Water seeping in bathroom floor


On my main floor bathroom water is seeping up through my vinyl tiles. There doesn't seem to be anything leaking from the toilet or sink. I don't know how we would check to see if the tub is leaking? Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Have you removed the toilet yet??

That's the most common cause---Ase you on a slab or wood framed floor?

As to the tub--an in wall camera inserted through the mixer valve hole could see under the tub.

We are going to replace the toilet I am guessing it is about 20 yrs old. Wish us luck as this is the first time trying something like this. Thanks for your help

Be prepared for a surprise or two---

Soft or rotting wood----rusted or broken flange--those are two common 'little surprises'--Mike---
