How To Fix A Toilet Leaking At Base

  1. First, turn off the water supply to the toilet by closing the shut-off valve, which is typically located behind the toilet or on the wall behind it.
  2. Flush the toilet to drain the water from the tank and bowl.
  3. Use a towel or sponge to soak up any remaining water around the base of the toilet.
  4. Loosen the bolts that hold the toilet to the floor using a socket wrench or pliers.
  5. Carefully lift the toilet off the floor and set it aside.
  6. Inspect the wax ring for signs of damage or compression. If the wax ring is damaged, you will need to replace it.
  7. Clean the area around the drain opening with a toilet brush or scraper to remove any debris or old wax.
  8. Place the new wax ring over the drain opening and press it down firmly to create a seal.
  9. Place the toilet back onto the floor, making sure that it is aligned properly with the drain opening.
  10. Tighten the bolts securely to hold the toilet in place.
  11. Turn the water supply back on and flush the toilet to test for leaks.

If you are still experiencing leaks after following these steps, you may need to inspect the toilet more closely for cracks or other problems, or you may need to call our plumber for further assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Common Causes Of Toilet Leaks At Base?

Let’s look at some of the most common causes for leaks at the base of a toilet.

  • Problem with the Wax Ring
  • Condensation
  • Loose Bolts
  • Cracked Toilet Bowl

In order to fix this issue, the toilet bowl will need to be emptied and then the cracks will need fixing with a waterproof sealant. If, however, water still escapes, it might indicate a need for an entirely new toilet.

What Do I Do With A Toilet That Keeps Clogging?

While our upstairs bathroom flushes easily, the downstairs one is having difficulty fully emptying. To determine if this issue lies within a clogged toilet or in need of plumbing intervention requires further investigation. We recommend running multiple successive tests to flush out any potential blockages before seeking professional help with root-clearing and assessing sewer lines for deeper issues.

Why A Vibrating Sound In The Walls When Toilet Flushes?

A faulty diaphragm gasket inside the toilet’s fill valve can cause more than just a leak. When it loses its elasticity, micro vibrations may travel back into your plumbing and create an unpleasant noise when you flush. To test this theory, gently lift on the float arm and identify if such is indeed the case – replace either way to ensure proper system functioning!

My toilet is making weired noises, should I be concerned?

Yes. That means the internal parts are failing and are no longer operating correctly, and you are losing water.

Why Do I Get A Foul Smell Every Time I Flush My Toilet?

Does your bathroom smell foul and you don’t know why? It could be due to a faulty wax ring seal on the toilet. Air needs somewhere to escape when water is entering through drains, so if it isn’t sealed properly then any air gets forced into the room instead of up through the main vent pipe. If that’s blocked too, then no matter how often we flush our toilets they’ll still retain an unpleasant odor! To solve this problem simply reseal your toilet base and check for anything blocking or obstructing your roof vent – in doing both these tasks you should eliminate those pungent odors from infiltrating other areas of your home.

How long does a toilet last?

It totally depends on the mineral level in the water and the volume of us. Some toilets will need servicing or replacing at the 5-year mark, some may last 20 years.
