    There is nothing wrong with glueing a toilet flange inside 4" PVC. This is not a hard concept to understand.

      Re: Closet Flange Connection

      I did apartment buildings when I first started out plumbing, most 3+ floors with 4 units per floor and 2 toilets per unit. Every Toilet had 4" PVC with a inside 4" Toilet Flange.

      We tested every unit to pass inspections. There was never a leak at the Toilet Flange.

      We did well over 1000 units, so say 2000 tested inside 4" PVC Toilet Flanges and never a leak.

        GreenPlumb, thank you for the link. Sioux Chief has a note right on their ad there that proves the point that a lot of us has been saying. The inside of the pipe is not uniform.

          Homeowners are putting all sorts of retarded fitting configurations together.Leaking is not the issue.

          Inside the pipe is illegal,UPC.Won't pass inspection by a knowledgeable inspector.
          DoI cheat?
          I leave that up to the individual.

            The inside might not be 100% uniform.

            It's good enuff to hold 5 Floors ( 22 PSI ) for head test.

            Thats good enuff for me.

              I've found different brands of pvc that the fittings are loose on different brands of pipe. So its up to the plumber to make sure they have an interference fit.

              The post proves its code approved in some areas just like I have been saying and the main thing it proves is that it WORKS.

                If it gets me out of a jam, and I'm saving the customer a few thousand dollars from ripping up marble/tile on a concrete floor, I'm using one of those flanges.

                Somewhere a long the line "common sense" has to come into play in this trade.

                    Thats right its just simple common sense.

                    With a 4" inside the pipe flange the solvent weld joint is not exposed to water flow unless the drain cloggs. The joint is never stressed because the flange is anchored to the floor.

                    The joint between the flange and the pipe is way stronger and will hold more pressure then any wax seal or putty(unless the putty has dried out then it gets very hard and makes a superior seal compared to the wax,but not as strong as solvent weld.),especially when the sewer backs up and the homeowner uses a plunger.

                    Common sense...its just not common anymore. If its not in a book or online then it must not be true!!!!

                    NHmaster is deflecting by posting pics that have no relationship to the subject. Sorry!

                      What we have here is a failure to understand what a solvent weld joint is.

                        It has an interference fit...it is solvent welded. There is no failure

                            It's what you do when you install new bearings on you axle.
