        Bathroom remodel: floor around toliet removed. Cast iron closet bend with leaded brass flange. Flang was loose, lead joint broke. I removed old flange. Is there a replacemnt I can use that doesnt require leading to the 4 cast piece? Bend wont allow me to use the plastic type with the rubber compression fitting (too long). If I must lead a new brass one on do you have any advise. What are my options?

What you have to rember is the oakuum is what provides the seal & the lead just holds the oakum in place. pack the oakum into the space between the flange and pipe with a thin chisel or screwdriver and hammer lightly. Do this until the joint is filled leaving about an inch to the top of the joint. Then apply the plastic lead and fill to top. Good Luck, Scott

This short piece protrudes about 5/8 inch from the rim of the hub. The finished floor will be flush or slightly below the top of this piece. I dont see where Im going to have an inch to work with for my oakum joint.
