PVC Toilet Flange Broken In Concrete Replaced


CB here’s the plan we’re gonna reset
this toilet so pull this set it aside we clean up the wax, then we are gonna change the flange see how its rocking we got a real rocker here folks! Broken Flange! Who is the best helper? were gonna pick up toilet and put where you are. then we gotta change the flange both set of bolts are off?yeah now look
just like this huh that’s one yeah put it down real nicely
nice all right there it is the culprit right there bad
flange get a scraper some type of cardboard or trash with the old wax in
okay You know what that is Chuck its sewer gas I did not fart.. where’s your nut driver for that size ok here is what we got going on here. this job is a continuation from last year we were to do this over the winter change this flange and I
already see there is a flange inside the pipe anyway change the flange before the
season started well the season starts in two days so now we’re down here in
crunch time trying to get this done going ram bit three inch we have here
that is a repair flange down the pipe so what I’m gonna do here is drill it out hopefully it works I’ve never used one. I been a plumber for 30 years this is my
first time using this joker here we go I don’t what this its the wrong size I tell you
that its cuts out the pipe. we are making due. Aright CB. Oh we got all kinds of issues. oh this is interesting Chuck We might get lucky here CB. Now I know why its floating all over the place. its a flange inside a flange yeah there we go this isn’t going good we have more
they’re broken flange we got you We got two broken flanges who the hell did this? let me see that insert flange CB guess what
we’re gonna make that work CB same tight they had this type of flange. same type. push tight three-inch gasket closet
flange but they didn’t cement down good enough so if I punch that in I can get
that in an inch go flush use these bolts because they’re stronger and Hilti I got
the hilti gun some anchors right in there and we set it and I got some quick
dry cement will set in cement underneath you know I mean we’re going for it next
trip out to the truck we’re going to need dust pan and brush I’m gonna cut these bolts I came down here last year they did this
while it was open and they were supposed to break up the whole floor and redo the
bathroom and now they’re not they’re doing other stuff and yeah I had to shut
the bathroom down and do the best I could all right here’s the plan as you see
this is the old toilet flange it must have raised an old floor went flange
in a flange so what we’re going to do fill it with concrete preset the
flange let it set up and anchor it to the floor and set the toilet in cement. we gonna go with the extra long bolts Pre fab these okay no time to Jack the floor this is the
ladies room and they get crazy in here this is quick drying cement. another bottle water somewhere here
give me some water in this sewer smell coming up here smells really nice mother fudger. that was my wrist so I couldn’t put it before because it go right
down the drain and I mean the odds I really got to do this to make sure it
gets on the side of the bolts know what I’m saying oh that’s where the toilet rocks are you cementing the holes by accident right now? just here yeah no it’s already tighten
the bolts on okay then we let it dry then we be anchoring because it’s
quick-drying cement yeah I like it though. I like what is happening here this is the old toilet flange change the
two-minute warning of super bowl season then I was just told we got a broken
water service for a strip strip mall that’s been broken for three months. So I don’t know what were gonna do with that. alright CB we can clean this up a little bit. we look at this here and when that is solid as a rock we can drill it. here’s the best part is this floor is really out.we have a big dip right here you can see so we’re gonna be setting this in
either quick drying cement again or plaster was recommended trash. trash. lets put this in here and stop this smell. lets clean up reall good and you can throw that in the trash all right we’re gonna let this set now
if we’re going to go on a kitchen do the other thing all right let’s sweep this
up okay little pressure today a little pressure alright this isn’t drying quite as fast
as I like so what I’m gonna so is put the light on it eccelerate the heat process mega big yes CB I like that better
Oh CB I like this oh yeah that drill the
hole too big for the other tap cons I had to buy big boys oh you have to a hole too big
oh come on don’t do daddy wrong right now I don’t want to break the head I’ll
show let me just see what happens here I might have to re drill a little bit. man
you know if they both real hard I will re drill super tight where you can’t hand tighten them in. oh I like this one Chuckie there ya go. get in here dude. give me the screw gun real quick i drilled this one too big that’s why we got
to go into bigger tapcon all right it’s too wide hand tight them and don’t worry
about this one all right Im gonna go see Brett real quick ok. Hand tighten them in ok if you feel your gonna break it. stop! CB you still here?
Come here real quick tell me this is to tight or am I being to soft? No. Thats tight take one of these with you see if we have a
little socket to fit this okay because this is a come on man yeah huh

why what’s your head bleeding did you hurt the pipe yeah here don’t go
rock it back and forth because here we’re gonna fix with the cement you do this Chuck yeah take your step
back make sure toilet is straight before you tighten it down
that’s all you gotta do 1/4 inch above the bolt we don’t have caps you want some water oh yeah I’m gonna go get a bottle bang
nice nice CB were gonna mix some cement I’m going to
opt with it I’m going hydraulic cement again press here lip flap okay no not

  1. Smells like money

  2. Great vids!! Learning!!

  3. Bar toilet? Wear a body condom! Hoodie in July? Thanks for video CB!

  4. mmm, more "ole stink hole" action, I can smell the sewer gas in my mind again… 🙁

