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.
