OK, this is probably a simple question, but here it is anyway :o
Are there special screws to use to screw the closet flange to the plywood floor?
If not what type of screw is correct to use?
I'm no expert, but I think you should useing stainless steel or brass wood screws so that there is no risk of rust.

Stainless steel is my preference.

Thanks guys. Is there a particular size that is used?
I recently used 2" long #10 stainless wood screws to mount a toilet flange, but it looks like #12 would also easily have fit.

I'd use the largest diameter that the flange would take. They should be long enough to go through the subfloor.
