    Issue with installing a new flange for the toilet. Advice needed on moving forward...

    My toilet started leaking a bit ago, and it has progressively gotten worse. Upon removing the toilet one of the closet bolts has broken, so I have to replace the flange. However, the flange isn't set in there like a normal flange, and I'm not sure how to move forward. If you notice in the...

    Magical toilet floating in the air

    . Hello. I am not a plumber. I'm just some schmuck who thought he could figure things out on his own. And while the toilet replacement went reasonably well, there is one problem. The previous toilet had a 1950s manufacturing date and sat nice and flat on the floor. The flange is ABS and so I...

    Garbage disposal flange too short for farmhouse sink

    I am trying to install a Waste King garbage disposal below a farmhouse sink. It is not working because the flange that came with the disposal is too short.

    Redoing toilet flange over tile with a 4" + drop to the drain pipe

    I tried to install a used american standard toilet into my new house from my old house that worked fine, but the horn is about 3.25in wide and the opening of the pipe in the flange is 3 in. What should I do? I was thinking one of two things: Buy a new toilet (probably upgrade to a Toto) Or...

    Rusted flange, need to replace?

    We had our bathroom re-tiled and now need to reinstall the toilet. Subfloor is concrete. The flange looks rusted and we aren't sure it will bolt down the toilet and be secure (see pic below). Are we ok to just add spacers to get to the right height and reinstall or does this flange need to be...

    Smell at base of toilet ONLY during mild temps (around 60 degrees)

    Bought a 1950s Cape last August and immediately remodeled the main floor bathroom. Put a new toilet in (a cheap dual-flush model from Sam's Club--which might be the problem but I'll continue) and had some water around the base after a few days. Since the pipe is cast iron leading to PVC in the...
