    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...

    Moving toilet rough-in

    I currently have about a 15-inch rough-in and have rejected the Toto Unifit offerings because of the other specs (specifically, we want a round bowl and a seat height no more than 16 inches), so I'm looking at moving the rough-in and installing a Toto Eco Ultramax. I have easy access to the...

    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...

    Toilet overflowing every 5-8 flushes

    I have an older toilet in my apartment. For the last couple of months, every fifth to eighth flush the water will not go down (even if it is just the toilet water in there) and will rise up to the rim and sometimes over. I have to use the plunger to get it to go down, and all I do is give it...
