Pinpointing a toilet leak is easy and usually inexpensive. Here are some easy to follow procedures to locate a toilet leak: Wait 5-10 minutes after the last flush. Remove the tank cover. Is the water level in the tank too high and spilling into the overflow tube?

If the coloured water appears in the bowl, you have a leak.
