If you're even mildly handy and want to tackle this task, you can do this DIY toilet repair project – fix a damaged flange for your toilet. During the course of removing your old toilet fixture, you may find a damaged flange. The flange is one way a toilet may mount onto the floor. If the cracks on the damaged flange are not severe, you may be able to perform DIY toilet repair by using a simple repair tab.
The repair tab fits right under the lip of the damaged flange. You simply insert the closet bolt through the repair tab, tightening the tab against the flange and securing the toilet bowl in place.
