    We stay far away from Draino. Our techs carry Bio Clean on their trucks and also sell it to our customers. We love the stuff over here and we never have a problem selling it.

    Can't say I've had a problem like that. Usually when I tighten the mess out of the screws, they stay tight.

    You should be fine. If it would make you feel better, you could use a thicker wax ring or double up on the small ones.

    If going through the foundation, we have used pvc pipe to sleeve it. If coming through a slab, we have used foam and roof felt.

    A two-piece flange would work if its the right one. If it becomes too much, I'd advise to call a plumber.

    If it were me, I would put down the floor then put the flange in. I believe it would be a lot easier that way as well, seeing that you can access it from below.

    Replace it. The warranty is probably expired and if you spend money to fix it and it doesn't fix, then your out more money. I would suggest a new heater.

    Crowbar sounds like a bad idea. You could possibly do more damage that way. I agree with John. If it's possible, I would go in from below if possible.
