    Default replacing closet flange - not much pipe to work with!

    here's my issue -- i am replacing a subfloor before a new tile job and intend to replace the closet flange after the tile floor is down. i am concerned with the lack of pvc pipe that will be available to work with after removing the old flange.

    suggestions will be must appreciated!

    Talking what is the problem???

    you have a football field to work with


    all you have to do is cut it back on the horizontal
    run and then just put a new coupling, new elbow
    and new toilet flange....and about a foot or so of new pipe...

    thanks for the assist!

    i wasn't sure if going all the way back to the horizontal was the "proper" thing to do. i guess that's why you are master plumber mark and i am the newbie!
