  • Moving an toilet

    I am remodeling a downstairs bathroom and need to move the toilet over about 8-10 inches from its current location. I realize that I need to cut the floor to accomplish this, but I am not sure how to tie in to the cast iron sewer pipe. Any suggestion?

          Agreed, not because you cant do it, its just going to be way cheaper and way less time consuming,

          Now if you had 25 toilets to install for a small village and you were doing this as a nice thing sure, I think it would be time to learn, But so often people just try to "do it quick" aka DIY, and then wind up calling a professional anyhow.

          Do yourself a favor and just call a licensed plumber

            Thanks for the replies. How much should I expect to pay for this?

              Prices are kind of a don't ask, don't tell policy around here. Good rule of thumb is to plan on anywhere between $500 and $50,000. If you are not comfortable with the price or the company, get a second opinion.

                Or you could cut a hole around the flange. post it here and let us see how the layout is......I've done many jobs like this....is it a wood floor or concrete?

                  Just cut a hole in the floor with a bucket underneath. Then leave a window open after a few days until the neighbors pitch in the funds to put the toilet in for you, especially the down wind neighbors.

                  Kinda like when the snowplow finally comes down your road after you've called for three days straight.........

                  Or maybe not.........

                    I assume this is PVC going into cast iron?
