Toilet Leaks at Floor Level

Problem: Toilet leaks at floor level. Solution: If water is oozing from under the toilet or the flooring is damp, the seal made by the wax ring that connects the bottom of the toilet and the top of the waste pipe, called a closet flange, is broken. Try gently tightening (one full turn, maximum) the nuts that hold the toilet to the floor. If the problem persists, replace the wax ring.
