base of head leaking a little

my 10+year head works alright, but it is leaking a little at the base, with some blue salt deposit forming and the base is a little wet. has been so for some time now. should this be a cause for major worry? what causes it and what is a low-cost remedy? thanks! yzlian

Install a new gasket. In the heat it'll start to smell.

Re: base of head leaking a little

Where is it leaking...where the bowl mounts onto the base? Or is the pump or base leaking onto the sole? What's the make/model/age of your toilet?
