      The toilet flange was broken on the soil pipe. This is a cast iron pipe and flange that was leaded on. I cut the old flange off. Replaced it with a flange that has a collar than fits over the soil pipe and you tighten four bolts that secures it to the pipe. I made sure that it was flush and level with the floor. Now the toilet is loose (it rocks when you sit on it) Can i get another flange leaded on? or is there another way to fix this concern.

      Make sure the cast Iron flange is tight and level with the floor.

      THEN Gently make up the floor flange bolts GENTLY

      I hope you didnt try a No Hub Quick set Flange on extra heavy cast Iron pipe.

      You may need a caulked CI floor flange . No big deal .

      Send me an E mail if you run into trouble
