In reply to Leaking toilet that caused it to leak thru the basement ceiling by Yvette on March 9th, 2003 06:53 PM [Go to top of thread]

If it has "been leaking 8 months and now has a hole below the size of a coffee cup", I would strongly suspect wood rot and damage, mold and other NASTy problems in the ceiling below that will need addressed.
- Do they wax seal and fix the leak; let it dry for a week or so, and then start tearing out the ceiling below enough to Inspect for damage and rot BEFORE doing the repairs below; HOPEfully, you won't have MAJOR PROBLEMS?
p.s. Use Rubber gloves, face mask, lots of Hand soap and maybe a Hand sanitizer
