    The seal from the Toilet bowel to Sewer pipe was leaking

    So tried to remove the screws holding the bowl to the floor to renew the seal/bend.

    Ended up having to demolish the bowl as the screws were rusted and 'best part' the bowl was totally cemented to the floor.

    Having a new toilet system and about to lay tiles etc.

    The original toilet from when house built 1987, the bowel to sewer was via a short bend into a female/male (like a sleeve), into the seal as shown in picture in the clay pipe.

    My question: with the new bend from the toilet bowl into the sewer pipe, do I leave the black seal as seen in picture which stands approx 3cm above the floor or do I remove this and push the new seal bend into the clay pipe.


    thanks
