Fixing a leaking toilet can be very difficult or very easy depending on the problem at hand.
Leaking into the bowl from the cistern / tank
This form of toilet leak causes an ongoing flow of water from the tank into the toilet bowl. Even a seemingly minor leak can waste a significant amount of water and cost you a lot of money in water expenses each month. In many cases the flapper could be misaligned, broken or deteriorated and causing the problem. To test this put some food colouring into the water tank and wait twenty minutes to see if the toilet has a leak the toilet water would be the colour of the food dye in the tank.
Leaking outside of the toilet bowl
It’s possible for a toilet leak to happen in a number of different places and for a number of different reasons. If your wax seal has been broken, don’t worry; it’s one of the most common seal problems and also one of the easiest to fix. Other frequent sources of leakage include the tank and bowl, both of which can be extremely expensive to fix depending on the extent of the damage or the quality of the installation.
