I am removing and replacing a tile floor set on 1-1/4" of "mud". I will then install 3/8" cementbord and 3/8" tile (over subfloor). This will bring my tile floor DOWN to the level of the adjacent hardwood (in the bedroom. However, this will LOWER the bathroom floor by about 3/4". HOW DO I LOWER THE TOILET FLANGE THE SAME 3/4" to accomodate the new (lower) floor height??? Please advise!

Thank you.

My closet flange broke and I have to knock out all the concrete to replace it. You can either call a plumber or get out the chisel and hammer.

Thank you for looking and expressing interest. All the drains and stacks in my house are PVC. The subfloor is plywood and the bathroom is over finished space below. Worst case: I could cut out some sub-floor, cut out the flange and elbow and start from there. Do you have a better way? Thanks again for your help.

Shame you didn't ask first as many times one can use a Quick set flange or the one I tested and put on the Internet a great galvanized replacement type.

The key is the piping not necessarily the actual flange. Plastic even thought it is garbage in many cases it can be salvaged

There is something called a Quick set floor flange made of Cast Iron. Needs to be placed over the existing piping

It comes in several lenths and should fit over the bare pipe end, You can cut the old flange off close to the new finished floor

Here is a link tell them Tieger plumbing sent you (They may give you a better price)

To get the quick set you have to go to a plumbing supply not a home center

I did use it and it worked so all I can say is good luck
