That dripping off your equipment may not be a leak.
Every summer we get calls from customers concerned that their water treatment system is leaking. Don’t be alarmed if you see condensation on the plumbing lines and water treatment tanks as you use water in the summer. When the warm humid summer air touches the cold treatment equipment the humidity condenses into water. This condensed humidity can be enough to drip down or pool on the floor.
To determine if it is condensation or a leak, wipe down the pipe or tank and see if the tiny beads reappear across the surface.
What can you do?
- Fire up a dehumidifier near your equipment.
- Wrap your plumbing – tight.
- Wrap your tanks. You can use yoga mats and duct tape.
- Put drip trays under your equipment. Not sure where to find them? Give us a call.
Note: Trays can get gross if water sits in them for too long, so be sure to empty them out.
If you determine your water treatment equipment is in fact leaking or have any concerns about your water quality or system don’t hesitate to email, or give us a call at 603-641-5767.
