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

I have a Haier 45 pint dehumidifier, that seems to be working ok. Water bucket fills up, but the unit appears to be sweating.


the sweating is on the coils and is the humidity forming into dew drops that collects in the tank
if you want the de-humidifer to work as planned you have to restrict new humidity getting into the room ie close the doors and windows.
