Toilet Leaking!

The toilet in the 1976 Streamline will flush - but then it leaves a puddle of water on the floor. Has anyone had this occur?

What may be the source of the leak? How would I fix it?

Any HELP would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!!

Wanda

It's clear water, right? The pedal/ lever/ whatever actuates the flush opens a valve that is located within the toilet base. It's leaking when open- will need to be replaced or possibly rebuilt. To find it, follow the water line - it will connect to the valve. Often, you need to remove the toilet to get to the valve.

Hi Wanda

Quite a community of Airstreamers and Vintage trailer enthusiasts around Minnesota

Typically toilets leak during flushing as a result of frost damage to the water valve and related components. It can be remarkably hard to get all the water out of these in the fall before putting the rig away for the winter. Compressed air alone isn't always sufficient, may have to disassemble or use antifreeze.

Anyway you'll have to figure out what model of toilet you have and then see if the valve can be replaced, or, it may make more sense to replace the whole toilet especially if it has other problems.
