I am noticing some water spots on my concrete in my (unfinished) basement. When I look up for the cause of the water I can see water dripping around the hole that is used for the sewer pipe for the toilet (upstairs). (Note: there is a lot of duct work around that spot, but I am fairly sure that is the source.)
Close examination around the base of the toilet (and in the upstairs bathroom in general) shows no water or moisture of any kind. It also only seems to leak when I flush it (I tried not flushing it for a few days and the wet spots started to dry out.)
So, I am not sure what to do. Should I rip my toilet off and try and fix it? Any ideas on how to do that? (I have never needed to install a toilet before.)
I am reasonably "handy" around the house, but if this is going to be a big/complicated job I would like to know so I can just hire a plumber.
