Does it leak all the time or just when you flush it? It could be just the wax gasket has given out and is letting water by when it flushes. You can pull the toilet real easy to check. A new wax ring cost $2. If it is a pipe, then, you will have to bust open the wall and make the repair, and patch it back up. But don't put it off, the water will do more damage the longer you wait, it also grows mold and attracts termites. They love wet wood. Hope this helps.

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

It leaks water on the floor around the base when flushed. Only leaks when flushed Godfrey

The wax ring seal on the bottom of the toilet has let go. It isn't tough to fix. Two nuts hold the toilet down. Shut the water line in back off, take the 2 nuts off, and move the toilet aside. You;ll need a new wax ring, so you'll have to scrape the old one off. It will show you how to set it in and set the seat on. It only looks tough, but it's actually simple. Good luck!

Water leaking onto the floor after flushing

check around where the tank meets the bowl and see if water appears when you flush and if so you need a new tank gasket. If it's coming from where the toilet meets the floor you will have to change the wax seal underneath. That happens when the toilet rocks and ruins the wax gasket.

I have a new Kohler Toilet that has a different flushing system from other Toilets. It's about 1 year old now and I'm noticing a Drip noise on the 1st floor under this Toilet. It looks to me like the water...

Basically, if water is flowing out of the overflow tube, then water must be coming in...I would suggest that you check the intake valve, it is probably not shutting off completely when the float comes up to the prescribed level,and continues to leak some water into the tank. That is what the overflow tube is there for.

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.
