Ever since we have moved into our new house (less than 2 years old), we have been getting mildew in the toliet tanks. This is only occuring in 2 of the 4 toliets. When you lift the toliet tank lid, you could see mildew along the tank that is not covered by water, mildew on the toliet tank lid, and mildew forming on the wall where there is a dip where the toliet tank lid and tank meet. I have never experienced this before. Any ideas?

Hi barb in texas,
This is not uncommon although can be a source of concern for some.You need to look at the environmental factors where the problem toilets are located.Is there ventilation?Are they heated the same as the other two areas?Are hot showers taken in these bathrooms?Something along these lines should give you an idea.Also make sure the water is not tempered to these toilets.Good Luck!
