I'm putting in a pvc pipe and and new closet flange. Whats the best way to fill in around the pvc to get it back up to level with the tile? Its 2.5 - 3" deep at its deepest. Anything is better than the gallon of putty (white stuff in upper left) that used to fill it in. :wtf:

will you be tiling this are a or are you just wanting to fill the hole?

any cementous patching product with an additive will work.
make sure you fill the crack so it won't run and ooze into the basement.

i'm just leveling it to the top of the tile. There will be no tile under the toilet. I'm going to put some new wood around the hole to prevent it from running into the basement.

Which product would be best for filling up to 3"? And if they're all equal, which is cheapest? Thinset? "Deck mud" as its described here? A bag of ready mix cement? Something else?

thinset will work

I keep reading everywhere thinset shouldn't be used anywhere it'll be over 1/2".... :shrug:

If you are just filling the hole and not going to tile or anythng else then you will be just fine with whatever cement product you use. Ready mix will be just fine.
