My toilet seems to have developed a leak at the point that it 'plugs'
into the waste pipe at the back. My first question therefore - is
there an easy way of re-sealing this joint?
This may be a good time to change the toilet completely. I replaced
the floor in the bathroom many years ago with thick terracotta tiles
but, being fairly new to the DIY game I didn't fancy taking the toilet
out to do it. So I botched it and the loo now sits in a 'recess' in
the new floor about an inch deep. Ok - nobody's perfect.
The problem with re-seating the toilet on top of the tiled surface
would be the waste pipe. How can I get the toilet to mate with the
pipe now that it's going to be and inch or so higher? Does this mean
moving the waste pipe? This would entail knocking a slightly different
hole in the outside wall and changing the connection to the down pipe
outside - a big job. Is there no easy way to re-jig this to get around
the height difference?
Thanks in advance for any advice.....
