Toilet flange not level

While I went too quick with the PCV cement, I did not glued my extension straith and the toilet flange is not leveled (the bubble is on the far left). I wonder if the 3in PVC pipe and glue can handle some pressure if somehow I grout it to hold it strait/leveled. Is there specs on that somewhere?

Or is it better to start over.? I don't want any leaks.

Is that your finished floor showing in the photo? If it is then you definetely should redo the flange. It is WAY too high... and crooked.

The toilet flange is okay provided that:
1. It does not wobble or wiggle in any direction,
2. The bottom of the toilet does not touch it.

There are several problems there.
Not only is the flange too high... the hole in the floor is too big with no place to fasten the flange to.
The flange must be securely attached to the floor.

Is there access to that pipe/fitting from below ?
