Wet around toilet-where to begin?
Back from our trip to Montana, we are dreading our first repair job. A few days out on our trip, we began to notice dampness around the toilet base. I've gotten down and felt around the lines leading to the toilet, but found no wet there. When I reach around the back base of the stool on the floor, I find wet. The carpet is now damp, not standing in water, about 8-10 inches out from the toilet into the open space of our center bath. We've read just about everything related to bath-stool leaks in this forum, but we are hesitant to begin, fearing to tear into something that doesn't need a fix. Would someone walk us through the steps to determine our problem? Are these fix-it-yourself jobs for non-handy people (old, stiff, clumsy!) or is it a hireable job? After reading, I suspect something in the flushing levers, but will appreciate some advice and assurance as we begin this. . .job. Thanks
