Toilet flange height
Asked Jun 4, 2006, 06:46 AM
I've looked and lookedd but can't find at what height the toilet mounting flange is to be from the finished floor for correct installation of a wax ring and toilet bowl. I have a concrete floor that I plan to put tile on, and the plumber on rough-in left the drain pipe about 3 inches out of the floor. By the time I put the flange on it will be 4 inches high. When I put a 3/4 inch floor on, it will be just a little over 3 inches high. Surely that is way too high. One discussion indicated it should be flush with the floor, but that wasn't the topic of the message, so it wasn't really clear if that was the case. Even my plumbing "how-to" books don't mention this VERY IMPORTANT detail!
