In response to Re: Toilet on slab? Any plumbing supply house can sell you flange extenders that are about 3/8
: : I'm adding a second bathroom on the ground floor of my house. The bath was roughed in
: : by the original builder (mid 70's) yet never completed.

: : The toilet flange is not flush with the concrete floor but instead sits about 1/2" below the
: : level of the floor. Adding to this gap, I was hoping to put an underlayment on top of the
: : concrete as well.

: : My question is ...

: : Is it possible / advisable to add a vertical extension to a closet bend? Or do I need to bust
: : up the concrete and raise the entire closet bent upward?

: :
: : My instinct is to do the latter but I'm wondering what's standard practice.

: : Thanks.
