Our cold water pipe in our bathroom is dripping with condensation. It feeds the basin and toilet and I wanted too ask how can I reduce or stop the condensation?

Would pipe insulation do this or do you know of a better solution

Insulate ;), but just check its not been dripped on by the underneath of the cistern

Is there anyway to insulate the cistern

I've heard about foam and a lining but is there a better way
I can't answer your question but I recently bought a replacement 'hidden' built in type cistern which came with a fitted hard polystyrene insulation jacket covering the lower water level area. Never seen that before. :)

My other half made up a material cover out of denim.

Piece of material to suit your own choice and then velcro strips top and bottom to fix it to the cistern, makes it removable for washing.
