Height of toilet flange.

How much should the toilet flange extend above the finished floor? Or should it be level with the finished floor?

The flange should sit flush on the finished floor.

Hi LB57

plumbing codes say toilet flanges should not be below the finished floor, or flush. the ideal is to have the flange set on top of the tile floor. but you wouldent have any problems if you tiled to a toiet flange that can not be reset, just replace the wax seal with the one that has the extension on it.

I just did that without any problems. The flange is flush on a concrete floor. I tiled up to the edge with fairly thin glass mosaic tile. The top of the flange is still well above the tile. I installed a new Toto toilet with a regular size wax ring. It was the easiest toilet I ever set.
