    Re: setting closet flange over a lead bend

    Finer, sounds like peening the lead over is the way to go in your application.
    Cast iron and lead installs can last for century if done well. I have little doubt that plastic will need replacement well before that.
    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

      Just make sure the brass flange is anchored down to the floor good or you will have problems for sure

          I've been cutting lead flashing with a utility knife or tin snips for about 48 Years. Most of our roof flashings back east were lead. I still buy and use it out west.
          I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

            i live in a small city in westchester county in NYS. our plumbing inspector is old school. when i politely inquired about his resitance to plastic, he stated that, in a fire, it would give off noxious fumes, to the potential detriment of the inhabitants of the bulding and any firefighters.

            my attitude is, since the PI has to approve the rough in and the install, i just do what he wants done. helps eliminate of load of grief.
            there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

                Re: setting closet flange over a lead bend

                hello, im new here.

                I have been reading these forums for a few weeks, and weanted to add from my experience.

                my old master and I at times would for go the closet collar in basements, he would intall lead anchors in the concrete, put some threaded rod in wax ring and set the toilet.

                I wonder if this would be a good situation to do the same here?

                regards,
                Lance
