Upon removal of the old tile I found out that the builder didn't use a subfloor. They just put the tile right on the plywood. The toilet flange had at least 1" of space (between the bottom of the flange and the floor). The flange is glued to the pipe coming out of the floor. The toilet was also sitting on at least 1" thick grout. Now when I look at the flange someone has over tightend the nuts for the toilet, and stripped the flange. I can pull the bolt right through the flange.
I leveled out the floor, put down 3/4" concrete board, and installed the new tile. I also put in a new flange (riser?). The new one sits right on top of the old one. Now when I sit the toilet on, I have a 3/8" gap and a wobbly toilet. If I put a piece of tile under the front of the toilet it sits level, but still a big gap?
How do I get rid of the gap??????
Thanks in advance!
