Closet Flange For 3" Sdr 35 ?


Try to put aside the obvious question, "How did that happen?", and try to help me out. Anybody got an online source where I can order a closet flange for 3" sdr 35? None of the three local plumbing supply houses have them, and only one is willing to order them if I want a case of 25 (Souix Chief brand). I figure there must be an online place to order just one, but I'm coming up with nothing. Heck, I'd even settle for a 3" sdr 35 x sch 40 bushing if I could find one of them.

Many places carry sdr x sch 40 adapters,though I wouldn't know in your area.There may be a Barnett supply near you,or how about grainger?I'm surprised the diy stores don't have them,it seems right up their alley.

I can find places w/ sdr bushings, but only 4-inch and above. Nobody with 3-inch stuff. You're right, though.... does seem like something Lowe's and Home Depot should have, but I already checked there.

This is an existing building that was aparently plumbed with sdr 35. They had closet flanges on that were the right size for thinwall. One of the closet flanges broke at the hub, and needs replaced. If I can't find something to order tonight, I'm going to make my own bushing tomorrow with half of a 3" sdr coupling and use a sch 40 closet flange.

A closet flange designed to slide into a 3" PVC hub and a No Hub band should do the trick rather easily.

I think you mean a mission band. No-hubs are not for transitioning from Sch40 to sdr. You've been pouring too much lead

Re: Closet Flange For 3" Sdr 35 ?


You could go with one of those flanges that have a gasket that slips inside of 3". Make sure you bolt it to the floor though. It's not the best, but it's quick and easy. Blowes sells them.

Re: Closet Flange For 3" Sdr 35 ?


Got my problem solved, by the way. I found a little out of the way place that had 3" sdr35 x sch40 bushings. Not much of a bushing. Pretty thin. Just what the doctor ordered, though. That little 2 dollar bushing kept me from having to buy a case of special order closet flanges.

(I noticed during my struggles that some companies make closet flanges that glue on the inside of 3" sch40. They were way too loose on sdr35. That's a pretty freaking small hole. Looks like a recipe for a stoppage. Are the 3" inside glue flanges even code compliant? I can't imagine you'd even get a nice hard swirl in the bowl with that small of an outlet. Maybe not. I'm not going to try them, that's for sure.)

They are no smaller than the outlet hole on the toilet.

Re: Closet Flange For 3" Sdr 35 ?


Huh? That gasket should have fit just fine. Their is less than 1/10th of an inch difference between sch40 and sdr IDs. I'm puzzled. The gasketed flange I normally use has to be compressed to the point that it's almost impossible to get it into sch40 pipe. That's with filing a nice inside bevel and lubing the heck out of both the pipe and fitting. It should've worked. I dunno man.

BTW, may I ask how we ended up with sdr35 inside a structure serving a toilet?

Beats me. Whole building was done that way in 1967.
