Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

The only way it leaks at the seal when e toilet isn't flushed is if the flapper is leaking by into the bowl. Where exactly is it leaking? at the floor?
