Just installed new bathroom suite without any major problems apart from one
The cistern above the new toilet is developing condensation on the outside
of the tank and leaking onto the newly fitted floor .....
Can anyone advise how i can resolve this .I can only assume that water is to
cold ? the old toilet had a plastic cistern where as the newly fitted one is
ceramic not sure if that has any releavance or not
Have had the same problem myself, hopefully putting in the extractor fan
i've purchased will do the trick. Palindrme offered some useful
suggestions.....Sue....are you there again :-). The problem is the water
droplets from the hot water (condensation) hitting the cold surface of the
cistern, so you've either got to get rid of the droplets (extract) or warm
the cistern. Hopefully the first option will work. Oh and by the way,
building regs.......you are apparently supposed to have a timed extractor
fan fitted with an isolating switch outside your bathroom.....pah..
I know its too late for you but havig suffered ths problem for many years I
decided to change my bathroom and instal back to the wall toilet pan within
hidden cistern, and a countertop basin.
In this case the cistern is hidden. but even then has a moulded expanded
polystytrene jacket to stop this problem....as well as the obligatory 3
ceiling mount fans to remove the high humidity...something I am afraid that
you cannot avoid in bathrooms.
