toilet paper

The toilet should have a 3" drain coming from the toilet and has to leave the room some where. When it passes the wall you can put a 3"x 2"x 3"sanitary tee( which should be going with the flow)and have vent stack running along the interior of the wall this may involve tearing out the drywall. Then just tie the vent on to an existing one. Keep in mind; the vent can be 2", and the vent can be no more than 4' away from the center of the toilet drain.

The pH of toilet cleaners will vary greatly depending on what it is. Most toilet cleaners have a pH between 9 and 13, which is high.

Place it appx 42" (aff) above finished floor. Be sure it is depth is no more than the depth of the tank top so you do not hit your head when standing up

There is no set rule on how high a shelf should be hung over a toilet. A good rule of thumb is, high enough that no one will hit their head.

You have a grinder pump that boosts the sewage up to the main floor to enter the drain system. The float in this pump system is not working correctly and the standing water level in the tank is too high. Adjust the float, it will cure your issue.

it smoked to much.. Its clogged

Yes it is.Always drain the water in winter or look for a new pool to buy because the damages will be of high standards.

You want the drain pipe for a kitchen sink at least 18" above the floor. You do not want it any closer or it might be kicked, or damaged during building or installing the faucet pieces.

Probably the drain hose from the dishwasher isn't high enough to keep the water from running back . The hose should be above the level of the disposal at some point. Some states require an "air gap" which is a device that is placed in the drain line to prevent this. Some states require a simple high loop in the drain hose. Many dishwasher manufacturers are now installing backflow preventers in the dishwasher.

Why would you drain your pool just becasue the water is hot? Never drain your inground pool unless you have first cut holes in the bottom of the pool to keep it from floating. If the water table in your area is high enough, your inground pool could "float" out of the ground, effectively ruining your pool.

RING TYPE JOINT FLANGE The ring type joint flange metal is used for leak proof process. It is a part of steel. Sometimes the pressure becomes high at that time the ring type joint flange is using. A metal ring is compressed like a seal helps to high-pressure leak proof. THREADED RING FLANGE In threaded ring flange welding is not needed. It is threaded or screwed into another. It is used in low pressure and it can connect only with other threaded material. LAP JOINT RING FLANGE Lap joint includes a stub end or taft. The lap joint is very easy to assemble and align because it is used in low pressure only. A hub is included in a lap joint ring flange but some will not provide to reduce the cost. BLIND RING FLANGE Blind ring flanges are not connectors they are like stoppers. Blind ring flanges are blank because they are used in the end or fitting for periodical inspection only. SOCKET WELD RING FLANGE In socket weld ring flanges the bore of pipe and the flanges both are same, it helps to provide the good flow. The receiver pipe also bored because the socket weld flange and the receiver pipe should tighten. WELD NECK RING FLANGE In weld neck ring flange the boring area and the flanges must be matched to avoid problems inside the pipe. In critical applications the weld neck is durable. SLIP-ON RING FLANGE The slip-on ring flanges don't have neck, it only has a molding area to fit with the pipe. In fabricated applications, the slip-on ring flange is very easy to use. for more check jfindustries

You will either have to break up the concrete to tie into the under-slab main waste pipe, or you will need to build a subfloor high enough to run the drain pipes underneath, and then connect into the main drain above grade. Keep in mind that you will need some amount of fall (slope) on the pipe, and that you will also need to tie in to the vent stack, or run a new vent through the roof. This should be 4"ABS for a toilet, and 1 1/2" - 2"ABS for a sink or shower.

it has to be as high as the concrete you plan to pour or have poured. and yes it needs to be vented. but if you connect into existing lines it will lead to a vent you dont need to run a pipe all the way up your house and out your roof.Well the code books I read state that before one just connects to an existing vent pipe they should know the fixture units connected and the developed length of piping and fitting as to not over load the systems BUT to each their own I reckon...

Ingested drain cleaner is a corrossive substance do not induce vomiting.Acidity is high.

Since there would be no toilet to go to (assuming this high mountain is barren of man-made appliances), one would have to urinate/defecate as a dog would. Enjoy.
