Toilet flange on slab.

busboyJune 9, 2010

More toilet issues! The basement toilet was rocking. I removed the toilet and found a crack in the flange. A kit can repair that. The flange is sitting up off the tile on slab about 1/4 inch and the flange is not secured, that is it has play in it. So, best way to secure it? Masonary screws is the likly answer, but I am concerned about the spacing between the flange and the slab. Should I screw it down and load the space with caulk, or hydraulic cement? As I said the flange is sitting up quite a bit so I am concerned the bottom of the toilet might rest ON the flange squeezing out all the wax on the ring. There is evidence of leaking as well. Thanks

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Anchors in the slab to hold the flange tight.
