Sweating toilet

I thought I saw a show where a toilet was insulated, inside the tank, to stop sweating. Can anybody help?

Re: Sweating toilet

If your current toilet tank isn't lined .... kits are available at any hardware or home center.:)

Re: Sweating toilet

Don't know about insulating, but an ATOH show added a tempering valve that mixed a bit of hot water w/the toilet fill to keep the tank from sweating. As I recall the homeowner tried the insulation, but it didn't work for him. Large family, one bathroom.

My former house had the valves and I can attest that they work well and from what I've read are really the best solution to the problem. Pretty easy to install too if you have access to your pipes.
