Please advsie: My toilet has a leek and small drips are going downstairs to y dining room. What do you think it probably is the wax seal or somebody told me something about a bent lead...is this the correct saying?
You will need to investigate the leak first by looking at the toilet around the top of the bowl towards the tank . There are two bolts that attach the tank to the bowl, look in the area for any signs of leakage or maybe if you are fortunate enough to even see a drip. If none are apparent the toilet will need to come up and the wax ring replaced.
Buddy BE VERY CAREFUL lead bends are a real pain, if your home is that old don not even attempt to repair the problem as you will only cause more damange.
My granddad use to install this things , as they have to be crafted to the need.
If you still have one and it is leaking, you have a problem. Get ready to remove either the cieling or the bathroom floor for replacement.
Most lead bends are 4" lead short sweeps, this size is quite hard to replace with any materails today as they were designed in place.
