Leaking toilet

Do you have to take the toilet out if it is leaking from the hose at the back?

Only if you can't see where the leak is coming from. The connection for incoming water is the only connection on mine that is suppose to cause an external leak. I replaced the flushing valve and yes the toilet will need to come off for that. My vent controller mounted on the rear of the "china II" toilet dripped for two months, already two years old, and then it quit for no apparent reason. Maybe water pressure had something to do with that one? Best way to figure where the water is coming from is to wrap the area with toilet paper (after wiping everything off). Good luck!!!

It is leaking from the hose going into the toilet at the back you can see it dripping there we just bought flexseal to see if that will stop because we can't turn on the water without it pouring out

May be a lot easier to remove the two hold down nuts and pick up the head. Much better access to the bowl and connections. Can normally reuse the gasket which is not wax. Flexseal won't fix it but may prevent future proper repair. Hose can be had at box or hardware store.

What model is your toilet? It sounds like your water valve is failing. If at all possible do not remove the toilet bowl - getting the seal back can be problematic.
