|In response to Re: Intalling a toilet over carpet? - more info|
: : I just had a dense berber sytle carpet installed over concrete slab in new basement bathroom. I assume that I'll have to cut away the carpet to install the closet flange, but what about for toilet base. Can/should that sit on the carpet or do I cut around the entire base for the toilet to sit directly on the concrete? Also how do you recommend attaching the flange to the concrete. I have 3" PVC cut flush with concrete slab.
Thanks very much! What a great resource!
There is cardboard around the PVC, but it's in the concrete, so I'm not sure how easy it will come out. Can't I get a flange that will go inside the 3" pipe? I think it might also be hard to get the PVC cement down around the pipe. Also, on the vanity, should I cut the carpet around that before the install or can/should that cabinet go on the carpet? It's a small 16x18 cabinet for the washbowl.
Thanks again! Your's is the best site on the web for plumbing help!
