how to stop steel pressure tank from sweating


Hi! I'm new to this forum, and perhaps the question I am about to ask
has be asked and answered.

I have a "Well X Trox" in the basement of the house.

To save money, we started washing more clothes in cold water.

The tanks and pipes leading into and away the tank sweat alot when
we wash clothes.

The tank is a blue steel, if there a good product there that could
be use to insulate this tank.

Thanks to all who take the time to answer my post.

Just place the pressure tank in a tray.

Covering it like others have done can and often does lead to mold.

The condensation is moisture from the room collecting on the cold pipes. Place a dehumidifier in the room and see if it improves.
