Raleigh Plumber: Why Condensation Forms on Your Toilet

If you’re a plumber in Raleigh, you learn to deal with a lot of leaks. They’re easily the biggest plumbing problems homeowners face and plumbers see a wider variety of leaks than most layman could even conceive. While it always pays to be cautious, however, one of the leaks we see a lot of isn’t a leak at all: its condensation built up on the surface of your toilet. A toilet leak can be a serious problem, but you should make sure that it is a leak and not condensation. Why does condensation form on my toilet tank you ask?

Condensation is created when cold water enters your toilet tank, which causes the surface of the tank to cool down. That in turn affects the nearby air around the toilet tank. If the temperature on the surface of the tank is low enough and the humidity is high enough, it will cause the moisture in the air to condense on the porcelain of the toilet, resulting in beads of water. Considering the amount of humidity we get in the Raleigh area, such sweaty toilets are fairly common.

The good news is that they’re usually nothing to worry about, though excessive condensation can drip down onto the floor and damage surrounding materials. In most cases, you can wipe up the condensation with a towel, or purchase a number of store-bought solutions such as liners and condensation trays. The trouble arises if you wipe up the condensation and the water continues to appear. In that case, you probably have a leak and a trained plumber should be brought in.

The important thing is to determine is whether it really is condensation, or whether you have a more significant problem. If you do, call on JD Service Now to help. We can repair or replace a cracked toilet, and offer solutions to any other bathroom plumbing issue you might be having. Give us a call today!
