I live in a house that's fed with very cold well water, and in the humid New England summers the condensation on our toilet tank resulted in permanent puddles on our bathroom floor. Using this kit didn't completely stop the "sweating," but it's greatly reduced.

Installing the insulation is pretty easy, though not trivial. What you get in the package is several sheets of styrofoam, one of which has some circular cutouts to fit around the drain and feed pipes in the toilet tank, a large tube of adhesive, and instructions. You have to empty and dry the inside of your toilet tank before beginning the installation. The styrofoam has to be cut into pieces that are then fit into place inside the tank. Doing the bottom of the tank is the hardest, requiring that you cut out a number of little pieces to fit around the pipes. If the sides of your tank are curved (as most are), you'll have to cut the foam into strips small enough to follow the curve fairly closely. The foam lining isn't supposed to be water tight, but gaps of more than 1/8" between your pieces should be avoided--the one spot on my tank that still sweats most noticeably is at a corner where I left a gap of about 3/16". The biggest time sink in the job is waiting for the adhesive to dry--you have to apply the glue to both surfaces and then wait 5 to 10 minutes before sticking each piece in place. You're also supposed to wait 5 hours before filling the tank, so, um, "plan ahead" if you only have one bathroom.

Some of the adhesive had hardened in the tube I received, but there was still plenty enough to do the job. If there hadn't been, I expect that a 5-minute epoxy would have worked fine as a substitute--perhaps even better than the provided adhesive, since there wouldn't be as much wait-time for it to cure.

Modern toilet tanks do not have 4 flat sides as they did many years ago. The kit comes with foam that does not lend itself to bending to the curved contours of current tank designs. The adhesive is also inadequate in its ability to help keep the foam attached to the curves.

Great concept, but it needs to be updated with a material that can conform to multiple curves found in virtually all modern toilet tanks.

Not worth the time and trouble. Hard to install and the glue sent with it was too dry to use. Tank still sweated, would not recommend.

Not worth the money, only thin foam that falls apart. If I could give less stars it would be -10.

I had trouble getting it to seal, but it was my own fault I am sure. I would buy this product again, and may just do that as I need one.

I purchased this per the advertisement for it and description, however it is not really a liner and does nothing to stop leaks which it was purchased for, according to a plumber friend, it is for tank "sweating" and doesn't really work for that either, but it does reduce the amount of water used...so maybe it should be advertised a "green" liner...
