Forum Title: Toilet Flange Question
HI Everyone! Recently our toilet was leaking and I took the toilet out to discover a broken flange. I removed the wax ring, the flange and the flange looked to be stuck to a pvc pipe connected to the pvc elbow. Which I removed the flange and the pvc pipe. Now I bought a ring(Perfect Seal) and I also bought a few flanges and pvc pipe. The elbow seems to be very low. Would I just need to cut the appropriate length of pvc pipe, prime and cement it in place and then prime and cement the new flange in the pvc pipe, or should the flange go directly in the PVC elbow ( It seems too low) Also, do you recommend a flange with a rubber gasket, or a flange with no gasket that you would just prime and cement in ? Here are a few pics. Thanks for the help. Also that is wax in the pipe and not that bad icky stuff.

Use the flange that requires cement. Place the flange on the floor 12 centre from the drywall and pipe it accordingly.
