Help With Toilet Floor Flange

I thought I had my toilet odor problems solved when I found the gasket was up side down and not seated properly. Upon closer examination I found the PO has busted the toilet floor flange and tried to fix it with a stainless steel "cheater" ring. Pieces of the floor flange are missing and it has large cracks. I have tried to get the flange pulled out or twisted out but to no avail.

Found this item on ebay and was wondering if anyone has tried it. I'm thinking of cutting the floor flange off and, as I understand it, this should slip into the 3" pipe and give me a new flange.

What do you think?

Looks like a reasonable option. Only questions would be if you have enough pipe to slip the repair part down into and whether the pipe will be supported well once you have removed the floor connection. Myself I would get a dremel and cut off the old one and give it a try. At this point I don't think you have much to loose. Be sure to come back and let us know how it works out.

I had a broken toilet flange too. The cause was a sagging OSB platformed, water-damaged from leaks, which allowed the weight of the toilet (and its occupants) to flex the plastic until it broke. When I rebuilt the platform for the new flange, I reinforced it with 2x lumber.

One thing to look for with the new flange, assuming you are using a threaded one that screws to the pipe, is to get the right components so that the flange is the male part of the threaded connection. From the factory, mine was the opposite. The female-threaded flange screwed to the outside of the pipe, ensuring that any leak past the threads went into the floor and the waste-tank bay below. Stupid...

Carefull some of these the waste pipe is glued right into the waste tank twisting and pulling could break it. What is exactly broken? The metal ring that goes around the flange? If so just get a spanner repair ring.





You don't even need that metal ring on the flange. Just mark and drill in a couple lag screws.

Mike, on mine the plastic flange that fits down into the plastic pipe had been chipped out and cracked about a third of the way around the flange. The cracks extended below the seal and were very weak.
I ended up cutting off the flange about an inch below the floor and using one of the Push-Tite flanges shown below. I found it at Menards for $11.00 without the metal ring. Installed it and everything is good now.
