wierd situation

most of the times when mounting the toilet is that the floor level is higher than the flange. in my case the flange is aprox 5/8 to 3/4" above the floor level. thought about using a plastic cutting board to make up the height. what are the thoughts of the group?

Welcome to the forums.

What happened ? Was the floor replaced ?

3/4" is a lot of space to make up. Can the flange be reset.
I've seen a marble toilet spacer but nothing anywhere near that thick.

I was looking around and others talked about cutting a spacer out of treated plywood. That would work in your case but pretty difficult to seal between the toilet and the floor.

Use multiple spacers glued together with silicon and silicon to the flange.

Set the toilet onto the flange, if you sit cleanly, use a regular wax ring. If the toilet hits the flange and floats over the floor, you will have to add an additional flooring layer to close the gap.

Ray, he thinks the flange is already too high.

Since the flange is supposed to be mounted atop the finished floor, czizzi has the correct answer.
