IT IS TIME TO SEAL THE HOLE NEEDED FOR THE TOILET
The view from below:
The Uniform Plumbing Code (IAPMO) allows the unsealed hole in the floor shown by the image on the left to be legal. This costs Americans tens of millions of dollars in property damage each year. You see light shining through the open slots. This is the pathway water will take when the toilet leaks or from water that seeps under the toilet from a bathroom floor. This is also the pathway bugs including cockroaches use.
The image on the right does not show any light coming through. There is a mechanical bond to the floor making a watertight seal. This is the “GOLD” standard.