  5. ahh the drill tool, that's meant to remove a piece of pipe from inside a fitting socket. I don't think they make one to remove anything from inside the pipe, maybe the next size down would work, even though the measurement is off 🙂
    also, wasn't that just a push in repair flange? doh. and later in video, yes it was lol

  6. looked like a good candidate to try out non-wax "foam" toilet flange gaskets. never tried them either lol

  7. HOLLOW SHAFT KLEINS!!! @1:42 still haven't gotten me a set yet, but one day when my channel locks have no teeth from old age then ill get some…

  8. I notice you love hydraulic cement 🙂
    I should carry some for cases like that.

  9. Cb the problem with the ram bit not working, is the dewalt drill, I've been carrying those rambits for 20+ years, i finally used the 2" one yesterday. You dont like the plastic shims? Thanks for video

  10. Why you struggle screwing in tapcons? Why not use an impact or drill driver. Save your wrists.

  11. Hood up no I'm done !!

  12. In addition to your great content, the BEST thing is that you get to spend important quality time with your boys. The time-value and life-lessons they are learning from you are truly priceless. Both you and they are very fortunate to share so many opportunities. Cherish the moments!!!

  13. Where’d u guys pick up the hand pump?

  14. Two things that might help you out.

    1) Cheapest small shop vac that Home Depot has. Remove filter and throw away. Use it to suck tanks and bowls dry in seconds. Also if you can't propress and have to solder with a little water in the pipe it sucks that dry too. I have set the vac hose on to another open pipe close to the joint to be soldered and it has pulled the water back away from the joint area enough to solder the joint.

    2) Heat closet flange rings with torch until they are soft and then cut away with razor knife. You can also heat the part of flange inside the pipe, then take screwdriver and pry a section away from pipe, insert channel locks and twist peel it out. Fastest, neatest way I've found. Throw that drill tool away and save time and we all know what time is.

  15. Would shim and silicone have made it easier? Thanks

  16. FYI thats not how you use a Socket Saver, proceede slowly, the intent is to ream out the hole, not knaw it off like a wolf eating a deer, you didnt need it, but if it had been a glue in you would have made way more work for yourself, those tools are life savers, but you need to use them properly to get the benifit. I have used them many times under sinks, into wall stub outs.

  17. Nice job Chuck! …..and Angelo gives a better "There goes another satisfied customer". You need to step up your game CB2, we want that farewell with some AUTHORITY!

  18. Nice repair cb! A hundred different ways to repair a flange, I think your idea is gonna work best.

  19. …love the western theme music

  20. i see you use wax rings without the funnel ..excellent choice

  21. My only problem is the lack of a guard on that grinder

  22. I normally use the insert flange, with silicone on the gasket…set it, put the screws in and pour anchoring cement through the bolt holes… it self levels… and the cement is the consistency of a milkshake for ez pouring… nice job…flange repairs can be a work of art….eye of the beholder and all…

  23. i think cb2 is the governor welldone

  24. Holy Tap- cons Batman! That sucker isn't going anywhere!

  25. CB vacuum out the holes for the tapcons and you'll find it easier to drive them flush, also heard old plumbers trick here in NY for rocking toilets is filling the bottom voids of the toilet with plaster os Paris and then place a nice amount to finish leveling it off and it won't budge

  26. Hey chuck plaster would have done wonderful in this case as you probably know.been using it for 20+ years and never lets me down

  27. Just put in another floor so you could put a flange in flange in a flange. Before you know it your head will hit the ceiling when you stand up from taking a shit.

  28. Yeah just leave it so the next guy really can't fix it.

  29. I wouldn’t of used cement on that. Kinda really screwed the next guy. Would a used some soft wedges and silicon may of had to keep filling it until it got there I have also used plumbers putty on big gaps to make a wall on those big gaps then caulked it in its seems rigged but if you done everything right and just have an ugly gap for aesthetic it comes out nice

  30. Your patch job is just as bad as the previous garbage job. What are the homeowner suppose to do if they ever want to replace that deteriorating bathroom floor?

  31. Was that hydraulic cement you used? Will any kind work? I have to replace a flange in my basement and I have a similar situation where the concrete is all shipped out and broken. This video gives me some hope…I just want to make sure I get the right material to pour in there

  32. I like the way he bad mouths the existing work and then does a terrible messy half-ass job himself.

  33. The way you were pouring the cement it sounded like you were having a sexual experience…..just sayin.

  34. thank you for the music

  35. nice video only thing i would have done different is cut the bolts off by 1/2 inch instead of redrill and fighting

  36. What a stupidass job

  37. I saw the hate comments, but I think you did the best thing you could have done without getting the jackhammer. Not a routine flange replacement for sure.

  38. Liqiud Anti Hydro with a sand and cement @ 50/50 mix, we use it on Dams and sets up fast ( old timer secret), will not rust the bolts, ever!

