  • 4" drain pipe gonna drop?

    I'm not a plumber and know just about enough to get my self into trouble. I need to put a new subfloor down in my bathroom, When I take the toilet flange off and cut the pipe for the new flange how do I keep the pipe from dropping down into the hole? I am working on a double wide so I don't think there is anything down below to support it. I plan on using one of those compression fit flanges I don't know what they are called. In advance thank you

    Best thing to do is work from below. Check for grade. Bracing on top of your closet bend. Then you can "fit" from the top with a new flange.

          Thanks for the responses gentlemen, BRIED1903 the compression flange I'm refering to seems fairly simple. it fits down into the pipe and you turn it and a rubber seal comes out to grip and seal inside the pipe much like the old block plugs on a car. Is this not a good thing to use?
