    Assuming that is a solid floor and that the crack isn't a crack, I would make a strong mix of sand and cement and push it all the way under the space in the base and around the rear, plus the pipe, then leave it undisturbed for a week to set - if there are not other options. If the 'crack' is a crack then all bets are off.

  5. I understand what you mean about a frame perhaps feeling like overkill - better to get it sorted properly

    I'm only 12 stone and I wouldn't fancy sitting on that toilet, especially with the section stuck back on down the side!.

    For the cost of a toilet it's a no brainer to replace it something that fits properly.

    Can't believe he carried on after knocking a chunk out of the side..
