comment How proud can a toilet flange sit above the floor?
@Tester101 I have tried. Big Orange and Big Blue didn't have any, but there's a specialty plumbing store nearby that might carry a better selection. Next time I'm out I'll check there. Otherwise, I've got a 3" flange w/ a built in 45 and another 45 and that's better but still not perfect. What I really need is a 4"/3" Fernco coupling that has an offset 3"... ah well.

@stephen it doesn't matter when I put the flange in it's the pipe links with the bends to prevent it from going lower

Worse, its been like that for years. The entire floor around the toilet has been soft for a while. When we pulled the toilet and put weight on the back area under the tank(now removed), the 3/4" TiG floor sank a visible 1/2" at least with very disturbing cracking sounds...

The pipe cutter sounds like the best way to go. I'm not confident that I could successfully remove the pipe from it's joint in a clean, reusable fashion or if I did, that I'd get a good seal to the inserted pvc. We've already had to deal with this toilet leaking onto the kitchen ceiling from the drain, we don't ever want that happening again. And since I clearly have some framing work to do here anyway, I'll be sure to add extra support for the new pipe.

Like I said - the main stack is fine. It's just the flange that needs replacing. The really poor decision here was what they did to the structure in installing that toilet. I mean - look at that joist! They cut 6" off of it making it a 2x4. Could you imagine that giving way while you're sitting on the john???

@maple_shaft the main stack has 2 45 deg angles in it further down, and is blocked at the basement, but I'm not interested in replacing the entire stack. The stack is fine, its just the flange that needs replacing.
