Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pondafarr Simple toilt flange repair
Oh, the joys home plumbing repair. The main toilet flange was FUBAR, not actually attached to the floor (bronze ring, slid over a lead "bend", with the rim of the "bend" flared to the ring, but the lead "bend" was warped and cracked and broken) I de-flared the "bend", removed the ring, cleaned up the outside of the "bend", reinstalled the flange, re-flared the "bend", installed a wax ring, and bolted on a flange repair kit. Full scrub on the toilet, and it is now ready to reinstall. Like other reviewers, I would have prefered that the screws be a bit larger, but overall, good repair part.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hawk1 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bane75 Awesome!! Great fix for basement half bath!!
I had issues getting a basement toilet that was mounted to the concrete floor to stop wobbling. I got this product and fixed it in about 10 minutes! I highly recommend the HydroSeat!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tiggens great product for an old house!
This worked great to use existing waste plumbing. Attaches to the floor (wwood or concrete depending on the fasteners you get). We used it to level and existing waste line that was low and not level. Make sure you still install wax seal on top!

This item replaced the worn toilet flange and was easy to install. I would recommend this option for anyone in the same circumstances. Use TapCons or plastic anchors in concrete. Be careful not to drill into the sewage line.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Craig Great idea for a common problem
I was replacing a toilet in an old building and ran into a badly rusted old toilet flange. Replacing the flange didn't seem like a good option. Ultimately I was able to wire wheel off the rusted through areas of the old flange and set this repair flange on top with using a wax gasket and 4 tapcon screws. The end result has so far proven to be very sturdy and leak free. I did have a slight wobble to the toilet when I was done, but a cheap pack of plastic toilet shims fixed that easily enough.

I used this to repair a broken flange in a basement toilet. I had previously used a different style flange screwed into the concrete and it had bent over time. I drilled new holes into the concrete and secured using Tapcon 3/16 in. x 1-3/4 in Hex Head Concrete screws and a new wax ring. The flange was very secure when finished. When placing the toilet, be sure to remove the debris cover over the flange, or you'll be removing the toilet to take it off. Overall, this was easy to install and is working beautifully.
