There are basically 2 options for fixing cast iron toilet flange. The first option is to remove the old cast iron flange and replace it with a new one. Now that sounds easy but let me tell you, it's downright brutal. Firstly, you have to remove the old flange and do it without damaging the main drain pipe that it's attached to. This means busting out the old lead and oakum. This process is very time consuming and tedious and requires patience. Not to mention you are doing this all on your knees slumped over the flange. Not the most desirable place to work. After you finally get the old cast iron flanged removed, you have to install a new cast iron flange. This requires you to melt and pour hot lead onto oakum that has been packed tightly around the flange. I don't know about you, but this sounds like a ton of hard work.
