Jeff asked 3 months ago

Hey I flushed the toilet and it overflowed to the rim (not above the toilet bowl rim). However the base of the toilet began leaking on one side. This has happened twice, but since then I have had no problems and the water level in the bowl is very low. I was wondering what the problem could be?

Hello Jeff:
It sounds like the drain line to the toilet may not be clear.  Pull the toilet and run a snake through the line to see if you can clear whatever is clogging it.  Please let me know if you have any other plumbing related questions. Best of luck with your plumbing repair!
