Answer: 
Yes. Concrete screw have different hold patterns. Regular screws may work but will work itself out after a while. Use the EXACT drill bit recommended for the screw size. For concrete, unlike wood or steel, there is hardly any tolerance for smaller/larger sizes. You'll need a hammer drill for drilling as well.

Answer: 
Yes, you need to. I tried using the included screws and they were not up to the job, plus my regular drill bits didn't even nick the tile. Get a 5/32" masonry bit and an 8 pack of Tapcon 3/16" x 1 3/4" concrete anchors. Both will cost you around $15 but there's no way around it if you have to mount into tile/concrete, as I did.

Answer: 
I always use the extra thick one but a standard size will work too. The HYDROSEAT is designed to be used with the rubber gasket funnel only to seal it to the toilet. You place 1 wax ring between the HYDROSEAT and flange is all that is usually required. The top of the HYDROSEAT will seal to the bottom of the toilet with the rubber gasket.

Answer: 
It would be best for you to use a wax ring that does not have the rubber funnel. The Hydroseat Toilet flange already has the funnel attached to and therefore you do not need a wax ring with it. I would recommend getting the extra thick wax ring, which will assure you have more than enough wax available to complete the job.

Silicone ring between Hydroseat and toilet?

This question is from HydroSeat Toilet Flange Repair
Asked by

September 7, 2014
A wax ring goes between this product and the flange, rather than between it and the toilet. I know it's made to work this way, but it still makes me a little nervous. Would adding a ring of silicone caulk between the Hydroseat and the toilet be advisable? Or at least not have any negative effects?

For you second question, no adding caulk, silicone or another product should not have an adverse affect on how the Hydroseat flange will perform. I don't see the need for it, but it makes you more comfortable, then by all means use it. Read Less

Answer: 
This has a suction type ring seal which makes an additional seal unnecessary but if you do use silicone it might interfere with that seal when it hardens. I would imagine you could use a standard size wax ring if you want which would not cause any problems.

HydroSeat Toilet Flange Repair is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy fix I am trying this on a flange that about 1/3 of it broke off. It's about 75 years old. The repair kit needs a solid floor to screw the new flange to. One problem could be that a wood floor may be damaged from a leaking flange. Concrete floors should not be a problem with the proper fasteners. All you need is this kit and a very basic wax ring. Clean the old flange first, including scraping any corrosion off. put a wax ring on the old flange, then screw down the Hydroseat. Clean the bottom of the toilet, install the flange bolts, then place the toilet on the new flange and bolt it down. Don't put a wax ring between the toilet and the new flange. it has a rubber seal built in, and is a lot easier to install than a wax ring on the toilet. This should save us a lot of money in the future with other rentals.

I watched all these YouTube videos about melting lead and wasn't feeling very confident. I saw this in the store, and despite the advise that the old guy in the plumbing section gave me I decided to go for it. Drilled four holes and set her down right over the old flange. NOTE: You will need TWO wax seals. This is not made clear in the instructions. You will need one for under the Hydroseat, then one for the actual toilet. I ended up making a second trip back for a second ring. That's why I couldn't give it four stars. A couple more photos on the box or something would have probably persuaded me to buy it sooner. For $20 give it a shot. It beats calling a plumber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked for my job I had a cracked flange. this worked to cover the old flange and stabilize the toilet. it created and great seal and no leaks are happening. there are some other repair kits but they did not fit under my Kohler toilet as the bolts that went into the ground would interfere with the toilet but this one is designed better so that the bolts do not hit the toilet and it sits flat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Fast, and Effective. Excellent Design. I rarely leave reviews, but this deserves one. Hesitant to purchase this at this because of it's higher cost. However, after going through numerous trial and error on a very tough situation (not enough support around the pipe to hold a repair flange, old lead flange, etc.), I read the reviews here and went for it. $8 more than the other repair kits but this would have saved me a lot of time and effort if I went for it in the first place. Here's the rundown on getting the job done right: Supplies: drill and drill-bit, wax ring, wrench for toilet bolts, scraper, marker, repair flange Steps: 1 - Scrap old wax from toilet and old flange 2 - place repair flange over pipe and mark the 4 holes (note the flange is directional) using the 2 toilet bolts as guides to measure equal distance from the back wall. 3 - remove flange and pre-drill the marks 4 - place the new wax ring onto the bottom of the flange repair (fits perfectly) 5 - place the flange with wax over the pipe, aligning the pre-drill holes 6 - place pressure on the wax ring evenly until the flange is almost touching the floor 7 - screw in the screws evenly in cross pattern to evenly displace wax 8 - completely tighten screws 9 - make sure the rubber inner seal is fully extended into the pipe 10 - place toilet onto of the built-in toilet screws and adjust slightly until both screws are about equal in the toil screw holes. 11 - tighten screws 12- grab your favorite adult beverage! You are done! Notes: the wax helps seals against gases coming up between the rubber seal and pipe, not so much to create a tight seal against water, as it doesn't contact the toilet bottom. The rubber seal on this repair flange seals the bottom of the toilet and redirects it into the pipe. The screws provided were about 1.5" long, more than enough for most wood floors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor flow I replaced this over a large 5 inch cast iron pipe. I used longer drywall screws to bite into solid wood. It held the toilet firmly into place. The toilet started to develop a gurgling sound and sluggish flow. This is because the rubber gasket it too narrow at the bottom. I removed this product and used a normal flange and screw through that into the floor at an angle and the toilet returned to normal operation. I was able to fix this problem, but if you are desperate perhaps you could cut away some of the rubber at the bottom to widen the opening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good and easy to install I broke the toilet flange removing my old toilet during a remodel and bought this to fix. Easy install and worked like a champ. One caution - the directions have you installing the wax seal between the original flange and this product. That's fine, but I HIGHLY recommend buying a second wax seal to place between this and the toilet. That is what I did and have had no problems. I used a standard seal between this and the flange, and a large seal between it and the toilet.

Worked great on my 80 year old concrete basement floor to replace the toilet. The old toilet was bolted into the floor with bolts that were set in the concrete. I just hazed off the old bolts, and put the wax ring down, and tap-conned this B into the concrete. It fixed the wobble I used to have with the old toilet, because you could tighten down the bolts and the flange gives a little to plumb everything up nice and level. Would definitely buy again!
