Uh, oh, I installed it and now need to shim beneath it. I don't want to shim on top since that's a classic leak setup. Can this be pulled back out?
Well, if no one answers I'll give it a try. It went in very tight. Good design but is it reversible? Hah!

Answer: 
Yes it comes out, just wiggle it. But also you could put a spacer rings on top of it. they are 1/4'' thick add as many as you need to bring it up to the level. you can use your flange to hold screws for the toilet or you can put metal bracket (~1/16'' thick) on top of the spacers just for the toilet screws.

It was tight, but it's designed to be. And it was so full of you know what from the sewer pipe that I tossed it and went to Home Depot and got another one! Fortunately I had installed it with plumbing lubricant to get it in, and that was probably the only reason it came back out.
Anyway, this is an absolutely fantastic product, and after i shimmed on the original flange and slipped it over, bingo! The toilet set easily and the job is done.
Thanks again!

Answer: 
Hey Rocket,
You can try pouring (small amounts) of cooking oil or a lubricant like that around where the flange slides into the existing pipe. Then try wiggling on the flange, while pulling up at the same time. The lubricant should help with it sliding out easier.
Figure out how much shim you need to put under it before putting it back in the pipe.
Im not sure if you have wood flooring around Read More

Im not sure if you have wood flooring around the pipe or concrete. If it's wood, try to screw the shim into the wood floor, then screw the flange into the shim to keep the toilet from rocking once it's installed!

Answer: 
Assuming that your old flange goes on outside of the drain pipe: just cut old flange above the drain pipe and stick this one in. If old one goes inside - try chisel out the rim that is left inside the drain pipe after you cut the top off. There are videos of that trick in youtube.

This is not easy to answer. I'm thinking that if the original flange is in that bad shape the sewer line might be in equally bad shape. Some people will tell you to break off the old flange and install a new one. Some will tell you to put this over the top. Either way it doesn't address the possibility that if the flange is in such bad shape the entire cast iron sewer line from there on could also be Read More
This is not easy to answer. I'm thinking that if the original flange is in that bad shape the sewer line might be in equally bad shape. Some people will tell you to break off the old flange and install a new one. Some will tell you to put this over the top. Either way it doesn't address the possibility that if the flange is in such bad shape the entire cast iron sewer line from there on could also be cracking and leaking, which only gets worse with time.
One thing you might consider is scoping the entire line all the way to the street with a camera. You can buy one or rent one, but i think a professional plumber doing the scoping would be able to make a better decision on the sewer line's condition than you can. There are sleeves/liners that can be installed the length of the sewer line to the sewer main on the street, if scoping shows that's necessary. Not extremely expensive.
Anyway, you can break off the flange and install this sleeve over the end of the pipe, screw it into the slab with tapcons, and it will work. Or you can put this over the deteriorated flange and screw through it and into the slab with tapcons. Either way will work. But I advise checking out your sewer line's condition. You really don't want it leaking sewage into the soil under the home.

Answer: 
If the existing flange is all rusty and in bad shape, I'd take it off of the pipe it rests on. It probably was put on with melted lead. Carefully break pieces of the old flange with a screw driver and hammer. Pull it off. The new flange should slide into the existing pipe once you have the old flange off. Just made sure when you put the new flange in, to leave the new flange setting about 1/4 inch above Read More

Answer: 
It fits into a 4" cast iron pipe so I assume it will do the same for PVC since the inside diameters should be the same. This flange (I'm also assuming this flange is a Sioux Chief Closet Flange--the photo doesn't show the manufacturer) has an inside diameter of 3 1/2 inches. It's more than enough for a good flush, and more than the code requirement (in most places) of 3". They make a 3" too, just FYI. Read More

Works very well, just add a little plumbing lubricant and if necessary tap it in with a rubber mallet.

Answer: 
Just a plain wax ring without a plastic sleeve. I should say an original wax ring, the kind all used to be before the idea of adding a sleeve came along. The sleeve generally helps, but you have to be careful it doesn't get in the way of the flange and hang up the toilet.
Good luck!

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Great product. Inner diameter of my cast iron pipe is 3 3/4. This fit inside perfectly. Screw into the wood with wood screws and it was really solid. If the piece going in to the cast iron is to long, you can cut it to size with a hacksaw! Saved the day! Happy Flushing! April 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works! This 4inch gasket closet flange was exactly what I needed. I am a female and I had no problem installing this and the toilet. So glad Home Depot had it in stock. June 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good solution to an old copper drain pipe I did not use the 4 inch version of this product, but the 3 inch version. Worked exactly the same. The problem came with the gasket (wax ring options). First, I tried the latest fluidmaster with no wax. Well their insert will no fit properly into the 3 inch insert flange. It has too big of a diameter (3 inches). Next I figured I could try Danco perfect seal toilet ring. The seal would work with the flange, but it was too thick even with the expansion ring. The toilet would be too far up off the floor. Now my toilet might be partly to blame. It has a 3/4 inch insert for the drain. So, the cheapest, simplest solution worked, a naked wax ring. The three inch unit needs to have warnings about these issues. June 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect solution This worked perfect to slide inside a 4 cast iron sewer pjpe. The old flange appeared to be lead. Just make sure you mount this as flush to the floor (or youll have to shim the toilet) perfect! October 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked on a really old pipe. I live in an old house, was replacing the toilet and discovered a really poor flange installation that was rusted, loose and wasn't even sealed in the pipe. Whoever installed that is a criminal and deserves severe punishment for putting my and the previous owner's health at risk. I have zero experience as a plumber, did some online research and browsing, saw this, looked good. I like the triple fin design. Installed it easily, snug fit, seems like an airtight seal now so sewer gas can't leak out, good to go. Picked up some 2" #10 stainless steel sheet metal screws to secure it down, did the job, but you could actually go a size up if you wanted. April 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fixed the problem. This provided an xtremely easy fix for an original flange that was facing the wrong direction and could not be turned. This worked like a dream... but the wax ring wouldn't fit so I will have to go with a "naked" wax ring. I'm actually surprised the Home Depot rep didn't recommend this first. July 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great on 4" Lead Pipe Had an old 4" lead pipe that had nothing to attach a flange to. This slid in with a great snug fit. The red gaskets prevent smell from coming back from the pipe. I glued this down with alot of liquid nails. Let dry for 24 hours before replacing toilet. When I put toilet down I liberally applied alot a silicone and secured the toilet to the floor. Let that dry for nearly 36 hours. You could dance on my toilet. It is solid to the floor and doesn't wobble or leak. January 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best solution for many difficult problems I've had multiple situations in which this was the only commercial product that could do the job. If there's a right angle bend in the sewer line right below the floor, you can't use most other internal flanges because they would go in too deep and block the pipe at the bend. But with this one, you can remove the gasket, trim the PVC to just the right length, put the gasket back on, and force the flange in for a perfect fit. I have done this to put flanges on lead and copper sewer lines where the only other alternative would have been to rip up the floor. It would be nice if there were also a version of this product with epoxy putty for a permanent attachment, but the rubber gaskets on these have not failed me so far. October 14, 2013
