Toilet Flange Repair

Toilet Flange Repair

In this toilet flange repair video, I’m learning some more new tricks from my plumbing colleges. In my service area of Brooklyn, New York 90% of the toilets I pull are connected to a lead toilet bend.

A brass toilet flange is soldered in place and on occasion they’ll fail a begin to separate. No problem, being an old-timer I get out the old soldering toolbox and proceed to solder on a new brass toilet flange.

Well, I recently discovered two products from the Oatey company a plumbing specialty supplier that could make me retire my soldering box forever! They feature two P.V.C toilet flanges designed to fit into cast iron pipes. But guess what? They also fit pretty well into 3" & 4" lead pipes.

Toilet flange repair in lead toilet bends is about to change forever! In this toilet flange repair, I show you how to use two of these new toilet flange repair products which quite possibly will allow me to eliminate soldering brass floor flanges forever!

Enjoy & Happy Plumbing!

Thank you so much for checking out my FREE YouTube videos, I hope you find value in them and just maybe save you some money by not having to call in a plumber!

In addition to the comments & questions below the videos, I also get plenty of e-mails asking for specific solutions to specific problems that only a job site visit could solve.

To the people who are local to my service area, that’s a piece of cake. But to the many viewers outside my area, it’s an issue. I often get multiple e-mails basically asking for step-by-step instructions for specific jobs.

I am available to clarify your questions and think the best way to do it would be through a remote consultation via zoom or what’s app or FaceTime, whichever you prefer. Tell me the best day and time that’s convenient for you and we can schedule it.

Send your requests to, and make sure to put "Video Consult" in the subject line. I forward you all the details.

Happy Plumbing
