Default Plumbing Mismatch

I tried to replace a warped, leaky flange today. It is a 1 1/2" ABS plastic gadget that abuts my gray water blade valve.

The replacement flange has a slightly different bolt hole layout. The gasket rim also has a slightly different diameter. I am stuck now. Still scratching my head.

Is there no such thing as plumbing standards? The 1 1/2 " black ABS piping is difficult enough to find as is. This project is giving me the "red ass".

RT 190 Pop. 2000 year model. New flange appears to be Valterra. Old flange is from Canada.

You can replace everything- the ell, the two valves, and their flanges. The valves probably will soon need replacing anyhow.

I changed the valve. It is a Bristol. Also, I did not mention that the elbow pipe I purchased has shorter flange ends than the original pipe. It seems to me that there are too many plumbing systems/standards.

well you found a work around which should suit into the future.


many B's incl your and mine are made in Canada where different types of products are available or determined by practice or code

that could incl pvc pipe fittings


the Robertson R1 and R2 screws are used extensively throughout my B being common for CDN cabinetry and electrical.
My Previous owner didn;t know this and just about every cabinet screw on my B took a 1/8 to 1/4 turn to tighten up and get all the squeaks out- a few screws he buggered up with wrong tool.
I replaced by buying some matching screws while on a trip the Canada.

glad you have a fix!
