I’m installing a basement toilet over 1/4″ ceramic tile, mortor and concrete foundation. How high should the roughed-in 4″ PVC pipe stick out above the top of the tile? Should the metal flange sit directly on top of the tile or should the top of the flange be flush with the top of the tile? HELP! firstname.lastname@example.org
You still have to use collar, if you use 4″ you have to cut coc. around pipe to receive it and if you use 3″ flange some are flush others got little bevel on bottom which holes flange about 1/4″ above floor.
In reply to message posted by Bendychicken: why not just stub the pvc up above floor level and just cut it flush after floor is finnished?no measuring, no thinking required.
You can certainly do this., but you will need a special tool, i.e. the Rigid internal plastic/copper soil pipe cutter…cost about $100 US… So, unless you do a lot of this work and already have this gadget, why not cut the stub to the right length?
