Vibration and condensation

Recommended Posts

I installed a booster pump to my reverse osmosis system.

And I realized there are water around the pump.

I thought it was leaking, so I checked all the pipe. It was not leaking.

And I realize there are a lot of condensation only when the pump is working.

There are so much condensation that water starts collecting at the bottom around the pump.

Since cold water coming in when pump, condensation is normal, but it really is excessive. So my question is would vibration from the pump enhance condensation?

Would fixing the pump with screws help?

I need to wipe it daily. That is annoying and I really need to find a solution.

I doubt vibration has anything to do with it.  Just insulate the pipe?

LMAO, sorry I'm a sucker for irony...

This is probably a small effect, but vibration may be encouraging the water to drip off of the pipe faster than normal. Since that water does provide a small mount of insulation, the air would be exposed to a lower temperature surface and this might cause a small amount of additional condensation.

But again - likely a small effect.
