The toilet doesn't rock; however, there is discoloration on the floor around the base of the toilet, indicating that some water leakage has occurred at some time in the past. There is not enough leakage to wet the rug in front of the toilet, so I'm guessing the toilet is probably leaking just a small amount when flushed (please correct me if I'm wrong). The toilet doesn't rock - it's still snug on its base.
I would think that I need to remove the toilet, replace the wax seal, and then regrout around the base. Do you have other ideas or recommendations?
What's the best way to do the job, what type of grout is recommended, should the excess be wiped up with a wet sponge immediately, and what's the recommended tightening procedure for the bolts?
