Replacing Toilet Flange on Lead Pipe

Replacing Toilet Flange on Lead Pipe

Replacing toilet Flange on Lead Pipe? That’s not what I intend to do on every loose toilet bowl call. But the harsh reality here in N.Y.C is that if you pull a loose toilet chances are you’ll find a lead pipe. Unless the flange was soldered from day one, that the bowl will come loose before it’s time.

I was called in for this loose toilet and as soon as I pulled the bowl and scraped away the old wax gasket and bingo, the lead was peened over the flange with no solder. Big mistake! I personally recommended replacing the pipe, but these people could not afford that expense along with replacing a section of the floor.

Replacing Toilet Flange on Lead Pipe can be a pain in the butt if you’ve never done it and I don’t recommend it for the D.I.Y. guy or gal. So I worked my magic as best as I could and bought this customer a few more years before the inevitable. Enjoy!

Regards & Happy Plumbing
