If you are currently living in an older home or apartment building, then you may have noticed your toilet sweating with the warmer weather. The reason for this excess moisture is simple: when the hot, summer air reaches your cool, porcelain toilet fixture it condenses. Depending on the extent of the weather, this moisture can drip down to your bathroom floor and can even cause rotting.
Fortunately, depending on your budget and preference, you can either choose to purchase a $10 cheap fix tray to place under the toilet tank in order to catch moisture or replace your old toilet with a new toilet that features an insulated tank.
The Advantages of an Insulated Tank
In addition to preventing moisture from damaging your floor, insulated toilet tanks offer several benefits:
- Insulated tanks are eco-responsible and can prevent the depletion of water by using less water per flush
- Less water means you will save more money on your water bill
- Insulated tanks can easily be installed and connected to fit any bathroom or plumbing configuration
Not Interested in a New Insulated Toilet Tank or Tray?
If you are unwilling to part with your toilet for whatever reason, you can also try to remedy your condensation problem by changing your family’s habits. Try to remember to:
- Turn on the bathroom fan and leave the door slightly ajar
- Lower humidity by taking cool and quick showers
- Flush only after a room has dried out to prevent filling your toilet with cold water (if possible)
Preventing condensation on your toilet is no sweat; insulated tanks will make sure that there is only warm water in your toilet, thereby preventing moisture damage to your bathroom floor. Our plumbers from John the Plumber will not only help you install your new toilet, but also try to offer advice as to which toilet is right for you and recommend whether you should consider any renovations/repairs.To learn all about the services available from John the Plumber, Kingston ON and surrounding area residents are encouraged to visit our website at www.JohnthePlumber.ca/ today.
