A toilet flange, also known as a closet flange, is a critical component in the plumbing system of a bathroom. It is a round or square-shaped fitting that connects the toilet to the waste pipe in the floor. The flange is typically made of PVC, ABS, or metal, and it is secured to the floor using screws or bolts.

The purpose of the toilet flange is to create a secure and watertight connection between the toilet and the waste pipe. It provides a stable base for the toilet to sit on and seals the connection to prevent leaks and odors from escaping. 

The toilet flange also aligns the toilet bowl with the waste pipe, ensuring proper drainage and flushing function. During toilet installation, the flange is positioned over the waste pipe and secured to the floor. The toilet is then placed over the flange, and bolts are used to fasten it in place. A wax ring or rubber gasket is placed between the toilet and the flange to provide a watertight seal.

Overall, the toilet flange plays a crucial role in maintaining the integrity and functionality of the bathroom plumbing system.
