Good day Ladies and Gentalmen. My question is this, I have a toilet on the 2nd story of my home directly above my workroom. Well after the toilet is flushed water and whatnot seems to leak all over the bloody place in my work room. The real problem is that the studs that the flange bolts are attached to have rotted from beneath the toilet. How do I attach a new wax ring closet bend and flange to nothing??? Thanks in advance, PEACE

You don't. You need to cut out the rotted out sections of flooring, replace the joists that are rotted, and then you can replumb the toilet. If you try to replumb without fixing the structure it will just fail again. I've seen this before, the toilet leaks a little an the floor starts to rot. Someone fixes the leak, but the rotted floor cause the toilet ot move and the leak starts again. The rotting gets worse. Use pressure treated lumber to replace the rotted stuff.
