Message:

I have a softener and well pump that get bad condensation in summer. It runs down to the floor and then to a drain. Outside of a dehumidifier what ideas do you have? I thought about insulating but that will trap moisture and cause mold.

Insulation, if done properly, should keep it from condensing in the first place. The next best option would be to confirm the space that itís in. --50.219.xxx.xxx

If you don't feel like spending a couple $100 a year on dehumidifier ,energy cost, good ventilation in the hot humid summers helps, as hopfully the moisture may dry faster than an unvenrilated area --71.207.xx.xx

Pipe insulation around all the pipes where most building supply stores carry pipe insulation. The basement may require solid board insulation where that will always reduce humidity. Installing a sump pump will also reduce humidity in basement. --74.220.xxx.xxx

ventilation will deter moisture buildup however insulating with swimming pool noodles is a quick way to get started. --184.59.xxx.xx

It is the softner and the expansion tank that leak the most. Insulating the pipes will help and good point about circulation. I might try a little fan on it.

I agree insulated right will eliminate issue but I have to keep on eye on it and watch for mold.

Thanks! --74.81.xxx.xx
