Condensation problem on WC toilets

Drops of water appear on the toilet water tank, as well as the surrounding piping, what to do? Condensation forms on the toilets and the pipes that supply it with water, which causes the walls to mildew and the pipes to rust. We must act quickly to prevent the situation from deteriorating. Condensation is formed because there is a thermal bridge in the room that causes the water vapor to clump against the coldest part of the toilet or the bathroom in which the toilet is located. It is therefore necessary to break this thermal bridge.

Reason for the appearance of condensation:

– The toilet is too cold, water flows constantly. The float system is faulty. Try to disassemble the device or change joints if possible. Remember to turn off the water tap before handling to prevent water damage. If the flow of water continues, then consider buying a new toilet float valve. This is inexpensive and always cheaper than replacing the entire toilet. The cost of lost water must not be underestimated either financially or ecologically.

– The ventilation duct is closed. It must be checked to see if it is not too dirty, if the air can evacuate properly. Put a duct extractor to facilitate the evacuation of too much moisture and therefore water vapor present in the room.

– Switching on the heating reduces the thermal bridging effect. But it is quickly expensive in terms of energy cost.

– Replace the toilet tank with a new version with an internal insulation that will make the toilet less cold and therefore less conducive to see the water condense on it. It is not necessary to change the seat.
