Condensation on pipes will usually occur on copper pipes.
While pipe condensation isn't a very common occurrence, it can happen to any
copper plumbing system, given the right circumstances. There are a few causes
for pipe condensation and all of them can be fairly easy to diagnose and
One cause is when the water running through the copper pipes
is much colder than the surrounding air. When this happens, condensation forms
on the pipes because the surrounding air is trying to get the temperature of
the cold pipes to equalize. The same thing happens to a cold beverage on a warm
day. This type of condensation is also called sweating.
Another of the causes for pipe condensation is when the
humidity in the space is unusually high, condensation will naturally form on
the water pipes. An easy solution to this problem is to place a dehumidifier in the
room. This will help to reduce the moisture in the room, preventing
condensation from forming.
Oftentimes, the water in the cold water lines will just be
too cold. Unusually cold water in the lines can be caused when a toilet leaks, causing cold water to constantly be drawn out. People are
surprised to know that the sources of plumbing problems are not always what
they appear to be!
