I think you are stopping a fan of some of the cell of CT but not isolating water. It creates mist which corrodes the pipes. If you isolate water also whenever you stop fan possibly the painting will last longer.

We have had good results with this product "reactivegel" It is smeared on the pipe and then wrapped.... It is self healing, if scraped or punctured.... I think this is the company's website http://www.reactivegel.com
