    Default Remodeling bathroom - new closet flange to cast iron pipe

    We are remodeling a 50 year old bathroom. The house has cast iron piping. If I were to replace everything under the toilet (except for the cast iron pipe) with new stuff, what all needs replacing? Is it just the closet flange. How does a closet flange attach to the cast iron?

    there are a number of flanges, adapters and such that will make the transition. Without a picture, I can't tell you which is best.

    the best way is to get a pvc twist-n-set flange it works great used it many times.

    Default fllange

    And WHAT makes you think you have to replace the flange in the first place? If you do, the best replacement is another one with a lead/oakum joint.
