Re: What is the drain/flange supposed to look like?
Personally I wouldn't have left the tile out from under the flange. Instead it looks as though the easy way out was taken instead of notching the tile.

Being that the flange and drain are white colored indicates the material is PVC. When PVC piping is joined a primer is first applied before being solvent cemented ( glued )
There's some type of purple substance that appears to be sealing the interface between the flange and drain, but for the life of me I can't figure out the orientation of the pipes. If this is in fact a sealant, there are some gaps which would clearly allow drainage to seap through.
In other words --- the purple residue you see is not a sealer but rather the primer / solvent-cement.
Not sure of the question --- as seen the the drain changes direction --- which is normal
Based on these pictures, can anyone tell what the drain/flange schematic looks like? Is this possibly a problem?
