    Default Are you tough enough?

    One of these is one day going into my 1950s basement rough.

    Is it tough enough? I know you do not like to use the plastic ones but I see little alternative for my cast iron application.

    Oatey makes a cast version.

    I consider myself an accomplished DIY'er. I don't know everything but help where I can. I'm not a pro, but like to think I'm professional.

    They get used here 99.9% of the time and get replaced a few years down the road due to breaking.

    Default flange

    add a few more 9's to the decimal and you will have the percentage of broken ones which ARE plastic. A new cast iron flange is the proper installation, therefore the one you describe is not the "only" solution.
