Situation: Need to reinstall a toilet. Put on new closet bolts to the toilet flange on the drain, go to tighten bolts and the head of the closet bolt comes up thru the flange slot because the outter edge of the flange slot is bent. I’m not overly tightening the bolts any more than you’d want to tighten them to hold the bowl down. I tried bending the outer edge of the flange ring back down but it’s so weak (not rusty, just somehow a weaker steel I guess) that modestly tightening the bolt causes the screw head to pop up from the slot it’s in preventing me from tightening the one side of the bowl down to the floor. Any ideas how to fix it? This is a CI drain and this particular CI Closet Bend appears to have the flange integral to the Closet Bend as I do not see any joints that one could take it apart and install a newer flange. And besides, I have a new tile floor down on this job, I don’t wanna go messing with the floor or doing anthing with potential to harm the floor.
Hanging a truss outside a stick-framed wall is an old idea that hangs in with modern materials, building science, and energy-efficiency goals.
