Condensate can build up around the outside of a toilet bowl and that's often referred to as "sweating".
Condensate is caused when the air is very humid and an object (in this case, the toilet tank) is colder than the air.
Look up something called "dew point"; that describes the point at which the water that is suspended in the air will start to condense on cooler objects.
Dehumidifiers and refrigeration type air conditioners can help reduce condensate.
You can remove the float and stem by doing the following:
1. turn the water off and flush the toilet . Hold the handle for a while to make certain that you get as much water out as possible, then remove the rest of the water using a towel or whatever means available.
2. Look where the water supply line feeds into the tank. There should be a nut that holds the pipe to the tank. Remove the nut then carefully move the pipe a little out of the way... not much.
3. There should be ANOTHER nut that attaches the float assembly. Remove it and note where the rubber washers are. You may even want to replace the washers when you're done, to make certain that the tank doesn't leak.
4. When you remove that nut, the float assembly may stick a little, but gently work it "back and forth" a little and you should be successful.
Good luck

My central air AC unit (Double wide home) always works for generally up to two hours, then it freezes up, by the copper pipes ice over, shutting them off and letting them thaw out, works to get it going...

You are absolutely right! The copper pipes should have insulation them. When they don't and they get cold in hot weather, they sweat and then freeze. Tubular Foam Insulation is what you need. Most home centers carry it. Once you cut and install it, be sure to wrap it in a good quality Duct Tape.

Hope this helped you. Good luck.

Tank sweats profusly

Sweating tank can cause moisture problems inside bathroom.
Sweating is caused when incoming water temperature is hotter or colder than air temperature inside bathroom.
You can verify this by not flushing tank for several hours and notice that sweating stops once water inside tank warms or cools to same temperature inside bathroom.
Problem can also be cause when there is not enough ventilation inside bathroom and water on tank does not evaporate.

To solve problem:
1) Increase bathroom ventilation and add dehumidifier or fan so condensation drys.
2) Insulate interior of tank. Empty water and let tank dry. Tape off moveable parts. Use can of spray foam and insulate inside of tank. Let foam dry and cut away excess foam.
3) Add tempering tank or staging tank inside room to pre-heat/cool water before it enters tank

Our crane toilet has a hard foam lining in the tank which seems to be collecting black mould. How do I get rid of this?

You could turn the water off to the toilet behind it and then flush it removing water in the tank.At this point you will have to try and remove the foam by putting a putty knife behind it and loosen it seeing it is held on with an epoxy.Once the water is out you can remove left over small debris with a vacuum. Remember that the foam is used to keep the toilet from sweating on the outside during warm weather and you may get a large build up of condensate forming on the outside of the tank.Let me know if this helps

I find puddles of water in front of bowl

If you're finding puddles of water in front of the bowl ON THE FLOOR, then most likely your wax seal is leaking between the floor and the drain piping. You will have to disconnect toilet, remove water from toilet, remove toilet from floor. There is one other possibility, but not likely If it is just a small amout of water, it could be condensation. If your water source is cold (like well water in summer time) and it is hot and humid in your house sometimes toilet tanks sweat.

We just istalled the Saniplus in our basement. the macerator pump is pretty loud when the toilet is flushed. Is there anyway of covering the box to muffle the sound?


Yes you can make the unit sound a bit quieter by sitting it on some foam or bubble wrap as I am guessing it is presently on floor screed or tiles?

I have mine boxed in and tiled (plywood with tiling on top and plastic edging). It is put together so that it can be removed for maintenance of the Saniplus unit. You can also put foam or some insulation in between the Saniflo unit and the boxing-in to deaded the sound.

It unfortunately will never be as quiet as a conventional toilet flush but that is one of the trade-offs

If this helps please leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more
