Default Changing Flange

Any opinions on whether or not the toilet flange should always be changed when replacing a toilet?

Unless the flange is broken, leave it alone.

I take it on a case by case basis, but to make a blanket rule that a flange needs to be changed every time you pull a toilet, no.

If its broken, try a quick and easy fix. Its a toilet flange repair kit from 3D Plumbing Products and works on cast iron, PVC or ABS flanges and on 3" or 4" flanges. Its the perfect fix.
