In response to Re: toilet flange installation for remodel
Kevin:--Lead joints are a thing of the past..it requires special tools and techniques to do it properly. Your best bet is to find a plumbing supply house that has a 3" closet flange that is installed inside the 4" pipe, and the seal is accomplished by tightening the bolts that compress a neoprene gasket against the inside diameter of the existing 4" pipe. Lots of luck with your project....Bud...
: I am remodeling a bathroom and I need to install a toilet flange on the existing cast iron waste pipe.
: The existing pipe had the original flange cut off at floor level by a plumber. The remaining pipe looks
: to be 4 inches in diameter.

: I looked at different plumbing supply stores but it was not clear how I would attach a new flange
: to the existing pipe or even what type of flange to use.

: I heard something about plumbers using molten lead to make this type connection but I have not found
: any information regarding this.

: So, can someone fill me in on how this is accomplished.

: Thanks,

: Kevin
