|In response to Re: concrete floor toliet installation|
: I'm attempting to install a new toilet in my basement.
: Old toilet cracked and mounting flange rusted away.
: Left with copper pipe that is flush with concrete.
: Do I have to break out cement, cut copper pipe and convert (via a rubber boot) to plastic?
: Or can I just attach a new mounting ring to concrete and go?
: Should I be concerned that this may leak?
: What is best/easiest thing to do?
Paul the best thing to do is get a copper sweat floor flange and solder the new one on. If the copper is 4" (which i doubt) they have a flange that will slip inside the pipe and lock down with set screws, used for pvc and cast iron,not sure if it is good for copper. come to think of it it's not. the set screws will put a hole in the copper probably.
