How do you install a twist and set toilet flange?
Keeping this in view, should toilet flange be glued?
If the pipe has a 4-inch inside diameter This toilet flange is designed to glue on the inside of the pipe or expand inside the pipe. The flange should be sitting with the bottom edge flush with the top of the floor. If it isn't, then you will have to cut away the old flange.
Furthermore, how high should the toilet flange be above the floor? With the toilet removed, you can see the toilet flange and measure its height above the floor. Optimum flange height to aim for is 1/4 inch above the finished floor. This typically allows for almost any type of wax ring to be used and still ensure a good seal.
Thereof, how long should a toilet flange last?
Should toilet flange be screwed to floor?
The flange should be fastened to the floor. Dry fit the toilet to make sure it doesn't rock. If it does rock, use shims to prevent rocking - just tightening the bolts probably will not stop the rocking but will risk cracking the toilet or breaking the flange. We would usually screw it down during the rough in.
