Toilet Drain Leak - Bad Seal?
Asked Oct 7, 2005, 11:35 AM
My home is 5 years old - first plumbing problem.
Our first floor half-bath. I noticed a mold ring forming around the base of the toilet. It's coming from underneath the flooring. No smells/odor - yet. After reading other posts - I'm going to try to remove the toilet, inspect the seal / replace it with a wax seal w/funnel (recommended by speedball1), take up the flooring a little and try to clean/bleach as much as possible, and let it dry out.
Looking up from the basement, I do see mold on the wood surrounding the toilet drain - maybe 4 square inches. How do I handle this? It's not spoongy. Thanks in advance...
