    I know, replacing the whole flange would be ideal... but it's just not in my skillset or budget right now. So the repair ring is going to have to get the job done for me. :) It's just a matter of...

    No one has any thoughts on the Fernco wax-free seal or the Set-Rite kit (compared to using regular wax or extended or stacked wax rings)?

    The flange is embedded in the concrete. And the bolts were NOT in the proper slots on the left &...
  7. Fernco Wax-Free Seal VS. plain wax ring VS. wax + black plastic flange?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm installing my first toilet (couldn't afford the Toto like we wanted, so we went with the American Standard Cadet 3 "Flush Right"), and the instructions say to use a wax ring. So...

    Moving toilet 4 to 6 inches to the side?

    Well, crap. We've run into another issue with a new Drake toilet. There is a 4" PVC pipe extending from ceiling to floor right next to the existing toilet. It's about half an inch from the left...

    Heh, so just as we were getting ready to order a Toto Drake for our house, a relative mentioned that if we were on the lower level of the house, we'd need a toilet that "flushed up".
