Water Pools Around Base of Toilet | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber will help you if your toilet springs a leak.

You decided to take a quiet stroll around Anclote River Park this morning to clear your head after the noise and excitement of the holidays. Unfortunately, your peace was shattered when you returned home to find water pooling around the base of your toilet.

Pooling water around the toilet base is always a cause for concern—is the toilet leaking from tank, bowl, or somewhere else? It’s often the result of a leaking wax ring seal,” according to Bob Vila. “To test if the wax ring has gone bad, squirt some food coloring into the toilet bowl and then flush the toilet. If colored water runs out from around the base, you’ll have to replace the wax ring.”

That’s a pretty straightforward repair, and many homeowners can try to change the ring itself. But, Bob Vila warns, “it involves physically lifting the entire toilet, which can weigh anywhere from 70 to 125 pounds depending on size and style. Such types of toilet repairs will require a strong back or, better yet, a helper.”

If that’s something more than you want to try, then it’s time to call the trusted 24-hour Tampa Bay plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
