Recently there's been an odd, damp smell coming from one of our bathrooms. On further inspection, there seems to be a leak on this pipe where it connects to the bowl (where the little red arrow is). However, it seems that the seal is made further into the bowl than I can get to or see, so it will be necessary to move the bowl.
What is the name of this pipe? I don't think it's the cistern inlet pipe, but it's definitely not the soil pipe.
The pipe looks fine, it doesn't look cracked and there doesn't seem to be a great deal of water coming from it during a flush which makes me think it's just a seal. I guess to get in at it I'd have to disconnect the pipe from the cistern and the soil pipe from the toilet, then unscrew it from the floor and move it out?
I'm always keen to give these things a go but is this one step too far? My father said he never messed with water, electric or gas but one has to live a little, no?
If you do recommend this, what should I expect to find? Any tips?
