How to Stop Your Toilet from Sweating

Do you have a sweaty toilet? Not only is this just a terrible term, but it is also a potential problem for your bathroom. when you have a toilet with a lot of condensation, that water has to go somewhere. Thanks to gravity, it will generally end up on the floor. Too much water on the bathroom floor could end up ruining the flooring.

Why does the toilet sweat? The water in the bowl, and the toilet itself, are often cooler than the surrounding air. This creates moisture, which then causes a sweaty toilet. Naturally, you want to eliminate this from happening. You will find several things that you can try.

Less Water in the Bathroom

Make sure you are using the exhaust fan when you are taking a shower. This will help to ensure more of the warm air and moisture is removed from the bathroom. you can also reduce the temperature of your shower and take shorter showers to reduce the moisture in the air.

Open the door, and possibly a window, to the bathroom when you are done showering or taking a bath. This allows the air and moisture to escape rather than being trapped in the bathroom. However, if it is humid outside, you will want to keep your bathroom window closed, as it could make the problem worse if it is open.

Reduce the water in the tank by getting a low-flow toilet. This will help you save water, and since there is less water in the toilet, it will mean less condensation. It might not stop it entirely, but if you use the other methods discussed here, it could eliminate the sweaty toilet.

Dry It Out

Using an air conditioner or dehumidifier in the bathroom can help to dry out the bathroom air. This will, in turn, ensure the toilet doesn’t collect condensation. There is also the option of installing an anti-sweat valve t the water supply line that leads to the toilet.

Add Some Heat

This will add a small amount of hot water to the toilet so that the bowl and tank are warmed up. This will stop the condensation from forming no matter the weather. This is a relatively simple addition that a plumbing company should be able to handle for you.

Don’t ignore a sweaty toilet. Use these tips to get a better handle on the condensation in your bathroom. Contact the Plumbers at Open-Drains Today!
