    hi i've just noticed that the toilet has just began to leak only when i flush - it has a back soil pipe so i can see the leak coming from the joint.

    my neighbour give me some "everbuild" plumbers putty but i've read that "plumbers mait" would be better - can anyone please advise?

    the bathroom urgently needs refurbished so i just need a temp repair to last a few months.

    cheers

  3. If it's a quick temporary fix then denso tape will do if the leak is from the pan connector - might be worth checking the flush pipe as they leak more often

    Wear disposable gloves if using denso tape, good stuff but filthy to work with!
