Is your toilet leaking? This is a very common problem. The toilet has a wax seal underneath and sometimes water leaks from its base. You will notice this problem if you see water around the toilet’s base, and the cause is not the bowl overflowing. The wax ring around the toilet acts as a seal for the water and also for the sewer gases. If the water leaking from the base of the toilet brings a strong smell of the sewer gases, you need to fix the seal between the toilet and the flange.
