I'm helping a guy redo a bathroom. The old flange was removed and a hardwood floor was installed. (I didn't see the prior stuff or removal).

The waste stack is a lead pipe almost flush with the floor. It's slightly misshapen, but, being lead, it looks like it can be rounded out. The hardwood comes pretty close to the pipe. I don't see enough room to put a fernco on it.

Is there a flange made that can be installed to fit inside the lead and sealed? I thought I saw one once that had a rubber seal near the lower end, but I don't see any around.

Any ideas?

Cool

NORM,
I think that this is what you're looking for...a toilet flange extender:

Good Luck!

Thanx, Mike.
I think we'll need one. The bottom of the flange will sit inside the lead pipe, it looks the seal on the extender sits on the top of the lead pipe and provides the seal.
