    I have rented out a house via a letting agent. In their recent inspection report, they said
    "The tenant reported that the rear of the toilet is leaking slightly. When I was present I took several photos (in the report). I can see from the pipe to the rear that there was a droplet on it however it didn’t drop the whole time I was there. It’s difficult to know if it’s condensation or a very slow leak. "

    I'd like to ask you guys the pipe in the photo is the water inlet pipe or overflow pipe? The toilet is a conventional float valve type toilet on the 1st floor. I suppose if it is inlet pipe, the water would be constant due to pressure not just droplet? I want to make sure which pipe it is before calling a plumber with £60 call out charge.

    It's not possible for me to see it myself (in another city) and the agent is also not sure.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Overflow pipe, try tightening the nut slightly and check inside cistern for lowering water level and adjust
