  • "I think I got the pipe to" Are you certain you cracked the pipe below? – Jerry_Contrary Mar 18 '19 at 13:04
  • Not sure if I did or not I don't think I did – Anthony Tomasetti Mar 18 '19 at 13:06
  • I'm going to say yes – Anthony Tomasetti Mar 18 '19 at 13:07
  • So expose the pipe properly and replace the damaged section. – Solar Mike Mar 18 '19 at 13:09
  • By exposing the pipe you mean cut some of the cement around it? – Anthony Tomasetti Mar 18 '19 at 13:10

Assuming the pipe below the concrete is OK, you can buy a replacement flange that is designed to sit inside the pipe and grip the pipe in such as way as to secure the toilet

If the pipe below the concrete is damaged, you'll need to excavate the concrete and replace the entire damaged section. The good news there is you can install a new flange directly connected to the pipe then.
