Condensation Build Up on the Outside of the Toilet Bowl - August 8th 2005
Q: We live in Winnipeg in a mobile home. Every spring and summer we have the same problem. The problem is condensation build up on the outside of the toilet bowl and the tank. (Also on the water supply pipe) We have a carpet in the bathroom and it is getting ruined because of this problem. We have tried tank insulation and a tray under the tank but nothing has worked to our satisfaction. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
A: The simple answer to this problem is to turn your bathroom exhaust fan on during every shower or bath and leave it on for a minimum of one hour per bath or shower.
In other words 2,3,4 showers - 2,3 4 hours of venting. It's Just that Easy. The high humidity in the room meeting the cold water in the lines and tanks causes the condensation to form. Get rid of the high moisture level and you will correct your problem.
