  • 2" offset C.I flange

    here is a question for u older plumbers that have caulked in a few more joints than i have. i got a floor mount WC roughed in at 10" off back wall. with the type of bowl im using calls for a 12" rough. no big deal i got the offset flange but i have to lead it in. now my question is how the hell do you caulk the backside of the flange where the offset is. i cant get a caulking iron back there to pack it in.

    it's not easy and it's not legal

    pour the hot lead and caulk everything you can get to. then heat up a screwdriver/ punch to form the offset and caulk the rest that's hard to reach

        I haven't seen one of these in decades. But they make (made?) a caulking iron that loops down so you can caulk a joint from below. It makes a "u" turn, or imagine a caulking iron that looks kind of like a hook. I like rick's idea. It will be far easier than trying to locate a vintage oddball caulking iron.

          Look in the UPC and IPC, not legal.

            I thought any offset closet flange was a code violation? Just looking at them they seem to be a clog waiting to happen.

              The iron with the hook is a ceiling iron(still use one every week it seems, doing roof heads),we used to use a piece of conduit ,smashed flat and doubled up with a little curve to it to get to that back section on the collar,do a collar and throw it away.
