Toilet flange


Recommended Posts

Anyone know if the toilet flange that the toilet bolts to come right out or is it usually glued in or screwed in? Mine doesn’t allow me to bolt my toilet down very tight. It’s blown out some, where the bolts slide in. Wondering if anyone knew what kind of job I was getting into to replace that?

They are standard plumbing fittings the only difference is the material for the flange seal do not use a standard wax toilet seal there are ones just for RV's they don't melt in hot weather!

So do you know if it’s just slightly pressed in or threaded in or glued in? My fear is it might be glued in. My new toilet will come with the foam seal ring. But my flange is blown out some and needs to be replaced.

If it’s a standard residential toilet flange you can buy repair kits at most hardware and big box stores. Don’t try to pry or remove what’s there. They’re usually bonded to a DVW fitting.

Well I now see this post lol. I got the old flange off and put on a twist flange. The new one is on, hope I didn’t crack anything tho. It’s on tight.  I will say the rubber pipe coming up from the holding tank seemed Malleable still.  So I should be ok. The old flange was cracked and almost all my screws were rusted out and really not holding the flange down.
