leaking cold water tank


Hi We seem to have an intermittent leak from our cold water tank. Only happens once every few months. Do you think it could be the ballcock?? Any other suggestions?? Thanks

Are you sure it is not condensation on the outside, which will be greater if the room air is more humid?

Is this a sealed tank like a pressure tank, or an top opening tank like a cistern?

It's an open top tank. Don't think it's condensation. Too much water for that. Thanks

It's water on the floor and can't see where it's coming from. Tank is made of plastic. Thanks
