In response to Re: toilet flange
: Hi,
: I am renovating an old bathroom in an apartment. I tore up the floor which was about 2 1/2 inches of plaster over floor boards and plan on replacing it with 1/2 inch wonderboard. This will effectively "lower" the floor two inches. The problem is that my old lead pipe and toilet flange will be too high for the lower floor. Can a plumber cut down the pipe and resolder a new flange? Or do you have another solution?
: Thanks.


It could be a problem if the drainage line that serves this flange is too high to cut out the old flange and lower it. In fact, it may not even be possible. A plumber will need to look at this and advise you on your options.
