I did a ton of work for her... she even tried to hook me up with her granddaughter who was living with her while going to UCSD.

Removed this today. Lazy @#%@ers.

I expected to find a main beam under the flange but there was nothing. Looks like the last fitting they had on their truck was a 3" street 1/4 bend. Cut it off, reamed out the fitting and put a standard hub-hub 1/4 bend and it was perfect.

The guy told me he's always had problems with this toilet clogging. Gee, I wonder why. I told him I won't set his toilet back on that piece of garbage if there's a way to fix it. Unbelievable.

By thing-a-ma-jig do you mean offset toilet flange?

I guess technically it is, but I've never seen one like this. What a piece of garbage. The area left of the hub is completely flat. No slope whatsoever.

I also can't understand how this would ever work to accept a wax ring, yet there were no signs of leaks around the subfloor. Lucky?

Worst of all there was no reason for it to be there in the first place.

Those are garbage. Usually those two ears on the right side that hold the bolt break off.

The wax might of squished just enough to touch the far side?
