Leaking Toilet

Ask a Plumber

My toilet has been leaking at the base every time we flush, and also leaks into the basement. It has been like this for some time. Please advise as to what we should do.

Thank You

  1. It sounds like you have a toilet wax seal that is not sealing properly. This is a common problem that can be rectified by taking the toilet off and replacing the toilet seal. When you take the toilet off check the toilet flange to make sure it is in good condition. If it is damaged or broken it will need to be repaired before you put the toilet back on.
