Published Date: February 13th, 2023 | Category: Plumbing Tips

Is water leaking onto the bathroom floor around the base of your toilet? This is something you’ll want to get fixed quickly to prevent damage to your floor and an increased water bill.

Here are some troubleshooting tips:

  • Check to see if the toilet has shifted.
  • Shifting can break down the wax seal, allowing water to seep out under the toilet.
  • If the toilet has shifted, you can sit on it and try twisting it back into position.
  • If that doesn’t work, you may need to replace the wax ring on your toilet.

Hopefully these tips will fix the problem. If you need assistance replacing the wax ring under your toilet or still can’t get the leaking to stop, contact us for expert plumbing repair.