  39. Cement to level again? Why not composite shims with a bead of silicone?

  40. Whoever slapped the bathroom remodel job together did a bad job there's a big gap underneath the baseboard big enough for water or more precisely "black water" to get in there and do damage ! The hardwood floorboards look nice and expensive too bad they used it for the bathroom floor !

  41. Love your videos. Definitely vacuum or blow out the The dust before you put in the tapcons. We use hundreds on each raised floor and it works much better

  42. Is that real hardwood flooring

  43. Why not use a drill for tapcons?

  44. CB 2 doesn’t have steel toes on! That sounds like a pay cut forsure

  45. Try drilling the holes deep enough the first time. And tapcons are not prone to breaking if you use a mid to low impact setting. Like the video though keep em coming.

  46. I wouldn’t use something that will ultimately become brittle and fall apart to shore up the base of the toilet. Exterior grade liquid nails works good. Just leave room for kitchen/bath sealant to cover the liquid nails so there will be no discoloring. Liquid nails will never deteriorate like cement or plaster products. Could also use loctite products.

  47. Love all your videos Chuck. After watching this one I was wondering should a flange be level with the floor or should it be resting on top of it?

  48. OMG SO YOU PUT THE FLANGE BACK IN THE FLANGE! HACKER

  49. Mickey Mouse plumbing you never put a new flange in top of the old flange

  50. Your audio is terrible!

  51. 30 years and you don't know how to use a rambit???

  52. Is that water line hitting the back of the toilet? Maybe need a 10" rough.

  53. I usually dont leave comment but man this is hill billy stuff, home owners probably will think this is the best way… roto rooter will get a lot of business from this repair Anything smaller than 3 inch inside diameter in the shitter is restricting the flow and will lead to constant clogs. Sorry dude but u really need to watch some videos from pros doing it before u upload ur shit.

  54. Rockite works great?

  55. This is where your can of compressed air would have helped with the screw holes.

  56. Great job! It never ceases to amuse how many "plumbers" out there that always can do a better job. However, some plastic trims in the front may help stabilize back and forth rocking.

  57. U could have used grout

  58. Well this is definitely entertaining. Forget critiquing why bother. Lol just enjoy. 😂

  59. Well my younger sons came in and said: ‘ I’ve seen you use that multiple times and that is not the way you use that, ‘ lol. Straight up and down No clue where this 30 year plumber has been. Unfortunately stuck in NJ

  60. might want to have a 4 inch test plug or a pressure test plug : TEMPORARY while chiseling out material and when pouring fast stuff- min a rag/in plastic bag

  61. What is the normal pay for an apprentice who is just starting out?

  62. These camera angles are giving me big brother, Rock of love and bad girls club vibes.

  63. For knot breaking the floor up that is one hell of a fine repair job sir

  64. Nothing the hate in the comments where’s the love at??? Nice work chuck!! YouTube police at it again 👮

  65. That new tool you got for your drill works great if used properly. That drill bit is intended to remove glued PVC pipe from inside hub. That way you can reuse PVC fitting.

  66. symphonic   wc not  used  in  uk  that  much  good vid  tor training  youngsters coming a long

  67. better in uk  4inch  out let

  68. 4 inch ENGLISH    OR  100MM  FRENCH

  69. chuckie you gotta invest in a small shop vac then you can suck all that water out easier!

  70. i cringed when i saw you put the quick set around the bolts. what's gonna happen when the bolts rust and need to be changed out? you always gotta think about the next service guy… hope it isn't gonna be you! 🙂

  71. good lord, you quickset the toilet to the floor!? noooo, whyyy. all you needed was some toilet shims! next guy is f*cked now

  72. HAHaaaa  great stuff…..  "ya know what that is son?"…..  ahhhhhh, ahh…. "This is interesting Chuck!" (kids like…WTF>>)  I'm no plumber but this was like being at work.   "ahh… We don't want that,… right down the old shitter"…..  "C-mon,.. don't do daddy wrong right now!"  As another trades guy;  Great and thank You.  The rest of the world would not get the rolling trades humor that matures like warm beer in the shop over the years.  THIS is how we get along and amuse ourselves throughout the day doing the work that keeps us all together.  Thank You for the info on the repair.  Hey kid, get your dad a adjustable impact gun(Milwaukee), a multi tool(DeWalt) and a compact shop Vac(Rigid), before he retires!!!

  73. I am no plumber, so i cannot comment on the work. I am curious about you saying in some comments that it's spring time (thus the hoodies) and that the place is closed for the season. Then in other comments you defend your work by saying the bar/restaurant is open and you had to do a quick repair cuz it's the only mens room.

  74. Hydraulic is too messy. I prefer slipping in cedar shimms cut flush with box cutter then seal with clear latex caulk

  75. GREAT VIDEOS! Still waiting to purchase a sweatshirt or tshirt.

  76. It leaked 7months later.

  77. "First time I've used this joker"….doesn't even glance at the instructions. CB just watches in confusion as you cement the thing. What am I watching?

  78. Do you know if that is Chucky sewer gas I didn’t I didn’t fart 😂🤣😅
