So about 9 months ago we had new flooring put in and they took the toilet off. When they put the toilet back on it's now higher off the floor because they broke the closet flange and just put a metal plate cover over it to hold it on (Like the $10 Menards ones, so it is done properly). Ever since the work, the toilet would double flush and seemed to get clogged more often (as in only clogged once in the year before the work). I moved the float down as far as I could and that seems to have fixed the double flush problem but it still clogs alot if not more now that I've done that. What could they have done when re installing it to make it clog and require plungering more often?
2nd, I really hate how high the toilet is now(A full shim off the ground)but I looked at the plumbing and putting a new closet flange on would be a nightmare because of how much re-work would be needed to change all the piping back to the main 3" pipe line and even some of that. Is there any other option besides the metal cover they screwed into my floor to fix the current broken closet flange? If not I will just live with the new height.
