Either wax ring or sewage pipe is leaking. If you cant open the ceiling from below to look for leak you may have to remove toilet inspect pipe and look to see if it was leaking from wax ring and if it could have gone downstairs without leaking out too. If leak couldn't have come from wax ring the leak must be coming from a pipe in the floor. Find the simplest way to access it to repair it.

Hi,
There is a wax seal between the bottom of the toilet and the septic piping... this seal is broken and needs to be replaced....
You will need to pull out the toilet and replace that wax ring seal...not that hard of a job to do...

I have a water leak in bathroom not from toilet. How can I check the pluming in that area?


Your idea may correct. But majority of cases it is floor/ground seepage....leaks through your tiles or waterproofing layers and so on..To chk...keep on pouring water to the ground of the bathroom, near wetting areas, and close the freshwater line leading to the bathroom taps

Bathroom leak


Most likely the problem is a leaking drain pipe in the wall, perhaps because of a failed joint. The reason it's not going down the wall to the floor of the dining room is because there is a top plate on the wall. Most likely the water is running down the bathroom wall, then out over the dining room drywall ceiling. It is finding the lowest spot in the area to accumulate and is soaking into the drywall. Since it is drain water, it is dirty and is picking up additional contaminates from the wall and causing the brown stain. It may or may not be soft, depending on how much water accumulates at one time, but it is slowly breaking down the ceiling where the stain is.
That said, are you sure it's a leak, or are you assuming that since you see the stain on the ceiling. I say this because mice, like many other rodents, usually pick one location to use as their bathroom. If you have mice in the ceiling and this is where they do their thing, you will get the same type of indication.

I have a toto toilet , model MS604114CEFG , bought 2 years ago . Last night , when I flushed it , the water level in the toilet bowl did not come down . It stay high in the bowl . In the tank reservoi


If the toilet is the only fixture in the bathroom group that is having an issue, then there is a partial blockage in Strap of toilet or in drain pipe close to toilet. If other fixtures are showing sluggish drainage, then the main drainage line is clogged. If all is fine with tub lav shower etc., pull toilet from floor and carefully turn upside down, and look to see if anything is visable. if so remove it and reinstall with new seal(wax ring). Also, look into pipe and see if any water is standing in it. If water is standing in pipe, the drain line is clogged and must be rodded(snaked) out to cure problem

Bathroom leaks from upstairs bathroom


There are several causes for this, but I need to know.... Which fixture leaks ( toilet,sink,shower/tub) ? If you don't know, you'll need to determine which is leaking. Is the wetness coming through the ceiling, on the floor, under the sink, etc.?
I'd like to help but I need more info.
Hope this helps!!

Do you recommend 'sealing' the bottom of a toilet with silicone?


no, it will yellow if p gets on it. Use a flexible acrylic caulk, but not an acrylic adhesive because it will make it hard to lift the toilet in the future without damaging the floor.

REMOVAL OF TOTO AQUIA TOILET


first shut off water and then flush the john. this will remove most of the water. for water remaining in tank us a sponge or similar to remove remaining water. find where toilet bolts to floor and remove these bolts or nuts. then pick whole toilet from floor, there should be a wax ring under toilet, replace wax ring when putting back in. when putting back in just push down on toilet to squish wax ring and bolt to floor, turn on water and check for leaks. good luck

No toilet flange


Go to a hardware outlet(Lowe's, HomeDepot, etc.) and ask for a commode drain extension that can be placed over the existing and bring it up to the level of your floor. I also like the wax rings with the cup molded in. These can be doubled up also but not as reliable as the extension.

American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops


The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe
