Adding a basement toilet


Recommended Posts

I have a 41 year old home, there used to be a toilet and sink in the basement, but due to a sewer backup it was never put back into service. I have the sewer backup issue resolved and now want to put the bathroom back together.

There is currently a 4 inch pipe coming up out of the floor, and embedded in the concrete is a flange(not a floor flange---no opening for bolts to hold down toilet), with several holes in it, but with limited depth due to being embedded in the concrete.

Any recommendations on how to install the new toilet would be greatly appreciated. Is the flange thats embedded in the concrete useful in any way?
