Toilet Flange Installation

When plumbing for a toilet: (1)What is the proper distance from the center of the flange to the finished wall? (2)What is the correct placement of the top of the flange in relation to the finished floor?

Ken, usually 12" center of hole to finished wall, but if you cheat to 12 1/2" you will be happier. I usually allow the flange to 1) be flush with existing subflooring and build it up with flange adapters to above tile, or 2) allow the flange to sit on the tile. You will need this height in order to keep from using larger wax seals, or doubling up on them.

Flange

Thanks, Larry.
I have a toilet close to the wall on which I had to "cheat" when installing the tank. I think the flange is not 12 in.

I appreciate your replies and your vast knowledge. Thanks again.
