Question about Home
The rear toilet flange is leakinh
Assuming the bowl is not broken you will need to pull the toilet by removing the nuts on the bolts on either side of the bowl. Once the bowl is removed re,move the existing wax ring and discard it. Check the flange to see if it has been broken. If it has you may be able to use a spanner flange to repair it. If it not and the whole flange needs replacing I advise you contact a plumber as it may require a bit more knowledge and tools to correct the issue than you may have at your disposal. If all is well than you may only need to buy a new wax ring to replace the old one. I would buy two in case an issue occurs with one you will have a spare at your disposal. If the toilet rocked or tilted before you should grout the area beneath it before resetting the toilet. Once you reset the toilet and tightened the bolts all that is left is grouting the edge of the bowl where it meets the floor. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya.
